  • How are the bodies preserved?

Normally when something dies, bacteria and other
germs eat away the skin, muscles, and organs,
leaving only the bones behind.
Bacteria need water to live, so mummification
occurs if the body dries out quickly after death.

bones (no moisture).

    body was stuffed with sawdust, or linen.
