What You Will Learn


For the Ka to function it had to be able to return to the body. It would be disastrous if the body decayed and ceased to exist. So it had to be mummified and it had to be protected. Hence the building of pyramids to protect the burial site.

Funeral Boats

A very common Egyptian practise was to provide a funeral boat for the dead. Most of these boats were quite small, but Cheops, who always did things on a grand scale, had six huge boats

The Ba & The Ka

The Ba was sometimes symbolized by the Ba bird, which left the body and winged its flight to eternal bliss where it became absorbed into the great solar deity from which it had come.
