There was also a mysterious plague of missing hieroglyphs at the time of the New Kingdom (1550-1070 B.C.), when foreign influence made certain letters vanish from the language. Egyptian scribes valiantly tried to reinstate them by adding extra letters to the ends of words, which led to much confusion. And still does.

If you want to get ahead or give yourself a headache then Egypt is the place to be. Egyptian Gods go in for cumbersome and elaborate headgear, and tend to stroll around with animal heads. Usually without the matching body. Along the Nile there are only so many animals to go round. So they do have to share, which causes much confusion.

    Well one could do well to read a Biography of Michaelangelo. Though famous for his work on the Sistine Chapel and his statue of David, what earned Michangelo big bucks were designs for elbaorate tombs for his patron Lorenzo De Medici and for Pope Julius II.. We are not talking about a statue or two & a bit of gold leaf, we are talking about dozens of statues and elaborate detailing!! Many elaborate tombs exist from this time period not only in Italy but also France and England. More care was taken for the Dead then the Living!!! Thus one can find a tie between the Renaissance and Ancient Egypt!! Aside from the burial of prominent rich people whose relatives could afford such elaborate trappings here are links and snippets snce for two at best ten points I do not quite wish to submit a two page essay capable of snagging an A from a snooty professor. Suffice to say though that burial customs truly have nit varied over the ages - - - people gather at the grave, prayers are said and the dead are stuffed in a hole in the ground. One important thig, Catholics feel that burning is bad and burial is good thus one finds few cremations in Europe even for the extremely poor who were forever dumped in mass graves even when it eventually polutted the water table. a snippet here but the article is lenthy http://www.gameo.org/encyclopedia/contents/B8485.html ""To bury the dead is a Christian custom, adopted from the Jews. Non Judeo-Christian religions usually cremated their dead. In the New Testament two burials are recorded. Ananias and Sapphira were carried to their grave by young members of the church (Acts 5:10), and Stephen (Acts 8:2) by "devout men." In the earliest Christian church burial was already a congregational affair. Tertullian and other church fathers relate that the churches took care of the burial of their poor, and that they had common burying grounds. The entire congregation participated in the religious rite. This participation was based on a regard for the body as the "organ of the spirit," and on the belief in the resurrection. Funeral sermons in the modern sense were unknown. The funeral procession, which took place by day, was to express the joy in overcoming death. The custom of throwing three shovelfuls of earth originated in the Middle Ages. The dedication of the corpse came at a much later period. By the mid-20th century cremation had been widely accepted, though the Catholic Church did not accept it and its priests were forbidden any participation in the procedure. In most Protestant churches it became optional; ministers could take partial or complete charge of cremation. Among European Mennonites it was also occasionally practiced, especially in the city churches; many country churches opposed it. Practices in Europe. From the beginning the Mennonites have buried their dead in accordance with local custom, and in common cemeteries. Several exceptions to this custom have been noted. Emil Egli (Die Züricher Täufer, 37) related that a Michel Meier helped his brother bury his wife in a meadow. Ernst Muller (Berner Täufer, 62) states that he heard a Mennonite in the Jura say they should not be compelled to bury their dead in the churchyard, but that each should be permitted to bury his dead on his own land. P. Burckhardt (Die Basler Täufer, 64) reports that the Mennonites preferred to bury their dead in a place of their own choosing. All of these are no doubt isolated cases. Where European Mennonites decided to lay out their own cemetery it was as a rule because the use of the common community burying ground was denied them or made very difficult. This is probably the reason for Preacher Risser s note in the church book of the Mennonites of Sembach: "Wherever several Mennonite families lived in a community, they had their own burial grounds." When the Mennonites buried their dead in common burying grounds, whether for Protestants or for all Christian creeds, their preachers delivered a sermon and at the conclusion thanked the authorities for the privilege of using the cemetery. (See "Friedhof" in Gem.-Kal. 1892, 93.) In 1541 the preachers Cantzenius and Erasmus submitted to the city council of Bern their opinion that it seemed doubtful to them, whether the Anabaptists who die in their error are saved, and whether they should not be separated in burial from other, ordinary Christians, as they (the Anabaptists) have separated themselves in life; whereupon the council replied that "they, the councilors, did not wish to interfere with God s judgment regarding the salvation of Anabaptists. Error is not always damned; we do not wish to separate their corpses from other believers, since other evil persons who are executed for their crimes, are buried at the upper almshouse" (Muller, Berner Täufer, 82 f.). On 5 June 1694 the council of Bern was again occupied with the question whether Mennonites should be buried in the churchyards with other Christians. "Honorable persons" had taken offense. The council answered that the right of burial could not be refused them, but that in the future their burials should be conducted without a funeral procession. But in the next year (27 February 1695) instructions were issued to officials that "Mennonites as excommunicated persons shall not be buried in a churchyard or other customary burying ground." In 1729 the Täuferkammer was asked for an opinion; it was divided. Some favored retaining the regulation of 1695, "because the plain man considers burial in a churchyard very important, and many might be frightened away from joining a sect which, as they can see, is segregated from the rest even after death." The others did not consider them less Christian than the Christian-minded, who were not denied the churchyard. Presumably the regulation of 1695 remained in force. In 1729 the cabinetmaker Lerch was compelled by the magistrate to bury his Mennonite sister in a remote spot on his little farm. Concerning Holland there is not much to report. When the period of persecution was over in Holland, the Mennonites were buried in the customary manner; i.e., the more important ones in the Reformed churches, e.g., Hans de Ries in the Grootekerk at Alkmaar in 1638, and the plain people in the cemeteries. It was done in this way until burial in the churches was forbidden. The Mennonites of Holland have never had their own cemeteries. During the 16th, 17th, and part of the 18th centuries no mourning service was held. The preachers were usually not present at the burial: the poor of the congregation (the so-called gealimenteerden) and those who had few or no relatives were conducted to the grave by the deacons. Only in the 19th century did the Mennonites adopt the practice of the Reformed Church, of having the pastor conduct the entire funeral service and give a talk at the home of the deceased or at the graveside. In the first half of the 20th century it became more and more customary in the rural congregations to hold a funeral service in the church before interment. In the Palatinate the Mennonites followed the same burial customs as the Lutherans and Reformed. They buried their dead unhesitatingly in the churchyard. The bells were rung, the school children accompanied the funeral train with singing, the Lutheran or Reformed parson gave the funeral address, or in his absence, the teacher read it. It continued so for 50 years after their settling there in 1664.""" http://www.abcgallery.com/M/michelangelo/michelangelo20.html http://www.trivia-library.com/c/unfinished-art-michelangelo-tomb-of-pope-julius-ii.htm """When Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo, 29, to build his papal tomb, the sculptor designed a two-story monument with a sarcophagus surrounded by bronze reliefs and 40 marble statues. A mountain of marble, quarried hundreds of miles away at Carrara, was transported by boat to Rome. The painter Raphael and his relative, the architect Bramante, envious of the glory this opportunity would bring Michelangelo, persuaded the pope that it was bad luck to prepare a tomb during one s own lifetime. They recommended that Michelangelo paint the huge vaulted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel (an impossible task for a sculptor, they thought). Work on the tomb was interrupted for four years while the sculptor completed the greatest single artistic achievement in the history of painting. Although Michelangelo made many attempts to complete the tomb, it remained unfinished at Julius s death, and his successors preempted Michelangelo s time and energy with other assignments. Forty years after beginning his great project, he had completed only a few statues, among them the 10-ft.-high Moses, called the greatest example of Renaissance sculpture. In 1545 Michelangelo, now 69, attempted to fulfill his obligation to Julius by improvising a small tomb, with Moses at the center, in the church of St. Peter in Chains in Rome. "" http://www.jointsoftime.org/galeries/journeies/northitaly/slides/Florence%20-%20Michelangelo s%20Grave.html " The Franciscan church of Santa Croce, dating to the 13th and 14th centuries, sits in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. Known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is famous for its gothic and Renaissance buildings. From 1300 to 1600, some of the greatest painters, sculptors, and writers in history lived and worked in Florence. The church is the tomb site of artist Michelangelo, as well as many other famous figures""" Peace.... // - - - - - O. v. O - - - - - - \\

    In the earliest times, the Egyptians buried their dead directly in the ground. Since Egypt''s climate was, and still is, a very arid environment, a body may have been very well preserved if it was buried in a particularly sandy or dry spot. Often the bodies would have been buried curled up in a fetal position and interred with a few simple pots or other goods.

    THE ROOTS OF EGYPTIAN civilization go back more than 6,000 years to the beginning of settled life along the banks of the Nile River. The country has an unusual geographical and cultural unity that has given the Egyptian people a strong sense of identity and a pride in their heritage as descendants of humankind's earliest civilized community.

    During this period, when people first began to settle along the banks of the Nile (Nahr an Nil) and to evolve from hunters and gatherers to settled, subsistence agriculturalists, Egypt developed the written language, religion, and institutions that made it the world's first organized society. Through pharaonic Egypt, Africa claims to be the cradle of one of the earliest and most spectacular civilizations of antiquity.
