History 101 with Mister Bones: Episode 2: Ancient Egypt
WARNING! You just might learn something if you keep reading! Oh, and there is some coarse language ahead as well.
About this creation





Wow, Mister Bones really can’t sing.









“Here we are ladies and gentlemen in the Valley of the Kings! This is the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom period which lasted from 1570 BCE to 1070 BCE. The tomb behind us belongs to an important official from the court of Thutmose II.”

“Before we go in to have a look at the mummy, let me explain briefly about the mummification process, mainly because our sponsors demand we have some sort of educational value to these shows.”

“The mummification process was basically preserving the body. The chap in charge of the mummification was known as a Hery Seshta, or Overseer of the Mysteries. The assistant was called the Hetemw Netjer, Seal bearer of the God, the Hery Heb was the Priest and the Wetyw were the bandagers, the lucky chaps who got to eviscerate the body.”

“The actual process involved taking the body to a tent called the Ibw or Palace of Purification, where it would be washed in a solution of natron, then the body was taken to another tent called the Per Nefer or House of Beauty where the actual mummification occurred.”

“All of the viscera, internal organs to those of you not up on your terminology, were then removed and dried, rinsed, bandaged and placed in canopic jars.”

“Remember those jars that the mummy was after in the movies? Well, after the...Oh enough damn it! This is taking forever! They ripped out his organs, preserved them, preserved the corpse, wrapped him up in an ace bandage and shoved him in a fancy casket, ok? Let’s go check out the Goddamn mummy!”

“Hey, look, a curse is on the pillar…whoa, wouldn’t want to fall in there!”

“Odd, the lights went out, must be an eclipse. Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the sarcophagus of Mumhotep I, an unknown official in Egyptian history, unknown because I just made up the name, I have no idea whose coffin this is.”

“HOLY $H!T ON A SHINGLE!! That mummy is alive!!”

“RUN! GET BACK TO THE TIME MACHINE!”

“The tomb is collapsing! RUN YOU IDIOT, RUN!!

“Holy poopsicle! Undead priests! Who was this guy?”

“ EW, bugs…OOOFF! “Help! Stupid cameraman, get back here and help me you coward! They are ripping off my leg!”**Sounds of fighting**

“I took out your undead buddies and I can kick your mummy arse as well!”








Dem Notes: All of us here at Dem Bones, well, except for Spooky Bones, wish to apologize for this month’s episode of History 101 with Mister Bones. The mummification process is a fascinating subject and our loyal viewers can find out more on mummification and Ancient Egypt at the following Egypt online site.

Quoting El Barto ! This is some wicked stuff here, Dude! I was just watching a bit on Youtube from History of the World Part 1, the Eunuch Test scene. That would be a cool episode...
Eunuch Test huh? We could use Matt Bunny David for that episode!

Ouch. This MOC packs a bit of a sting. That must be the feeling of witnessing a great build. Wait, it could also be realizing how much time I just spent reading it. I'm starting to resent this series. With some story rich MOCs, I take the liberty to just flip through the pics (no jokes about magazines here, please), but I can't seem to do that with these. Oh well, resentfully looking forward to the next installment.

Quoting Stuart Delahay Great job once again Mr. B, and again my jealousy of your old Johnny Thunder sets knows no bounds. Got my daily dose of education and laughs in. You do take a battering for the sake of history though, but at least when you explore the middle ages you can wear some armour!
Oh yeah, I have a feeling ol Bones will get is Dark Ages bootie handed to him in the next episode. Thanks!

Quoting Architect of Vonthako Haha - great as usual, Bones! I even turned on "Tutankhamen" by Nightwish while viewing that (for added effect). The UV scenes and the escape sequence were awesome. Where did you get that cool scepter? Oh, and I think you should have named the made-up official "Bastanut", for kicks and giggles.
Thanks. The one Bones is holding is from the one megablocks set I own, it had a giant Anubis, and I love Anubis. The statue is on my desy, I threw the minifigs away. The other weapon is brickforge.

Quoting Dennis Price Holy Poopsickle! There goes my latest plot idea for Glomshire Knights . . . oh wait, I forgot. There is no plot to Glomshire Knights. Nice work -- canopic jars are some of my favorite crockery, although you really have to wash them well before storing jams or jellies in them. Great job overall, as others have said, and nice use of humor. What I don't understand is why Mr. Bones didn't just clean the undead priest's clock.
Thanks! Bones did take out the priests, but the mummy got him in the end, sort of hard to tell in the moc...need to work on that aspect.

Quoting Chris Phipson I'm not going to make jokes or drop smack. You actually did a VERY cool thing here by hiding learning in with fun build and story. If only 5 kids (or adults for that matter) learned something from this post, it was worth it. Hats off to you sir. ~Chris.
Well thank you very much Sir! There is only so much real fact one can cram into a moc without boring the reader, but i am glad some liked it.

Quoting leda Kat Sweet work! Love the scorpion scene. Great humour again. The build is really impressive and the camera work is very nice. Like your water feature, I need more of those little trans round studs to utilise that effect more myself. Will see what Toto can find in the graveyard with regards to Bones' new leg.
Thanks, I saw Toto got me a new leg and a new head, nice doggie.

Quoting Scott Aldridge Back with more learning! I love Ancient Egypt, so I love this MOC. Also, where'd you get Egyptian headgear? They look awesome. :P
Thanks Scott! The headgear is from the old Johnny Thunder Egypt sets. Actually, most of the stuff in this moc is from those sets. @ Matt: Can not do vikings as I never bought any of the sets, sorry. After Rome will be a trip to the Dark Ages!

Quoting Lite . Nice. Although you missed some stuff. The mummifacation process took about 10 months to complete. Because they would put the body in salt for a long time (about 9 months). And when that was done. They would take these tweezer thengs and pull the organs out through the nose. And yes. They put them in a jar. Wrapped the mummy in bandages. But what you missed was that they put jewels in between the layers of bandages. That's why there were so many Grave Robberies. And the jewels acted as a "curse propelant". Sortta like bug spray. Except a paranormal style. But ya. Over all I give this a B. Or to make it simple. 4/5. I liked it though.
Thank you, I was a History major in college, I am well aware of the steps involved, however, in a MOC I was not going to recite the entire process. By the way, they only removed the brain via the nose, the other organs were removed from a small incision in the side. Thanks again for the comment.
