Book of the dead The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text, which was used from the start of the New Kingdom to around about 50 BCE. It wasn't actually a book, it was just a name for a bunch of different magical spells that was writen down in many different ways. Egyptologists find that most of the spells were to help the ancient Egyptian to safely reach their afterlife, they believe that afterlife was actually a real place and that those spells can help them get to that place. The book of the dead was putted between the mummies hand.

Weighing of the Heart Ancient egyptian believe that if someone did something bad in their life their heart will get heavier after they died, and they also belived that they will traveled to a heavenly place called 'afterlife' when they died. But to get to this place there's rule, they need to have a light heart, so that means they can't do anything bad in they whole intire life and for the opposite they need to do a lots of good things to keep their heart a light weight. To find out if their heart is heavy or not, they need to enter a place called 'the Hall of Maat' when they died. The god Anubis will then weigh their heart, if their heart is heavy then the god Anubis will suddenly appear and it them up. That's what the ancient Egyptian belives.
