From the Book: Neti-Kerty and Shabaka ascended the steps leading to Thebes’s largest Per-Nefer chambers. The high-roofed building with its impressive pillared entrance, festooned with hieroglyphics honoring the gods, was divided into a series of chambers: where individual embalmers set about their work whilst training up the next generation of embalmers.
Their entrance was greeted by the familiar smell of burning spices: the smell originating from the lamps lighting the main chamber, all being filled with a herd infused oil. The smell, although overwhelming, could not completely dispel the stench of dead bodies.
