I spent about thirty minutes browsing this site. I thought that it was very
informative and interesting. The pictures definitely helped to give this site
some vividness. I thought that most everything that this site discussed was an
important part of the Egyptian burial process, and that little time was wasted
on menial facts. According to my learning, the information of this site seemed
to be accurate and in line.

Technical Remarks:

I thought that this site was fairly easy to manage. Although, all of those links
started to get a little aggrevating. It seemed like every link had another
link. Other than that, the site seemed well orchestrated.

mummification process and it's role in egyptian religion.

I found this website really interesting. I really liked how over the computer a
view could look at art work that are in museams all over the world. Although
this does not replace actually going to a musem it allows people to view things
that they might never get the chance to see in person. I clicked on collections
and exhibits and then explored ancient egyptian art. I really enjoyed looking at
all the different pictures of ancient mummy coffins. I liked how next to every
picture they gave a description of the piece along with a little bit of
information.

Technical Remarks:

This site was very easy to navigate. The only problem I had was trying to figure
out what to look up first. I found that all the graphics and text appeared
quickly after the site was finished downloading.
