Egyptian tomb adventure Please note that unfortunately there is an error in this game. The part of the game that looks at canopic jars incorrectly states that in an Egyptian burial the jar in the form of the human-headed god Imsety contains the lungs and the jar in the form of the baboon-headed god Hapy contains the liver. However, Imsety should contain the liver and Hapy the lungs. If you like this you may also like... The Three Pyramids Can you prepare our high priest for the afterlife before the sun rises?

A soothsayer then came to the home of the newly born child to study the astrological significance of the child's birth, down to the exact day and minute of the child's entrance into the world.
