Looking for a challenge? Join our expedition to explore an ancient Egyptian tomb.

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.
