I believe that they also removed all the organs as well prior to mummification.

Egyptology isnt my field there is another members here with far greater knowledge then mine. But it was a long time ago when I was in Egypt and as I remembered we have one Student who study to become Egyptologist from Slovenia who told us that they used special vases for special organs. I dont know much about mummication process. Here are some of those vases from museum in Zagreb.

Just a guess ,but given the small boney holes they had to work with ,I'm betting instruments got stuck ,so they just left them there .

I would say its more likely than they forgot it .

The jars are called canopic jars. They were used to hold the mummified organs of the deceased. They were removed from the body due to the amount of water they retain. The body needs to be completely dried out for the preservation process to work.

I love to read about Egyptology and found this book very interesting !
