In ancient Egypt, while embalming and preparing a body for the afterlife, the human organs were put in, what is called, canopic jars. There were 4 different jars, each for different human organs: the stomach, intestines, lungs, and liver. There was no jar for the heart: it was believed to be the seat of the soul, and was left inside the body.
