Mummification occurs in a dry environment, typically such dry outside environments as a desert, or in heated indoor environments during the winter months when the relative humidity is low. Initially, there is a dark- ening and hardening of the skin. This will progress to produce flaking of the surface of the skin that can give extremities the appearance of a log. As with putrefaction, the skin will begin to split and eventually the skin and soft tissues under the skin are also lost.
