Topic-icon World's first Egyptian mummified pregnant woman with 7-month fetus remains




A team of Polish scientists at the Warsaw Mummy ทางเข้าเล่น slotxo Project discovered an Egyptian mummy of a pregnant woman with a fetus still lingering in the womb. Older than 2,100 years, it is the world's first discovery of this kind of mummy.

A team of researchers using computed tomography, or CT scans, examined the artifacts at the Warsaw National Museum. discovered the mummy by accident Inside the sarcophagus, there was an inscription indicating that the figure inside belonged to a male priest.


“The scans that came out surprised us. First of all, this mummy has no penis. but with breasts and shoulder-length wavy hair. Moreover We were shocked to see the little hands and feet of a baby in the womb.” Dr. Marcina Ozarek-Zilke. said the research team's archaeologists and anthropologists.

Radiologists use computed tomography to aid archaeology.

A report published in The Journal of Archaeological Science suggests the mummy was likely a noble woman who died in her 20s and 30s, sometime around 100 BC. It is considered the world's only pregnant Egyptian mummy at the moment.

When examining the length of the circumference measured from the baby's head It is estimated that the fetus is 26-30 weeks old, but scientists still do not know exactly what caused the death of the mother and child.

Another surprising thing is that Mummies don't take babies out of the womb. To bathe and wrap like other organs of the deceased according to the normal mummification process. This may be that the surgical removal is too difficult. Or it could be a spiritual belief about the afterlife.

The body of a "mysterious woman" has been mummified with intricate craftsmanship. So it was possible that she was a noble woman.

The Polish research team called the mummy "The Mysterious Lady" because the information about her origin has confused archaeologists.

Her body was donated to the University of Warsaw in 1826, where donors claim the mummy was unearthed at the royal tomb in the Egyptian city of Luxor. But experts consider the testimony to be unreliable. Because in the 19th century antique dealers often made such claims to add value to their products.

Even the inscription next to the coffin states that Inside the mummy was a male priest named Hor-Djehuti. But the researchers speculated that the body of the "mysterious woman" was carried by a 19th-century antique dealer in a coffin that didn't belong to her. This was a common practice in antiquities theft movements at that time.

There were several "Four Sons of Horus" amulets under the bandage of a pregnant mummy.

The researchers have yet to remove the bandage or operate on the "mysterious woman"'s body to examine its internal organs. But assessed from the scanned image and found that Her body was mummified with intricate craftsmanship. and still in good condition with only traces of damage on the corpse bandage around his neck. It is assumed that this trace was caused by someone trying to steal valuables attached to the mummy. such as jewelry and amulets under the corpse that scans indicate there are at least 15 of them.
