| Amenrenef |
Amenrenef was discovered by Spanish archaeologists in Egypt near Luxor near a temple that housed King Thutman III tomb as well. Amenrenef is discovered to be a nobleman from the royal household during the ancient times as detected from various intricate designs and symbols of goddesses on its coffin. From wonderful craftsmanship of the royal workers, the mummy has been well-preserved for thousands of years
The mummy has been found wrapped in linen and plaster then placed in a wooden sarcophagus which has been decorated with special images of goddesses Isis and Nephtys that display their wings alongside the four sons of Horus. Amenrenef appears to follow regular mummification process as other Egyptian mummies in which the body is embalmed, organs are removed along with other bodily fluids so that the body is preserved.
Since the tomb was found near the temple that King Thutman III had built, identifying Amenrenef's identity. Also, different dating techniques have been used to date its approximate age. No other studies have been found.
No specific marks or injuries have been found on the mummy to indicate any direct cause for death. The cause of death is still unknown; however, since the age of the individual is approximately 3000 years old, reason for death seems to be of natural occurrences.
