Mummification and Burial Edit
This mummy was impeccably preserved, despite his old age of 5000 years. It appears to be an young adult male, with curly golden hair. The teeth, hair and nails were all in fantastic shape. He was found in a fairly shallow grave surrounded by belongings. There were few factors in the abdominal region, and not many visible injuries otherwise. This has been suggested to be a deliberate murder. The sand it was buried in absorbed water and resulted in this extraordinary preservation.
This mummy dates back to the Late Predynastic age, 1500 years before more well known mummies such as King Tut. The position of the mummy was similar to the fetal position, which was common in this historical period.
