Uan Muhuggiag is the mummified body of a 3 year old Libyan child, discovered in the Wan Muhuggia cave. The child is believed to have belonged to cattle herders that resided in what is now Libya.


The mummy was discovered to be wrapped in goatskin, with its entrails replaced by wild herbs to aid in preservation. This technique was used by prehistoric Libyans around the time of 3600 BCE.

Studies Edit

Uan Muhuggiag was discovered and studied by Professor Mori at the University of Rome in Italy. The mummy is currently on display at the Assaraya Alhamra Museum. Previously scientists thought the earliest evidence for mummification in Africa comes from Egypt, but after Mori's discovery researchers now believe the African science of  mummification must have its origin elsewhere in Africa


The cause of death is unknown however researches believe it could have been caused contact with diseased animals that the cattle herders came in contact with.
