BiographyEdit

The Valley of the Kings mummy was found in a wooden sarcophagus in a small tomb in the Valley of the Kings within Egypt. This means that he could have been a servent to a king during his life, but it is still unknown.

MummificationEdit

The body was preserved in wraps around the body and placed in a sarcophagus in a tomb underground, in the belief that it would continue to the afterlife.

StudiesEdit

The head of the Spanish team of archeologists that found this mummy in November of 2016, Myriam Seco Alvarez, noted that the sarcophagus of this mummy was decorated with religious symbols from Ancient Egypt, which is what many high status mummies were decorated with at the time.

PathologyEdit

This mummy is believed to be older than 2500 years old, as it was found in a location where many mummys and kings of the time were entombed.
