[ May 5th 2005 ]

Egyptian archaeologists have unearthed an ancient mummy predating the 30th dynasty (378-341 BC) during excavations around the pyramids in Saqqara. According to Agence France-Presse, the beautifully wrapped body was adorned with multiple colours and graphic scenes depicting ancient Egyptian rituals and life.

"One such scene depicted the god Anubis preparing the dead for burial. Below there was a painting of the god Horus sitting in front of an altar and another of Horus' four children." AFP continues. "There is also a painting of a sun disc above Horus, and Ma'at, goddess of truth, right and order, is shown with her wings spread."

CT scanning technology will be used by archaeologists to discover more about the mummy, including its origins in a hope to yield more information on ancient Egyptian rituals and burial ceremonies.

Can you imagine when they do the same to the people who nowadays chose cryogeny? Although frozen heads in metal containers will probably be less interesting.

I read recently that a archaeologist uncovered a mummy, and aparently since the mummy has been unearthed, 6 deaths have happened, and the 6 people were connected to the finding of the mummy or something like that.
