An excavation team finds artefacts dating back to the fifth and sixth dynasties of the Old Kingdom, spanning from roughly 2500 BC to 2100 BC.
Zahi Hawass, an archaeologist who has been in the field for decades, has announced that he may have discovered the mummy of famed queen Nefertiti of Ancient Egypt.
Researchers in Egypt use CT scanning technology to digitally unwrap the second pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, Amenhotep I’s mummy without disturbing its beautifully decorated exterior.
The mummy is believed to exhibit the funerary rites of a culture that inhabited the pre-Inca Cajamarquilla archaeological site.
Two Egyptian discoveries were unveiled by a French-led mission in the northern area of Al Asasef.
Archaeologists are hoping the mummification workshop will provide fresh insight into the chemical make-up of the oils used by ancient Egyptians to mummify their dead.
Researchers have combined CT scanning with 3D scans of the surface of a nearly 2,000-year-old mummy of a young girl to create an exact digital copy.
The mummy, excavated in 1956, was reburied due to a state commission ruling which critics say was the result of cultural superstitions.
