WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?

 

Who were they?

Who were they?

These people were noble members of the royal family, victims of bloody rituals or defeated enemies. Mummies that were created naturally are a special category.  Those are common people who, at the time of their death, were situated in ideal natural conditions allowing their bodies to mummify.

 

How were they created?

How were they created?

In ancient Egypt, mummification was a special field of science, In Peru and other parts of America they were able to use local natural conditions to preserve the bodies of the deceased, and in Europe very specific conditions in underground crypts with the pitch of wooden coffins were sufficient enough to preserve dead bodies. A separate but specific category are people or animals stuck in peat bogs, in which the bodies mummified thanks to the specific natural conditions.

 

What can we learn from them?

What can we learn from them?

Current scientific techniques using forensic methods and the latest technologies such as DNA analysis etc. provide unexpected information about mummies. We do not only learn about the injuries seen on their bones, but also about their diet, what diseases they suffered, what kind of family relationships they kept and last but not least where they migrated to and from. It is a unique insight into a world that vanished long time ago and whose echoes in the form of a genetic fund or even deadly bacteria affect our lives today.
