1Mystery on Mummy solved!!! Empty Mystery on Mummy solved!!! on Thu Oct 01, 2009 11:22 am


The mysterious death of an ancient Egyptian woman, whose mummy became a public spectacle in Georgian Britain, has been solved by a team of researchers in London.Forensic analysis of tissues taken from the 2,600-year-old corpse has revealed signs of tuberculosis, a disease that was widespread in Egypt. The mummy of Irtyersenu, or “lady of the house”, became the first to go under the surgeon’ s knife in a postmortem in 1825, when England was in the grip of mummy mania. The remains were unveiled to a large crowd in a macabre lecture by Dr Augustus Granville who lit the room at the Royal Society with candles made from wax scraped from the shrivelled corpse. The examination revealed that Irtyersenu “had very considerable dimensions”, was around 50 years old when she died, and had had several children.
