Mummy in the Attic

A ten year old boy in Diepholz Germany went up to his grandparents attic recently and uncovered an elaborate Egyptian mummy in a clearly fake sarcophagus. X-rays of the mummy reveal a skull and bones including an arrow in one of its eye sockets.

In a separate box was found the mummy's very interesting mask and the bandages on the mummy are also of modern mechanically woven material. For myself I am comfortable that the mummy and its equipment was probably made as a play or movie prop in the last century but is it a real mummy underneath?

Here an article on the X-ray results on the mummy!
