The Penn's Baby Boy Mummy

The fine people "In the Artifact Lab" at the Penn Museum have presented here a beautiful mummy of a boy and the studies which have taken place by them and earlier researchers. The unwrapped mummy was probably less than 2 years old when he died and likely came from a family of some means suggested by his style of mummification.

He came to the Penn Museum Christmas ca.1898 as a donation.
