Mummy Gets Her Name

Here we have the Perth Museums mummy acquired by the museum in 1936 and believed to come from ancient Egypt's 25th-26th dynasties. The lady named on the lid has the name of Takherheb and is in very nice condition.

The mummy and coffin are being studied by researchers from the University of Manchester with the hope of learning more about the lady possibly from Akhmim as the coffin has been determined to likely be from.

The kind people at Perth sent this wonderful link.
