The detection mask can be called a sensation.
Archaeologists in the excavation of the underground complex at Saqqara, an Egyptian, managed to find a workshop for the conduct of embalming and gilded silver mask.
Interesting mask covered the face of the mummy, lying in a poorly preserved wooden sarcophagus. As follows from the inscriptions on it, the mummy belongs to the priest who served the goddess Mut.
“The discovery of this mask can be called a sensation. Some masks made of precious metals have survived to the present day, because the tomb of the wealthy dignitaries were looted in antiquity,” — said the head of the research group from the University of Tubingen (Germany) Ramadan Badri Hussein.
Researchers, more importantly, found a workshop which performed the embalming, and where preserved vessels containing oil and other substances necessary for embalming. Also inside were two large pool, where, probably, dried up dead bodies.
