new study:"Embalming" in Egypt dates back to pre-Pharaonic times .. by 1500 years



Mummies have always been associated with pharaohs, but a recent analysis of an Egyptian body dating back to prehistoric times suggests that Egyptian embalming techniques preceded the Pharaohs' time by 1,500 years.

In August, an Egyptian scientist and researcher at the Department of Ancient History at Macquarie University in Australia, Jana Jones, and her colleagues published an analysis of an Egyptian corpse found in the Italian Museum in Turin, Italy, dating from 1901, dating from 3,700 to 3,500 years B.C.

The analysis suggests that the techniques of Egyptian embalming, which are always associated with pharaohs, date back to a thousand and five hundred years ago.

It was previously assumed that the man's corpse was naturally contracted due to the dry and hot desert sand, but now proved to have been deliberately preserved.

This shows that the ancient Egyptians who were at the same time as the man had died "had already known about the processes necessary to preserve the body, and practiced a sophisticated system of religious belief centered around life after death."
