Mummy of Djedhor

From the exhibit:

"CAT scan of the mummy shows that the skeleton, that of an adult man, is in good condition. The arms are crossed on the breast. Damage to the nasal area is visible, indicating that the brain was removed through this orifice. Solidified fluid, probably resin, lies in the back of the skull, and artificial eyes are visible in the orbits. The chest and abdominal cavities appear empty, but an object - perhaps a rolled papyrus - lies between the legs."
