http://www2,500-year-old mummy found in what was thought to be an empty Egyptian coffin at Sydney University.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-26/mummy-found-in-what-was-thought-to-be-an-empty-coffin/9589110



When archaeologists lifted the lid on an Egyptian coffin that had been stored at Sydney University for 150 years, they got an enormous surprise.
They had no idea the 2,500-year-old coffin was filled with human remains.
Researchers are now using the latest scientific technology to piece together an ancient mystery.
"We are about to start a really detailed project to scientifically investigate these remains in the coffin and ask a whole bunch of questions, but really, 'Who is inside the coffin?'" investigation lead Dr Jamie Fraser said.


"A tomb robber has probably come in and rooted all the way through trying to find jewels and amulets," Dr Fraser said.
Hieroglyphics on the coffin show it was made for a priestess called Mer-Neith-it-es, but coffins don't always hold the remains they were intended for.
Often the mummies are discarded from their original coffin, although Egyptian antiquity sellers would put another mummy inside if a customer requested it.
'They're the remains of an adult of 30-plus'
As part of the effort to find out everything about the mystery mummy, the coffin and its contents were laser scanned to create 3D models, and then sent for a detailed CT scan.
Radiologist Professor John Magnussen said despite the remains being disturbed, there are still enough clues to solve part of the mystery.
"It's older, and it's got some early degenerative changes and the sacrum is fused, so we know it's definitely an adult," he said.
This was important news for the archaeologists.
"We know that Mer-Neith-it-es herself, this priestess for whom this coffin was made, was an adult," Dr Fraser said.
"And the joins in those bones say, yeah, they're the remains of an adult, and actually they're the remains of an adult of 30-plus."
