2,400-year-old Egyptian Mummy in Jaipur's Albert Hall Museum, saved from drowning

This corpse is of a woman named 'Tutu' and it was found in the Akhmin area of the ancient city of Panopolis in Egypt.

After an extensive span of 130 years, a 2,400-year-old Egyptian mummy preserved at the Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur, took a breather out of its box. Heavy rainfall had been plaguing the Pink City, which is why the streets along with the museum was flooded as well. Due to the surging water levels here, the mummy had to be transported to a safer site.


Mummy's Day Out

This mummy had been brought to Rajasthan from Cairo in Egypt, more than a 100 years ago and is considered to be a valuable addition to the museum till date. The authorities took immediate steps to save this mummy from drowning in the knee-length water which had seeped in here. It's glass cover was broken and the artefact was put in a safe place. Thus, this mummy was rescued from becoming history again.

This corpse is actually of a woman named 'Tutu' and it was found in the Akhmin area of the ancient city of Panopolis in Egypt. Back in the month of April in 2017, the mummy was relocated to the basement of the Albert Hall. All related details of the body's history, birth-death relationship, the method of its making and its X-ray, have been presented to the people here.

The head office of the Archaeological Department was also flooded with water, which caused their department files to be absolutely drenched. They are still being dried out in open spaces.

Troubled Waters

The Director of the Department of Archaeology and Museums under the Government of Rajasthan, also stated, "All files were drenched due to water rising up to five feet in the office. Office laptops, printers, computers and stationery have become unusable and non-functional. Hundreds of soaked files are being dried and tourist entry is closed for seven days. If conditions do not improve, it can be extended further."
