Archaeologists Discovered Teenage Mummy Buried Ornamented With Exquisite Jewellery
The coffin of a teenage girl wearing expensive jewellery has been recently discovered in Draa Abul Naga necropolis near Luxor, Egypt. The interesting thing about the occupant of this 3500-year-old wooden coffin is that it was not a pharaoh or an important royal official, but a mysterious teenage girl adorned with precious jewellery.
The girl’s remains date to Egypt’s 17th dynasty, which lasted from 1580 to 1550 B.C. The scientists estimate that the young girl was between 15 and 16 years old when she died.
The beautiful ornaments of the teenage girl included earrings, two rings, and four necklaces. Though the body, which was covered in thin sheets, was too decomposed, but the ornaments were in unspoiled condition.
