This mummy, of an adult male, has been on display at the British Museum since 1901. It is the earliest mummified body ever seen by the public.
It is part of a group of six naturally mummified bodies, known as Gebelein predynastic mummies, which have been carbon dated to approximately 3400 BC, which is about five and a half thousand years ago from now, belonging to the Late Predynastic period of Egypt, and were the first complete pre-dynastic bodies to be discovered.
