Body Part Mummified With Egyptian Recipe





Swiss researchers have succeeded in mummifying a body part using the salty recipe of the ancient Egyptians.

One of the goals of the project is to find out how much the mummification process damages the DNA.

The experiment, which has been running for more than four months, takes inspiration from a 1994 study by Ronald Wade, director of Maryland's State Anatomical Board, and Bob Brier, one of the leading experts on mummies and Egyptology.

During that study, Brier and Wade replicated for the first time Egyptian mummification using the tools and procedures of the ancient embalmers.
