Mummies under the magnifying glass

Interdisciplinary team at the University of Jena, Germany conducts further provenance research on items from its own collections. This has led to new findings on the mummy fragments and in particular on the textiles with which the mummies were wrapped or clothed. However, it also shows how difficult provenance research is when there is a lack of information.
