A team of Polish scientists have revealed the only known example of an embalmed pregnant Egyptian mummy.

 

The discovery was made by researchers at the Warsaw Mummy Project and revealed in the Journal of Archaeological Science on Thursday.

 

The project, started in 2015, uses technology to examine artefacts housed at the National Museum in Warsaw.

 

The mummy was previously thought to be a male priest but scans reveal it was a woman in the later stages of pregnancy.

 

Experts from the project believe the remains are most likely of a high-status woman, aged between 20 and 30, who died during the 1st Century BC.

 

"Presented here is the only known example of a mummified pregnant woman and the first radiological images of such a foetus," they wrote in the journal article announcing the find.

 

Using the foetus head circumference, they estimate it was between 26 and 30 weeks when the mother died for unknown reasons. 😭
