Archaeologists have discovered in Egypt the funerary chamber of the princess XIII dynasty. It was 600 meters from the recently found pyramid of Pharaoh Emnikamau in Dahshur, a necropolis located 26 km south of Cairo. The building was dated to the XVII century. BC.
In the burial chamber was found a wooden box with three lines of hieroglyphs. Probably, there were canopies in it – vessels, in which the bodies of the deceased were folded.
The canopies in the box, for unknown reasons, were missing, but their contents – liver, intestines, stomach and lungs – were preserved. The organs were wrapped in cloth. According to the researchers, they belonged to the daughter of Pharaoh Emnikamau. Next to the box is a sarcophagus, however, in order to open it and not damage it, it takes time, because it is in poor condition.
