He was taking out mummies from their sarcophagi, was unwrapping them and was unveiling some interesting facts. It was then that he found an unusual burial box.
A burial box that was plain and would not look like that of kings and queens of that time. This was the most unusual box that he had ever discovered. He went ahead curiously to uncover it. To his surprise, a body was uncovered in sheepskin that was impure according to the studies.
Moreover, the studies suggest that ancient Egypt considered the sheep’s skin to be unclean. The body was wrapped in a way that its hand and feet were bound, the reasons remain unspeakable!
