Bologna Mummy Project
- Project duration: January 2020 - December 2022
- Project status: ongoing
- Funding: Internal funding EURAC (Project)
- Total project budget: €130,000.00
The “Bologna mummy project” has started thank to the collaboration with the Museo Civico Archeologico of Bologna (Italy), that houses inedited Egyptian mummies of unknown provenience and dating. From a very preliminary survey, it appeared that the mummies were not visible to the public, perhaps since the 1970’s, and that their actual presence and state of preservation were unknown. Thus, in 2020, we started an interdisciplinary project (conservation, geochemistry, anthropology/paleopathology and genetics), that aims to: i.evaluate the mummies' state of conservation for securing them, ii.to reconstruct their biological (sex, age at death, stature) and paleopathological profiles. iii.to sample the bone and soft tissues for radiocarbon dating (14C) and iv. perform possible genetic (aDNA) analyses. The obtain data will be presented in international conferences, scientific journals and, possibily, in future temporary exhibitions.
