The new discoreved mummy is 2000 years old and it has a tongue made of gold. Egyptian Antiques Ministry announces that the people put that golden tongue in the mouth of dead person to make it talk afterlife. For example, if the golden tongue mummy encounters to the underground god Osiris, it needs to talk to him.  This is just a guess of course. Nobody knows the truth. At the same time, experts do not have the knowledge if the mummy can speak or not during his life.  Also, it is not clear why the tongue is golden. It is possible that embalmers might have pick the tongue accidentally while embalming. So they make a new tongue for dead person. Why gold? Do you have a guess? I guess they have used the most valuable material at that time. If this hypothesis is true, this can be a way of apology.

Kathleen Martinez from Dominican Republic leads dig in Taposiris Magna area. The dig team finds 15 other tombs around. There are lots of precious objects and statues.  The statues are covered very well, so you can clearly distinguish their hair style. Let’s have a look.

The dig and analysis of ruins continue. I cannot wait for news of it. Thank for reading 🙂

Hello dear readers. My name is Alexandra May and I am a 29 year old female from New York. Actually, I’m from Massachusetts. But, I live in NY. I’m a teacher at a high school. Yes, you have read right. I’m not an archeologist. I’m crazy about it. It is my favourite hobby. Meeting an old object under the ground and touching it many years and centuries later is a miracle. It is like you are talking to the past. I love Ancient Egypt Civilization the most. So, if I write about Egypt too much, please forgive me and keep reading. See you soon.
