Ahmose-Tumerisy was a daughter of pharaoh Seqenenre Tao. She lived during the Abydos dynasty; approximately 1500 BC. This was the Second Intermediate Period of Egypt, which was a time of unease in Egypt due to conflict with foreign rulers.
The mummy was found in pit MMA 1019 in Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, which is on the West Bank at Thebes in Upper Egypt.
Ahmose-Tumerisy was found in a coffin in the ancient tombs of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna. Her organs were removed. During the era she lived in, the deceased were mummified using natron. Natron is a salt made of a mixture of sodium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, and sodium chloride. This salt removes the moisture and the fat from the body.
