Mummification

She was aged early/mid 20s.

Placement of arms over pubic area would indicate non-royal descent. Imperfect mummification process with brain matter, spleen, and liver found in body. Varying types of linens used for wrappings, not only fine linens.

Her high status was extrapolated from Henna-polished and well-manicured fingernails and abundant soft tissue - she was not lean.

Pathology

She was found to have suffered from a curvature of the spine.
