| Hibbard Mummy |
|Date(s)||1st c AD|
The mummy, about 1,800 years old and weighs 50 pounds. Wires, the nature of which are unknown, were found in her teeth, but one researcher suggests these might be modern pins, rather than ancient artefacts. And a small, unidentified object had been wrapped to her stomach.
In 2017, the mummy became the first to be examined using synchrotron X-rays.
Researchers do not know how the girl died, but since there were no signs of trauma on the remains, speculation has it she likely succumbed to disease.
Researchers believe the girl was wrapped in the linen unclothed and was probably not wearing anything when she was prepared for mummification.
