| Naperville Mummy |
|Date(s)||51 to 30 B.C.|
|Location||Naperville Central High School, Illinois|
The mummy was then restored at the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute and is now in the custody of the high school humanities teachers.
Scans done in 1994 led to a conclusion that the mummy was a male and died about age 8, the mummy was nicknamed Butch by the students and staff. In 2002 the mummy was partially unwrapped by experts for the extraction of a sample for DNA testing, it was re-wrapped and restored to its former appearance. Radiocarbon and DNA testing determined the earlier conclusion was erroneous, the mummy was an Egyptian female from the Ptolemaic period.
Believed to be the only mummy held by a public high school.
