The Egyptian Museum is to display the “screaming mummy” this week along two other artefacts, as a part of its plan to spotlight three artefacts each week that are preserved in storage or that have not been showcased before.
The mummy—found in what appears to be a constant scream of anguish—will be displayed with a golden mask and a colourful shroud.
Elham Salah, head of the museums sector at the Ministry of Antiquities, stated in a press release that the mummy has not been displayed before and it has been inside its coffin in the museum since it was placed in the building.
The mask and the shroud are also being displayed for the first time after Egypt received them from the United States in 2017.
The mummy belongs to a man that is believed to be the son of Ramesses III. Studying the mummy indicated that he died in his early twenties and may have died poisoned. He belongs to the family of the Twentieth Dynasty of Egypt, and his mummy was found covered in goat skin.
