A bag-style tunic found on the Manchester Museum mummy 1770
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

In June 1975 a rare opportunity to study a group of ancient Egyptian mummy wrappings was created when The Manchester Museum Mummy Team, led by Rosalie David, undertook the dissection of a mummy in the Manchester Museum collection known as ‘1770’. At the time of the dissection the study of the textiles from this mummy did not feature prominently in the interests of the research team and the wrappings received only minimal attention. The wrappings were, however, carefully stored and retained in the collections of the Manchester Museum; recently these wrappings have been revisited and studied in detail. As a result of this recent work among the 190 units of ‘1770’ textiles recorded and retained by the original research team a largely complete garment was identified. This garment – a simple bag style tunic – will be described and discussed in detail in this paper.
