Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD 47 Autopsy seeks data from mummy Autopsy on mummy TORONTO (CP) Scien- tists performed an autopsy Friday on a Egyptian mummy. The mummy of a man nam- ed Nakht is the property of the Royal Ontario Museum. Offi- cials said the purpose of the autopsy is to try to determine the evolution of modern dis- eases. "Tests so far conducted in- dicate that Nakht died before he was said Dr. Nicholas B. Millet, head of the Egyp- tian department at the museum. "Our biographical informa- tion shows that he did not be- long to a class wealthy enough to have been normally able to afford even the simple funeral trappings he fact which is still somewhat of a mystery to us." Officials said the body still had all its unusual point in mummification. The brain and other organs are usually removed before the body is wrapped. Dr. Gerald D. Hart, director of hematology at Toronto East General Hospital and co- ordinator of the autopsy team, stressed that the autopsy was a scientific endeavor and that the main objective was to gain information on diseases in an- cient times and their implica- tion on modern man. "This is not an exercise in he said. "The body has been treated with the greatest respect and our fin- dings will be used as a major teaching source for a wide number of scientific dis- ciplines."
