Recent research has shown the first mummified remains to be found in the Nile Valley date from 3500 BC rather than 3000 BC as previously thought.
Renée Friedman, British Museum, shares her research on the origins of the mummification process, the relationship between natural and artificial mummification, and how this informs our view of a process so ingrained in popular understanding of the ancient Egyptians.
