Mummy of an adult man. The mummy is in poor condition; among the disordered bandages are the remains of a collar and pectoral. The feet are missing.
Skull - The head (rotated to the right) is detached from the body in the region of the lower cervical spine. The mouth is closed, but several teeth are missing from the upper jaw.
Thorax and Abdomen - Filled with some granular material which largely obscures the vertebral column. The thoracic cage is represented by a collection of disjointed and fractured ribs. Circumcised.
Pelvis - The bones are dislocated and numerous fractures are present.
Arms - Extended. There is a transverse fracture of the right ulna, and both hands are detached at the wrists. The palms of the detached hands (fingers extended) rest upon the antero-medial aspect of the thighs.
Legs - There is a transverse fracture, lower third shaft of the right femur. On the left side there is a transverse fracture mid shaft of the femur, also a fracture of the left hip. There are fractures of the lower end and of the neck of the right fibula. The feet have been detached at the ankle joints and are missing.
All fractures and dislocations are no doubt all post mortem.
