Although long time has elapsed mummification methods used by Egyptians are not known exactly. In 1994, the total body of a 70 year-old man died of heart attack, was mummified by Ronald Wade (Maryland Medical School) and the egiptólogist Bob Brier (Long Iceland University.), following strictly that described by Heredotus in relation to possible Egyptian techniques. Brier prayed and placed Egyptian amulets to the interior of 9 kgs of fine white bandage.

Now, researchers from Zurich try to reconstruct with varied luck, Egyptian techniques. Frank Rühli (Anatomical Institute/U. of Zurich/Swiss/Mummy Project), mummified the legs of a woman recently deceased based on written descriptions of Heredotus (2500 years B.C.). For it he immersed a leg during 70 days, in 60 kgs of a mixture of salts, in order to dehydrating the leg. Unfortunately, 3 months later the mummification had not been completed: leg and foot were too rigid. Nevertheless the intention of Ruhli, is to see how it is modified the body after mummification, what happens to the DNA and how much the original morphology can be restored after rehydration.


Aunque parezca mentira aún no se conocen exactamente los métodos de momificación empleados por los egipcios. En 1994, el cuerpo total de un hombre de 70 años fallecido de ataque cardiaco, fué momificado por Ronald Wade (Maryland Medical School) y el egiptólogo Bob Brier (Long Iceland U.), siguiendo estrictamente lo descrito por Heredoto en relación a posibles técnicas egipcias. Brier recitó incluso oraciones y coloco amuletos egipcios al interior de de 9 kgs de fino vendaje blanco.

Ahora, investigadores de Zurich intentan reconstruir con variada suerte, las tecnicas egipcias. Frank Rühli (Anatomical Institute/U. of Zurich/Swiss Mummy Project), momifico las piernas de una mujer recientemente fallecida basándose en las descripciones de Heredoto (2500 años a.C.). Para ello embebió una pierna durante 70 dias, en 60 kilos de una mezcla de compuestos de sal, con el objeto de deshidratar el tejido. Desgraciadamente, 3 meses después la momificación no habia sido completada: pierna y pié estaban demasiado rigidos. No obstante la intención de Ruhli, es ver como se modifica el cuerpo despues de la momificación, que le sucede al DNA y cuanto de la morfologia original puede ser restaurada tras hidratarla.
