An ancient Egyptian mummy was discovered in the National Historical and Cultural Center «Kiev-Pecherskaya Lavra».
According to the representatives of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, an amazing find was discovered in early 2017. During the reconciliation of the reserves of the Center, a mummy caught the eye of the archaeologists. In addition to the ancient relics, other entertaining exhibits were also found.
As experts say, these exhibits came to the territory of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra in the 19th century. These items were kept in different museums. At first, they were represented in the Church-Archaeological Museum, and then — in the Museum of Atheism. But for several decades, these unique exhibits were in the storage. It was there that they were discovered by the experts.
In addition to the two mummies, archaeologists have discovered several decorated sarcophagi and special containers for storing the internal organs of the deceased people.
