Amanda Duvall's curator insight, October 15, 2013 7:04 PM

 

 

The article is about a baby boy mummy. The boy was about two years old. The people studying him are wondering how he died. They took X-rays and found a hole on the top of his skull. It gives them a clue what happened to him. They also found green under his left eye and hands. They wonder what it is. His clothes are faded mostly ever where and his insides are missing. I have been looking at the picture of him and his eyes are closed. He aslo is lying flat down as if he was sleeping when he died.
