Mummy at Joseph Moore Museum - Earlham College __ "Ta'an was the daughter of an Egyptian priest. She was about 20 years old when she was buried sometime between 100 BC and 200 AD - about 2000 years ago. The hieroglyphics painted on her box have been translated to be kind of like an obituary. They explain who she was and what her connection with the gods was. The mummy was brought to the musuem by an old Earlham president who had taken a trip to Egypt. All we know is that he bought it from the Government Musuem in Cairo and that the mummy was supposedly found near the Nile River. We took the mummy to Reid Memorial Hospital and had her x-rayed. We then learned that her joints showed little use and she had probably been an invalid for her most of her life." - You can learn more about her and her history plus find out where the other two mummies in Indiana are located. - illustrated - From Waynet Inc. - http://www.waynet.org/waynet/spotlight/2002/020121-earlham-mummy.htm
