    Scientists carry out tests on ancient Egyptian 'embalming recipe' mummy

Dating to around 3,700-3,500 BC, the mummy is currently housed in the Egyptian Museum in Turin, Italy. “It is the first time that extensive tests have been carried out on an intact prehistoric mummy, consolidating the researchers’ previous findings that embalming was taking place 1,500 years earlier than previously accepted,” the study said.
