About this object

1 of 15 bundles of bandages from the mummy of Ditamunpaseneb, daughter of Yufa. The mummy was unwrapped on 30th March 1903 by the museum's director before an audience. Cuttings of the bandages were given out and one was returned to the museum by donation in 1987 (accession number 1987.75). Each bundle was tied with string and pinned with a number ticket. At least three of the rolls have inscriptions on the wrappings. The mummy is unlocated (but probably is the mummy 1967.1).

Presented by the 8th Earl of Denbigh and 7th Earl of Desmond - the donation included inner and outer coffins and a mummy - and some other items including a stela and scarab.
