About this object

One of fifteen bundles of bandages from the mummified body of Ditamunpaseneb, daughter of Yufa, unwrapped on 30th March 1903 by the museum's director before an audience. Cuttings of the bandages were given out and some were 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 mummfied body is unlocated.

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