Luxor – Muhammad Mahrous:
Egyptologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass said that the archaeological discovery and announcement by Polish scientists that they had found a “pregnant Pharaonic mummy” was very normal.
The Egyptologist revealed a surprise in the incident of finding the pregnant mummy, which was taken care of by social media and attracted the attention of observers, as Hawass confirmed that it is not the first case of a pregnant Egyptian mummy.
Hawass revealed that the first and oldest case of a “pregnant mummy” was a skeleton of a “dwarf” in the tombs of workers builders of the pyramids, dating back to 4,600 years, explaining that this discovery was in 2010.
He added: “We discovered this mummy in the workers’ graves and it was at that time the first case of its kind, and therefore the discovery announced by Polish scientists is not new to us.
