Shep en Mut

The ancient Egyptian mummy, coffin and cartonnage of Shep en-Mut were donated to the museum in 1897. The decoration and inscriptions show she was a married woman, and the daughter of NesAmenempit, who is described as a ‘carrier of the milk-jar’. The X-rays were taken in the 1960s as a way of learning more about Shep en-Mut. They confirm that she was an adult woman, about 20-50 years of age.
