Nesperennub at the Exploreum

I am sure that most readers have seen all the articles about the mummy Nesperennub, but for anyone new visitors, there's a summary of the Mummy: The Inside Story exhibition currently hosted at the Exploreum in Mobile (U.S.): "See the dates on the displays and you might wonder how many hundreds of generations of people have lived and died between now and the years 1069-747 B.C.It was sometime during this era that Nesperennub lived in Egypt, working at a complex of temples that covered 50 football fields. Here we are in the year 2006, so sure of our expertise and proud of our modern ways, but even 1,000 years before Christ, the Egyptians had developed valuable skills. Their knack for embalming made Nesperennub one of the best preserved bodies in history."
