ARCHAEOLOGISTS FROM THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND ANTIQUITIES HAVE UNCOVERED GOLDEN TONGUED MUMMIES DURING EXCAVATIONS IN THE MENOUFIA GOVERNORATE, EGYPT.

The discovery was made during an extension of the research area at the Quweisna necropolis, a burial site that contains hundreds of tombs from different periods in Egypt’s history.

Excavations revealed a number of mummies, some of which have a golden tongue or amulet placed in the deceased’s mouth. Such a practice was intended to ensure that the dead would be able to communicate in the afterlife and speak before the court of the Ancient Egyptian god, Osiris.
