Quinnipiac students got their hands on a mummified infant along with a woman’s mummified arm that was preserved more than 150 years ago. Scientist believe the infant is around 200 years old and was mummified soon after birth given the height of the body. Students were amazed by the technique of the mummification of the infant.
"It still has fingernails and toenails so the preservation is very good especially given the method." -Amel Langston, Quinnipiac Student
Quinnipiac's Bioanthropological Research Institute had the privilege to examine the specimen until it will be sent off to the Mutter Medical Museum in Philadelphia.
