In an exciting and amazing scientific discovery, scientists managed to reach the voice of the Egyptian Pharaonic mummy for the first time.
After 3 thousand years have passed since her death and mummification..
The sound is attributed to an Egyptian priest called “Nessiamon“, who was living during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses 11 BC..
The scientists deduced the sound of ” Nessiamon“, by printing a three-dimensional version of his acoustic channel.
The science team reconstructed the “Nessiamon” audio channel digitally, and then reproduced it through 3D printing..
Professor David Howard, head of the electronic engineering department at Royal Holloway, said that the sound that was monitored for “Nessiamon” was just before his death from inside his coffin.. “
If the death of ” Nessiamon“ theory ratified after the bite of an insect, his voice may be newly discovered made the last moments of his life, a” Oh! “Or” argh! “, But the team found that the pronunciation prism seemed like” eeuughhh “.
David Howard revealed that “the dimensions of Nessiamon‘s throat and his vocal paths, indicate that his voice will be a little louder than that of the common man today.”. “
The scientific team wrote that” the voice of “Nessiamon” had a decisive role in his work, as he had to speak or repeating hymns or sing as part of his role as a priest and incense holder and the clerk at the Temple of Karnak in Thebes They added
In the study as well, that “Nessiamon” was inscribed next to his name in his coffin the phrase “the truth of the voice”, which means that the gods of rule agreed to enjoy eternal life, after he made a confession before them that he had spent a good life in the world, according to the beliefs of the The Ancients Egyptians and many scientists stressed that “the new discovery, will contribute to providing a new way to deal with the past.
The Mummy “Nessiamon” is currently in the British city of Leeds Museum, scientists have suggested that the cause of his death either return to being strangled or insect amplitude.
Professor John Schofield, an archaeologist and co-author of the study at York University, explained that this exciting discovery may contribute to bringing more visitors to the museum or encourage them to make visits to the Karnak Temple in Luxor, Egypt.”.
He said:” The idea of going to the museum and get out of it, after hearing the voice of before 3000 years is a kind of experiences that people may remember for a long time”.
He pointed out that the new technology can be applied to other human remains preserved from the Iron Age.
