CAIRO - 8 May 2021: Upon an invitation from the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, Mr. Momen Osman, Head of the Museum Sector at the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, via zoom application, gave a lecture on the scientific examinations of the mummies of a woman called "Nespahtwi" from the 22 dynasty of the late age using X-rays during the symposium organized by the university under the title "Advanced And Non-destructive Methods used in the study of mummies" attended by a number of university professors. 
During the lecture, Mr. Momen Osman stressed that the purpose of examining this mummy is to identify the undying methods of studying the coffin and mummy and to obtain the best explanation for the mummy's condition, in addition to trying to date her age and knowing the cause of death.
He noted that the examination showed that the mummy was between the ages of 22 and 25 and that she had died during childbirth, since a small coffin was found between the legs, likely to be a fetus or a newborn child. 
Mr. Momen Osman also presented the different categories of mummies inside the Egyptian Museum in tahrir and also explained the strategies for examining wrapped Egyptian mummies, and explained how to strategically plan their ongoing maintenance. 
At the end of the lecture, Dr. Frank Rowley, Professor at the University of Zurich, thanked Mr. Momen Osman for his wonderful presentation and useful scientific information and facts for archaeological work.
