    In 2003, it was cited that:

    “An Egyptian team unearthed the oldest mummy in Sakkara last week. The 5,000-year-old corpse is an example of the first attempts at mummification, dating back to the First Dynasty in 3200 BC, the first year in the reign of King Hor Aga.”


    “The earliest known Egyptian mummy , nicknamed ‘Ginger‘ for its hair colour, dates back to approximately 3300 BC. Currently on display in the British Museum, Ginger was discovered buried in hot desert sand. Desert conditions can naturally preserve bodies so it is uncertain whether the mummification was intentional or not. “
