Scientists have managed to ‘hear’ the voice of an Egyptian mummy

Over the decades, mankind has discovered ancient mummies buried.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of photos from their time, we don’t really know what they would look like if they were alive.

However, science and technology have managed to roughly create their images based on their skeletal structures.

Now it seems that not only is it known how they can look, but also how they may sound.

This is thanks to the work of researchers who have managed to artificially reconstruct the “voice” of a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy.

Known as Nesyamun, he is a priest who lived in the time of Pharaoh Rameses XI.

Scientists achieved this by creating a digital reconstruction of the mummy’s vocal tract and then printing it in 3D.

According to Prof David Howard, head of the department of electronic engineering at Royal Holloway, University of London: “What we have done is create Nesyamun’s voice while he is in his sarcophagus. Not a sound from any of his speeches, as he is not currently speaking. “

While perhaps not exactly the most meticulous creation, it is still an interesting technique that can be applied to future findings as well.
