The Leeds Mummy.
In the 1941 bombing raids, two other mummies were destroyed, but Nesyamun’s 3000-year-old mummy survived. It is displayed in the current museum building, alongside a rather striking reconstruction of his face.
You’re not allowed to take photos of the mummy but i asked a very nice curator who said i could if i didnt use a flash! Thanks
