Abstract:
It is only through the dissection or dismantling of a mummy that the textiles used in its wrapping can be fully accessed and studied; such projects while never that common place are now, in the light of new non-invasive investigative techniques, virtually unheard of. The disection of the mummy '1770' in June 1975 by The Manchester Museum Mummy Team created a rare opportunity to study a group of wrappings. At the time of the dissection the textiles did not feature prominently in the interests ot the research team and the wrappings received only minimal attention - they were, however, carefully stored and retained in the collections of The Manchester Museum. The resulting availability and the vutually unexploited and arguably unique textile research opportunity offered by this group of wrappings is capitalised on in this thesis.
