TOKYO (AFP) - A Japanese research team has found "a perfect mummy" in an unrobbed Egyptian tomb believed to be more than 3,500 years old, the team's leader said.

The mummy was in a sealed wooden coffin unearthed in the archaeological site of Dahshur North in northern Egypt, said Sakuji Yoshimura, who headed the team from Tokyo's Waseda University.

The mummified man was believed to be from a period 3,500-4,000 years ago, older than the era of Tutankhamen, the pharaoh of ancient Egypt who ruled in 1336-1327 BC, Yoshimura said, citing characteristics of the coffin.

Its incredible that the team has found a tomb that has not been robbed. Hopefully the tomb contained other artifacts that will also prove as interesting as the mummy itself. No doubt this team will be busy for years probing thier find.

Did you see the paint job on it -- how amazing is it that after 3500 years the colors are still so vivid. I can't wait to learn more about this. Good find FredT.
