Why was this ancient Egyptian boy dressed as a girl?
Saw this article when looking for some news about that Chinese 'urgent' news and I found it interesting.
Apparently the mummified remains of a young boy, age 4 or 5, was found to be dressed as if he was a female under the wraps. There seems to be no
indication of why this was, but internal biological scans have confirmed the sex as male yet he was wearing female adornments such as breast cones.
Has anyone else read of something similar?
I really dont know why this would be. Perhaps he had some sort of genetic disease or physical malformationthat was not able to be detected 1700 years
ago. Perhaps he appeard to be a she as far as a physical examination and therefore was dressed as such.
Check it out, its short but an interesting read.
