Are the bones brown if the flesh and wrappings are still covering them?
For all we know, a chunk of the dessicated flesh disintegrated last week or something, exposing the bone underneath.
Unburied bone turns light brown when it ages, and I've not seen pink bone on a mummy yet, even one that's been recently unwrapped. That's fresh bone
colour on that 'finger'. Also, I've done some chasing up with the image, and although it claims to have X ray verification it doesn't show it in a way
so you can see it it all. Screams bogus to me.
What you have to remember is that in ancient times people were shorter, the average was about 5'5''. They would have though the modern Swedes at 6'1''
were giants. When very old texts refer to giants, they could be talking about a relatively normal gap in heights. Someone from a different ethnic
group who was 6'5'' would seem like an exotic giant.
