The Sleeping Beauty of Capuchin Catacombs, Italy.



The Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo are located in Sicily, Italy.

In the 16th century, the Capuchin monks of Palermo discovered that their catacombs contained a natural preservative that helped mummify their dead.

One of the most famous mummies is that of a two year old girl, Rosalia Lombardo who passed in 1920.

Rosalia was placed in the catacombs when she died in 1920.

Her body is so well preserved that she looks as if she were just sleeping in her glass coffin, hence her nickname “Sleeping Beauty”.

The secret for her excellent state of preservation was revealed a few years ago, when a hand-written memoir of the embalmer, Alfredo Salafia, was discovered.

This memoir recorded the chemicals that he injected into Rosalia’s blood. These chemicals were formalin, zinc salts, alcohol, salicylic acid, and glycerin.

It has been suggested that it was the zinc salts that were most responsible for Rosalia’s amazing state of preservation.
This is...wow... shocked

I think it was a bad idea posting your picture on a page where all we're looking at are mummies.

I almost thought you were one of them undecided

He actually is one of them. He is a 2 decade, 24 year old mummy of nairaland on trousers and shirt with an android phone

Ötzi the Iceman, Germany.


Ötzi the iceman, who was discovered by hikers in the Alps, border between Austria and Italy in 1991, was originally believed to be the frozen corpse of a mountaineer or soldier who died during World War I.

Tests later confirmed the iceman dates back to 3,300 BC and most likely died from a blow to the back of the head.
He is Europe's oldest natural human mummy and, remarkably, his body contained the still intact blood cells, which resembled a modern sample of blood.

They are the oldest blood cells ever identified. His body was so well-preserved that scientists were even able to determine that his last meal was red deer and herb bread, eaten with wheat bran, roots and fruit.

Oetzi rests in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in northern Italy today and holds the title of Europe’s oldest natural human mummy
