Microscopic analysis of textiles from burials dating to the earliest periods of Egyptian civilisation has shown surprising developments in funerary practices and beliefs. These include the use of resins some 2000 years before it is currently believed to have been used in mummification. The author has analysed textiles on site in Egypt for the ACE and various European missions, and in museum collections.
