The Albany Mummies

* In 1909, Samuel Brown, a board member for the Albany Institute of History and Art, purchased two ancient Egyptian mummies and their coffins from the Cairo Museum in Egypt.

* The mummies date from the 21st Dynasty and the Ptolemaic Period.

* A study of the hieroglyphs on one of the coffins revealed that it contained the mummy of a sculptor and priest named Ankhefenmut.
