Voice of 3,000 year old Egyptian mummy reproducedChristian Fernsby ▼ | January 24, 2020
Scientists have revealed what the voice of a mummified Egyptian priest who lived 3,000 years ago would have sounded like by 3-D printing his vocal tract.
David Howard, one of the academics behind the project, describes it as falling somewhere between the vowels in the English words “bed” and “bad.”
“The sound you hear is the sound of his vocal tract in the position he is lying in the sarcophagus,” said Howard, who is professor of electrical engineering at Royal Holloway, University of London. ■
