Kerma Culture Burial (~2050-1750 BC) 3D Model
Scanned at the British Museum from behind a glass display case.
“This reconstructed burial shows a typical Kerma culture grave from a cemetery in northern Sudan. The man has been placed in a crouched position on his right side, his head to the east, facing north. Sacrificed sheep/goats are by his feet, with pottery vessels and joints of meat to one side. Such ritual practices suggest that these people believed in some form of afterlife. Analysis of the skeleton showed that these are the remains of an adult male who was ~1.75m tall. He died between the ages of 35 & 50 & his teeth are heavily worn. This has led to dental disease and his upper jaw (maxilla) has a large abscess above one of the incisors. The healed fractures on his feet, ribs and long bones suggest an active or violent life. The fracture on his right ulna -called a parry fracture - usually occurs when the arm is lifted to deflect a blow to the head. The meat offerings from the sheep &/or goats, are all from young animals”
