. In Case You’ve Missed It Ireland Will Return Mummified Remains and a Painted Sarcophagus to Egypt « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – The items are owned by University College Cork (UCC) and date from between 975 BCE and 100 CE. The sarcophagus was donated to UCC in 1928 and, based on an inscription on its surface, likely holds the remains of a man named Hor. The university said it will return its collection of Egyptian artifacts in 2023. The group includes a set of four canopic jars, containers in which the individually mummified organs would be placed during the mummification process. The jars are recognized by their lids, which were commonly shaped in the likeness of four animal-headed guardian deities.
