Since 2006 the Centre for Egyptological Studies of RAS has been conducting archaeological research in the Theban Tomb (TT) 23. It is located in Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, Luxor. In the course of the field season 2019 fragments of 13 mummified bodies were examined and described. For each person a procedure of mummification was reconstructed. This work resulted in finding out features shared by all the deceased as well as ones dividing them into groups. The obtained data will allow establishing local versions of the mummification rite that were performed at the site in different periods.
