Caption: Mummified remains from Al-Fustat, Egypt. This mummy was excavated from the Al-Fustat site in Egypt. It dates from the time of the Fatimid dynasty, a caliphate of Shi'ite Muslims which was founded in 909 and ruled over a North African empire until 1171. During their rule, the Fatimids relocated the capital of Egypt from Al-Fustat to the more northern city of Cairo. These remains are well-preserved, having mummified naturally. The head is clearly visible on the left.
