The international mission under the auspices of the University of Alcalá working at the Middle Kingdom tomb of the Vizier Ipi (TT 315) has relocated fifty-six jars filled with embalming materials for the mummification of the Vizier. The jars were first recorded byAmerican Egyptologist Herbert Winlock in 1921-22 inside an auxiliary chamber in the north-eastern corner of the upper courtyard of Ipi's tomb. The deposit of the mummification materials used for Ipi included sixty-seven jars with postmarks and other types of inscriptions, various shrouds, linen sheets, bandages, and other textiles used for mummification. Most interestingly, finds include what seems to be a mummified heart.
