Scientists at leading Catholic universities in the U.S. are calling the discovery of a mummy of an Egyptian woman from 700 A.D., with a tattoo of the name of the Biblical Archangel, Michael, on her thigh a "remarkable" discovery. The archeological find, announced by researchers at the British Museum, over the weekend, was made during a research project using advanced medical scans, including Computed Tomography (CT) images, of Egyptian mummies at a number of U.K. hospitals, after hours, during a period of several months last year.

"The British Museum find is remarkable," Villanova University Biology Professor Michael Zimmerman, and noted expert on the forensics of mummies, tells Foxnews.com.

A mummy of an Egyptian woman dating back to 700 A.D. has been scanned and stripped to reveal a tattoo on her thigh that displays the name of the biblical archangel Michael.

The discovery, announced by researchers at the British Museum over the weekend, was made during a research project that used advanced medical scans, including Computed Tomography (CT) images, to examine Egyptian mummies at a number of hospitals in the United Kingdom last year.
The woman's body was wrapped in a woolen and linen cloth before burial, and her remains were mummified in the desert heat. As deciphered by curators, the tattoo on her thigh, written in ancient Greek, reads ???a??, transliterated as M-I-X-A-H-A, or Michael.
...
"Placing the name on the inner thigh, as with this mummy, may have had some meaning for the hopes of childbirth or protection against sexual violation, as in 'This body is claimed and protected.' Michael is an obvious identity for a tattoo, as this is the most powerful of angels."
...
Villanova University biology professor Michael Zimmerman, who also has used advanced technologies to study Egyptian mummies, said this kind of find has been sought for years.
"I did participate in an expedition to the Dakhleh Oasis in Egypt's western desert several years ago," he told FoxNews.com.
