Two mummies discovered in Croatia


Two mummified bodies dating from the 18th century were discovered in eastern Croatia during restoration works on the crypt of a Roman Catholic cathedral, officials said today.

"Two well preserved mummified bodies have been discovered so far," Matija Zurakovic, a priest from the eastern town of Pozega, said.

National television broadcast images of the bodies in their coffins.

According to Father Zurakovic they were locals who were buried in the crypt of the cathedral around the year 1700. Hundreds of coffins remain inside the crypt and are still to be examined by experts.
