Dead Sea asphalt in ancient Egyptian mummies : why? by A Nissenbaum( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Organic carbon and humic substances contents, carbon isotope composition and peroxidase activity in sediments from DSDP Sites 15-147 and 75-532, supplementary data to: Nissenbaum, Arie; Serban, Andrei (1987): Enzymatic activity-associated with humic substances in deep sediments from the Cariaco Trench and Walvis Ridge. Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 51(2), 373-378 by A Nissenbaum( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sediment samples from the Cariaco Trench (DSDP Leg 15) and the Walvis Ridge (DSDP Leg 75) ranging in age from Holocene to Upper Miocene (approximately 8 million years BP) and in depth from 5 to 258 m were extracted with basic sodium pyrophosphate and the extract analyzed for enzymic activity. Since no dehydrogenase, alkaline phosphatase or esterase activity was found, it is estimated from these data that the maximum bacterial population does not exceed 1000 cells per gram dry sediment. Peroxidase activity was, however, found in most samples: this showed marked dependence on the humic substance concentration (expressed as percent of the organic carbon content) and increased with depth at a rate of 33 units per meter. To explain this observation, we favor an hypothesis based on the presence of active humic-enzyme association. The humic substances absorb and stabilize peroxidase which is liberated throughout the sediment column by lysis of cells. The association of the enzyme with the humic substances protects it from biodegradation and denaturation. This hypothesis agrees with laboratory experiments which show the enhanced stability of humic-enzyme complexes towards degradation by biological, chemical and thermal effects

DEAD SEA ASPHALT IN ANCIENT EGYPTIAN MUMMIES—WHY?( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The asphalt from the Dead Sea was an important item of trade in antiquity. Among its many uses, the most widespread was its export to Egypt for use in the mummification process, albeit at a relatively late date; that is, post 1000bc . Its use became particularly important in the Ptolemaic–Roman period, as demonstrated by a war in the fourth centurybc specifically to gain commercial control of this product. Although the reasons why the Egyptians wanted Dead Sea asphalt at this specific time are nowhere specified, the answer may lie in its increasing availability as a (partial) replacement for the plant resins used previously. A review of the historical literature shows that Dead Sea asphalt was used for at least two millennia as a biocidal agent in agricultural practices. It is proposed that the reasons for using Dead Sea asphalt in the mummification process are due to its dual role; first, as an external mechanical shield, when smeared on the exterior of mummy wrapping, to prevent ingress by insects, fungi, bacteria and moisture; and, second, as a biocidal agent (perhaps due to its high sulphur content), which prevented the flesh from decaying, the prime concern for the ancient Egyptians
