A British dig in 1892 unearthed a nondescript tomb, in Hieraconpolis, Egypt. No clues could be found to reveal who the person who occupied it was or anything about his place in society.

The body was found outside the open crypt, curled up in a corner and only partially decomposed. Thousands of scratch marks adorned every surface inside of the tomb, as if the corpse had tried to claw its way out. Forensic experts have revealed that the scratches were made over a period of several years. The body itself had several bite marks on the right radius, which matched impressions left by human teeth.

A full autopsy revealed that the dried, partially decomposed brain not only matched those infected by Solanum (the frontal lobe was completely melted away) but also contained trace elements of the virus itself. Debate now rages as to whether or not this case prompted later Egyptian specialists to remove the brains from their mummies.
