Of note is the beehive or egg-shaped hat being worn by one of the mummies. This is similar to the papal tiara.
Here, again, we have an ancient people being discriminated against in their own land by an invading government and people. It also so happens that many (but not all) of these people, like many of Slav, Romani, Persian and Northern African descent, are purposely identified as fair-skinned. I have to believe that this discrimination is beyond skin color, caste, ethnic identity, etc.
