Test could determine whether a woman is pregnant and the sex of the baby.
Egyptologists from the University of Copenhagen managed to translate the papyrus, which is three and a half thousand years. In it was a pregnancy test and sex of the child.
Inscriptions have been found earlier in the ancient Egyptian city of Tebtunis. It gives precise instructions how to determine pregnant woman or not.
The text says that the woman needs to take bags with barley and wheat straw, and urinate on them. In dependence on which of them will be faster sprouts, you could find out the sex of the baby.
If germination was not one, so the woman is not pregnant.
Experts note that a similar test is mentioned in German folklore text 1699.
