CT scans of mummy Djehutynakht
An article about the CT scans of the mummy Djehutynakht, a 4,000 year old mummy artifact of an Egyptian governor from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. "Because the tomb had been looted before archaeologists discovered it in 1915, a fair degree of uncertainty surrounds the Djehutynakht artifact. Though widely regarded to be a male, is not absolutely clear whether the mummified head belonged to the governor or his wife who was entombed with him". The article dates back to the 1st August, but I have only just noticed it - there is a good picture of the mummy's exterior, but no scan photos.
