Mummies Undergo CT Scans
Mummies at the Bowers Museum in California have been subjected to CT scans in the latest fashionable round of mummy-scanning. Of the six mummies examined, one was a priest from a wealthy family, one was a young girl who sang during religious rituals and another was a child, buried in a finely carved wooden coffin. The scans will be included in an exhibition scheduled to open on the 17th April at the Bowers Museum.
