Museum scans mummies for clues to past (
"Two mummies from the Milwaukee Public Museum have received computerized tomography, or CT, scans to help determine how they lived and died. The scans will produce three-dimensional images of the mummies that also will help researchers visualize what they looked like and build sculptures of their faces. The scans, performed Friday, are part of a larger effort by the Akhmim Mummy Studies Consortium to gather images of mummies collected from the Akhmim site in Egypt."
See the brief article above for more details.
