CT scan of Philadelphia mummy

An article accompanied by a video report about the investigations into a mummy nick-named Annie, originally from Akhmim (c.300 miles south of Cairo), dating to between 300 and 200BC: "Back in April, Annie was taken from the Academy of Natural Sciences to Hahnemann Hospital. Without disturbing Annie's wrappings, she was given a CT scan. These images were then sent to a laboratory to produce a skull model. Now, forensic sculptor Frank Bender will start facial reconstruction."
