Researchers divulge details about Louisiana mummy

He was probably a redhead, tall and in good shape when he died of an unidentified cause by age 30. That's according to researchers, who used X-rays and a computerized topography scan to learn more about the 2,300-year-old mummy housed at the Louisiana Art and Science Museum. The release of their findings coincided with the unveiling of a major renovation of the museum's ancient Egypt gallery.

The research also provided answers to questions left unresolved after X-rays done in the 1980s, and more details about man behind the mummy researchers say was found near Thebes, Egypt.

Apparently, anonymous is also into Greek and Women in Thongs. Or maybe just the latter. Don't click.
