More re Davenport mummies


All a bit inconclusive:

Officials at the Putnam Museum in Davenport want some expert advice on their two mummies.A CT scan taken last week shows how the mummies were preserved -- but how they died remains a mystery. Museum officials says puncture holes, incisions and rolled-up linens seen inside the two bodies offer important clues about the mummification process used thousands of years ago. Now, the museum wants an
Egyptologist or cultural anthropologist to further study the CT scans to help determine when they lived, which would determine how old they are.
