Researchers in Egypt use CT scanning technology to digitally unwrap the second pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, Amenhotep I’s mummy without disturbing its beautifully decorated exterior.
The mummy is believed to exhibit the funerary rites of a culture that inhabited the pre-Inca Cajamarquilla archaeological site.
Two Egyptian discoveries were unveiled by a French-led mission in the northern area of Al Asasef.
Archaeologists are hoping the mummification workshop will provide fresh insight into the chemical make-up of the oils used by ancient Egyptians to mummify their dead.
Researchers have combined CT scanning with 3D scans of the surface of a nearly 2,000-year-old mummy of a young girl to create an exact digital copy.
The mummy, excavated in 1956, was reburied due to a state commission ruling which critics say was the result of cultural superstitions.
