CT-scanning the Manchester Mummies
Mon 27 Oct, 1-2pm. A new look beneath the bandages of several of the Manchester Museum’s 20 human mummies, examined using CT-scans and interpreted by former consultant Dr Bob Loynes. A brief explanation of CT scans – how they work and how they can be used to discover the mysteries of ancient Egyptian mummification techniques. The unique collection of Egyptian mummies in Manchester Museum has recently undergone investigation using CT scanning and some of the results will be used to illustrate this modern medical imaging procedure and its contribution to Egyptology. Part of Manchester Science Festival, supported by Siemens.
