Modern Technology and the Manchester Mummies
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Mummified human remains are synonymous with Ancient Egypt and with Manchester Egyptology, and they provide an unparalleled body of evidence through which to investigate life and death in the past. The ethics and practicalities of different methods of studying mummies is explored, including X-rays, endoscopic examination, CT scans, and the history of public ‘unwrappings’. The rapidly advancing and continually evolving technology of digital imagery, including the latest generation ‘Dual Energy’ scanners, and increased access to clinical facilities through collaboration with the NHS in Manchester, continues to revolutionise and refine non-destructive methods of study at Manchester Museum, greatly adding to our understanding of life and death in Ancient Egypt.
