Egyptian Mummy Scanning Shown on The One Show

Manchester Museum and its curator Campbell Price's appearance on The One Show yesterday was great watching!  The CT scanning of an Egyptian mummy by the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and the results shown on screen were amazing.

Manchester Museum is hoping over time to X-ray all 24 mummies and I look forward to reading about the results in due course.  For those who may not have been able to see it, details were also given in the Manchester Evening News.

Check out Campbell's excellent blog (link can be seen listed in my recommended blogs) for news about the Egyptian collection at Manchester.
