Mummies Recreated by 3D Printers

Cat Mummy - Web Pro News

"Mummies are one of the most fascinating relics of human history because they give us an idea of what the human body was like thousands of years ago. Unfortunately, many have been damaged over the last 100 years thanks to mishandling by researchers who didn’t know any better. They’ve gotten better about handling mummies, but now researchers can make detailed recreations with the help of 3D printers." - Web Pro News
Take a look at the following article and video which talks about how archaeologists and researchers are recreating the bodies of mummies through 3D printing and X-ray scanners.
