This exhibition aims to unravel the mysteries of mummification. From a priest’s daughter to a temple doorkeeper, the interactive displays explore the identities of eight individuals, using their embalmed bodies to uncover clues about how they lived. By using new non-invasive procedures, such as CT scanning and 3D visualisation, the British Museum has been able to build up a picture of life in the Nile Valley over 4,000 years, from prehistoric Egypt to Christian Sudan.
