Studies in Mummies

Can never have too many articles on the lost art of mummification, I say lost though in reality our old friend Herodotus gave us three economical versions on how to create one, depending on how much money you can afford to throw in the grave.

This study by Canada's University of Western Ontario includes radiological scans of 84 mummies in museum collections around the world. The purpose to verify standards of mummification in ancient times within this group of mummies.

The article has a link to the study as well excellent pictures!
