Manchester Museum scan mummies to find out secrets of the ancient Egyptians

Pictures show for the first time how cutting-edge technology is being used to analyse the millennia-old mystery of Egyptian mummies.

Staff from Manchester Museum invited the M.E.N. to watch the preserved bodies undergo CT scans at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. 

Over the coming months, museum staff hope to scan all 24 of their mummies.
