The other night, I was reading to my younger daughter from a book about ancient Egypt. She was interested in knowing more about mummies in particular; she had a lot of questions about the process of human preservation and the reasons behind it. I could only answer so many questions, so we made a plan to go to Chicago’s Field Museum the next day to view their ancient Egypt exhibit and see things up close and in person. A lot of questions were answered by watching the museum’s absolutely incredible – Images of the Afterlife . This video installment shows CT scans of mummies that reveal every detail of the preserved bodies underneath and 3D facial images as well.
