Caption: Museum curator and mummified head. This mummified head, from the museum at Morlaix, France, was of uncertain origin until a study was carried out in 2009. This study used non-invasive scanning techniques to establish that the mummified head was that of an Egyptian man. The study, in collaboration with the Useful Progress 3D imaging company, was carried out in the anthropology collection at the Musee de l'Homme (Museum of Man), Paris, France, one of the departments of the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN). At right is the collection's curator Alain Froment. Photographed in 2010.
