Egyptian mummy. Coloured X-ray of an Egyptian mummy showing the hands, pelvis and thigh bones. By using X-ray techniques, archaeologists can study the cause of death of the subject without unwrapping the preserved body from its linen. The image shows no notable signs of injury or illness. This mummy was taken from the Valley of the Mummies, a six kilometre stretch of tunnels and burial chambers carved into the sandstone of the Bahariya Oasis in the Western Desert, Egypt. The tombs date back to around the third century AD during the Roman occupation of Egypt. H160/109 showing the wrapped mummy).
