Mummy analysis. Egyptian mummy wrapped in linen about to be sent for X-ray analysis. By using X- ray techniques, archaeologists can study the cause of death of the subject without unwrapping the preserved body from its linen. This mummy turned out to be that of a 35-year old man with no notable signs of injury or illness. The mummy was found in the Valley of the Mummies, a six kilometre stretch of tunnels and burial chambers carved into the sandstone of the Bahareya Oasis in the Western Desert, Egypt. The tombs date back to the third century AD during the Roman occupation of Egypt (see image H160/108 of X-ray).
