The employees of the British Museum conducted the first in history three-dimensional scanning of the mummy from Ancient Egypt.
Priest Nesperennub was buried in Fivi about 2,800 years ago. This is one of the most well-known mummies from the collection of the British Museum in London.
Earlier, the mummies were studied by X-ray tomography, but so far, nobody received three-dimensional computer map of the mummy, layer by layer. For this purpose, about 1,500 X-ray “cuts” were produced, and they were transformed in three-dimensional model by computer.
Now the museum visitors can see the inner part of the model after putting on special three-dimensional computer glasses. The skeleton of the priest is very well seen, it is even seen that one of his teeth was aching.
In addition, there is a round hole in Nesperennub’s skull as if he died of bullet.
