It also revealed mummification tools that someone accidentally left inside a real mummy, and it solved a 15,000-year-old mystery surrounding what is believed to be the world's oldest known mummy.

Well it's a good thing that they left the tools inside a mummy, and not inside a live person/animal they were operating on. Otherwise we'd have a whole new set of legal-ese hieroglyphics for medical malpractice and personal injury cases that, like the present-day form of legal-ese, nobody would be able to figure out!
