Using a hospital scanner scientists have been able to peer inside the coffin of ancient Egyptian priestess Meresamun, giving them a first glimpse of this face from the distant past.
She has lain undisturbed for nearly 3,000 years, sealed in a decorated coffin ready for her voyage to the underworld. Now the face of Meresamun, a priestess who sang in the temples of Ancient Egypt hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, has been revealed to the world for the first time. Using a hospital scanner, scientists were able to peer inside her closed casket, and see through the layers of line that protected her mummified features."
