    Think you know mummies? Think again.

    In recent years, British Museum curators have collaborated with scientists and medical experts to explore non-invasive imaging techniques to further study Egyptian mummies. Eight mummies were taken to hospital to undergo CT scans and Ancient Lives, New Discoveries shares the findings along with 200 specially commissioned photographs. From a priest’s daughter to a temple singer, a man of high status to a child, a temple doorkeeper to a woman with a Christian tattoo, these eight mummies have unique stories to tell.

    If you happen to be in London, pop into The British Museum to visit the exhibition. State-of-the-art technology will allow you to virtually explore inside mummy cases and examine the bodies underneath the wrappings. It is truly fascinating. And not too scary. We promise.

    Here's how the mummies were scanned in a hospital:

    At the beginning of the 1995 football season, Hans van der Meer set out to take a series of football photographs that avoided the clichéd traditions of modern sports photography. In an attempt to record the game in its original form, he sought matches at the bottom end of the amateur leagues. Preferring neutral lighting, framing and camera angles, he chose to pull back from the central subject of the pitch, locating the playing field and its unfolding action within a specific landscape and context.

    Van der Meer began by focusing on sites within the Netherlands and later his European odyssey took him from small towns in the remote regions of Europe to the fringes of the major conurbations of Greece, Finland, England, France, Germany, and more.

    This isn't our World Cup fever talking... there is some incredibly touching about Van De Meer's work and we just can't take our eyes off it.

    Bestselling YA novel The Maze Runner will grace the big screen in September so here's the trailer to whet your appetite! Prepare for chills...

    blog image When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.
