    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:
