Britain Mummies
The Mummy of Tamut, a temple singer around 900 BC, is shown during a press conference at the British Museum in London, Wednesday April 9, 2014. Scientists at the British Museum have used CT scans and volume graphics software to go beneath the bandages, revealing the skin, bones, internal organs, and in one case a brain-scooping rod left inside a skull by embalmers. The results are going on display in an exhibition which sets eight of the museum's mummies alongside detailed 3-D images of their insides. (AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
