The mummy of a priest who lived in Egypt south of Cairo in 500 B.C. underwent a CT scan at Stanford University in August. It was a merging of archeology, technology, science, history, medicine and art.
The pictures were enhanced to the color images. What they show is a detailed insight into life in ancient egypt; who he was, how he lived, and how he died.
The mummy was brought to the U.S. around 1890 and came to San Francisco 25 years later. In the 40s the mummy was loaned to the Haggin Museum in Stockton and returned just last August.
The exhibit opens Saturday and continues through next August.
