Overview

After thousands of years of speculation, new technology helps researchers to discover the remarkable methods that the Egyptians once used to mummify human remains and ensure that the bodies of the deceased stayed in tact for centuries after burial. Thanks to recent developments in science Egyptologists like Dr. Robert Brier are now able to understand more than ever before about the complex process used to mummify bodies as far back as 3000 B.C. By using these methods, Dr. Brier is able to perform the first body mummification in approximately 2000 years. Investigate the deaths of such famed mummies as King Tut as scientists utilize 3-D imaging in order to discover precisely how they died, and find out how high-tech display cases are used to protect these valued treasures from the ravages of time.
