May 13, 2000, we peeked under the wrappings of an Egyptian mummy
from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. A live video link
connected us to the imaging center at UC San Francisco. Radiologist
Dr. Henry Goldberg and Fine Arts museum conservator Lesley Bone
guided us through the CT scan and helped to interpret the findings.
This mummy had never before been examined with sophisticated tools,
so the audience was part of the discovery process. Watch the archived
webcast and unwrap an ancient mystery.
