Moving out King Tut's artifacts seems to be a highly technical job. Egyptologists are afraid that they might get damaged during the process of dismantling them before transferring to the new Grand Egyptian Museum.
For over twenty years, scientists have used modern technology, in the form of CT scans and X-rays, to virtually unwrap mummified remains. These powerful tools, which allow researchers to peer inside mummies, provide information as to cause of death, burial treatment, and individual traits of the deceased. But now, this technology is being used to explore a new breed of Egyptian mummies: animals that were preserved to accompany the dead. And perhaps the greatest surprise is what's missing from these mummified treasures.
