Live@Exploratorium Beneath The Mummy's Shroud

Show Schedule
On 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.

See our Science-at-Home activity: 'Make A Mummy' to learn more about the process of mummification.

See the archives of our April 1st Webcast hosted by Sedge Thompson of West Coast Live, and of our April 22 Webcast exploring the brain.
