Welcome to the Unwrapped project blog!

Follow the Unwrapped Project team as we investigate how and why mummies were created and the ways in which mummies can be studied. We will be exploring what can be learnt from the scientific examination of mummies and also carrying out new research into one particular Egyptian mummy – Manchester mummy number 1770. This mummy was studied in the 1970s in a rare example of a scientific unwrapping and autopsy of an ancient mummy to be carried out in the UK.

We will be using new techniques to learn more about the life and death of mummy number 1770. The results of our studies will be posted on this blog as the project progresses.
