Read about an exciting collaboration which has risen between The Egypt Centre and two of the Colleges from Swansea University.  The Institute of Life Science and the Engineering Department, together with the Egypt Centre, are helping to bring Egyptian antiquities ‘back to life’ by allowing mummified remains to be unwrapped without evasive procedures.  As part of this project, Beverley Rogers formed part of the team who were to discuss if ‘Rover’, the Egypt Centre’s mummified dog (EC438), might be a suitable candidate. 

To read Beverley's fascinating account of how digital imaging is helping to determine what is inside mummified wrappings, read her blog here:
