Maltese researchers to meticulously study remains of Egyptian mummies

A team of Maltese researchers will now be able to meticulously study various material thanks to new and specialised equipment after the university of Malta obtained €100,000 in European funds to collaborate with the European Facility for Synchrotron Radiation in France for the study of mummies.

This equipment will be analysing in greater detail the mummies dating back to Egyptian times with a more advanced process than the previous manual process which used to be carried out by professionals trained in this field. The main researcher involved in this project is Professor Johann A Briffa.

Using a CT scan similar to what is used in the health sector, the researchers will be able to study the material without causing any damage.  The aim is that through this research new methods can be developed with the use of artificial intelligence in procedures of this kind.
