Putting a face to a mummy


Imaging + Posters, from the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, have teamed up with forensic facial reconstruction artist Jennifer Mann, Medical Museum curator Dr. Ryan Jefferies (Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology), and forensic Egyptologist Dr. Janet Davey (Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine), to reconstruct the face of a 2000 year old Egyptian mummy.  

Make sure you see the video showing the reconstruction of Meritamun's face from her mummified remains.

Dr Varsha Pilbrow is currently supervising Masters student, Stacey Gorski who is using forensic pathology to try to uncover how she may have died.
