Abstract

This article discusses mummification processes, both natural and
intentional, and presents a brief history of ancient Egyptian
mummification procedures. The article then provides an overview of
existing technologies for analyzing mummies, and the varied uses and
applications of examining mummies. It also presents some background
and issues related to mummy storage and display in museum
environments. Given the ancient procedures used, the limitations of
modern analysis techniques, and the existing problems trying to store
and display mummies today, the article concludes by summarizing
both the current challenges and benefits of the present-day study of
mummies, and offering some cautions.
