Demetrios in the Times


“While mummies have been subjected to CT scans for more than two decades, it was a first for the museum and for North Shore. The goal was to gain insights into who Demetrios was, how he died and what his mummified remains might tell them about Egyptian funerary practices.”

Our mummy, Demetrios, is featured in today’s New York Times with a full article by Carol Vogel and a multimedia slideshow. Conservator Tina March will be blogging about Demetrios in the coming weeks.
