If you were following us on Twitter last June, you probably remember us live tweeting as a group of mummies were taken to North Shore University Hospital for CT scanning. Tomorrow, our conservators are going to be in our conservation lab re-wrapping the “Anonymous Man” (shown above getting his CT scan) to get him ready for display for the Mummy Chamber (pdf) long-term installation opening in early Summer. We’re going to live tweet the process direct from the lab and the conservators are going to answer questions via Twitter as time allows. Should be a fun, behind-the-scenes look the process from our conservation lab.
Follow us – we’ll be using the #mummywrap hashtag and hope to see you tomorrow!
