Experts do not want to disturb the casket, which has remained sealed since Meresamun was laid to rest almost 1, years before the birth of Christ. But now cutting edge X-ray technology has allowed scientists to peer through the coffin and obtain astonishing 3D images of the mummy, still wrapped in her linen bandages. A state-of-the-art computed tomography CT scanner was used to peel away the layers and reveal Meresamun's skeleton. The mummy's remaining internal organs can be seen, as well as what appear to be stones placed in her eye sockets.
