Mummies are human remains with preservation of non-bony tissue. Many mummy studies focus on the development and application of non-destructive methods for examining mummies, including radiography, CT-scanning with advanced 3-dimensional visualisations, and endoscopic techniques, as well as minimally-destructive chemical, physical and biological methods for, e.g., stable isotopes, trace metals and DNA.
