Discovery performs a 'Mummy Autopsy'

MUMBAI: On the heels of Egypt Week which it had aired in April Discovery has announced that it will continue to examine the mysteries of Egyptian culture with Mummy Autopsy. The show airs every Friday at 9 pm.

Undertaking a study of bones, skin and textiles to profile people who lived and died a long time ago the Mummy Autopsy team of specialist scientists travel across continents analysing the final moments of a person's life and the often strange circumstances and as yet unsolved circumstances surrounding his or her death.

The team takes on cases like investigating a mummy in Scotland that may be a lost queen of Egypt. Another episode traces the last steps of a skeleton out of Wyoming's Wild West in the US. Another episode connects a family of ancient Egyptians whose mummies are now spread across Brazil, Holland and in the UK.

There are five scientists involved in the show. They include Tiffiny Tung who is an assistant professor of Anthropology at Vanderbilt University and Ken Nystrom who is a physical anthropologist at the university of New Mexico. His expertise encompasses caves and underwater archaeology.
