The Brain Scoop:
MUMMY BRAINS!

If you’ve been following along with our updates from JP’s lab, you’ll remember a post from last week where I mentioned the discovery of unlikely brains found in the skull of this Late Period mummy. Here’s the interview and discussion with JP himself!

These artifacts are being conserved to ensure their stability prior to joining the traveling exhibit, Mummies: Images of the Afterlife. Stay tuned to the exhibition page and you might get a chance to see Pen Ptah for yourself!
