Albany Mummies ... On the Move and In a Movie

On March 31st AIHA’s two mummies will travel to Albany Medical Center to undergo x-rays and CT scans in anticipation of the exhibition GE Presents: the Mystery of the Albany Mummies: the Story of Ankhefenmut.

Experts hope that these medical imaging results will reveal details about the mummies’ genders, causes of death, and their lives long ago. This new research will be included in a documentary titled “The Albany Mummies: Unraveling an Ancient Mystery”.  The initiative is a collaboration between the Albany Institute of History & Art, Albany Medical Center, University at Albany Foundation, and the University at Albany College of Arts & Sciences and Center for Humanities, Arts, and TechnoSciences.  The documentary will also be featured in the exhibition.
