Mummy mystery

The linen-wrapped head was unearthed in 1915, from a tomb in a necropolis 186 miles south of Cairo. The tomb, which held the remains of Governor and Lady Djehutynakht, had been disturbed by robbers, and the disembodied head had been left behind. Today, doctors are using modern technology to unravel the mysteries of the head.
