As part of a larger program of research, several mummies from the city of Akhmim have undergone Computed Tomography (CT) scanning. Analysis of the images of these mummies is providing insight into the age, sex and health of these individuals. In an effort to gain an understanding of how specific people from the city of Akhmim may have looked in life, forensic facial reconstruction was undertaken. This paper is a discussion of the review, analysis and interpretation of the two-dimensional CT images of an Akhmimic mummy through the preparation of virtual on-screen and physical three-dimensional models, including a printed skull.
