Susan James, part of a National Geographic-supported forensics team that recently tried to positively identify the corpse of Nefertiti, scans the mummy known as the Elder Lady.
Both the Elder Lady and her companion, the Younger Lady, were found without the sarcophagi and wrappings that protect so many other Egyptian mummies. One of the mummmies shows evidence of severe wounds while the arms of the others have become detached.
But CT scanning was able to piece together the mummies' original placement in the tombwhich would have reflected their royal status. The information suggests that neither corpse is Nefertiti, the forensics team says.
