Researchers in London have developed scanning techniques that show what is
written on the papyrus that mummy cases are made from.

These are the decorated boxes into which the wrapped body of the deceased
was placed before it was put in a tomb.

They are made from scraps of papyrus which were used by ancient Egyptians
for shopping lists or tax returns.

The technology is giving historians a new insight into everyday life in
ancient Egypt.

how I should live my life, since I’m so obviously incapable of deciding for
myself.” M. Hashimoto
