A singer is the star of the show in a new exhibition of mummies at the British Museum for which modern medical scanners have been used to examine eight bodies and find out what they looked like, how they lived and how they died.The technology has helped the researchers to look through bandages and inside mummy cases that have never been opened, take images of amulets and statues stored with the body and reproduce those objects for display at the exhibition "Ancient Lives, New Discoveries" which opens on May 22 .One mummy whose casket had never been opened is that of a female named Tamut who lived in Thebes at about 900 B.C. Inscriptions on the casket say she was a "chantress," or singer, for the god Amun, probably at the Temple of Karnak.
