In addition to the appearance of the ancient mummy, scientists are going to confirm the sex of the human remains with the help of MRI. As recently, a male mummy was scanned in Poland. However, the diagnostics showed that in fact, the relics belonged to a woman.

Recall that earlier Egyptian scientists conducted computer tomographic studies of the mummy of Pharaoh Sekenar Ta’a II and found previously unknown new details of his life.
