From museums to monster flicks, we are all pretty familiar with mummies. But how much do we really know about them? As it turns out, there is quite a bit of missing information -- particularly in regard to the actual process the Egyptians used some three thousand years ago to preserve their dead. In this compelling episode, Curiosity follows a team of scientists and experts as they attempt to crack the ancient and arresting recipe, and perform a modern-day mummification. NOTE: This program features scientists attempting Ancient Egyptian mummification techniques on a real human body. It contains images which some viewers may find disturbing. Please preview before showing in class.
