Mummy X-rayed

An Egyptian mummy has received a 'clean bill of health' in a hospital check-up. Tem Hor, a priest who lived on the River Nile and died 2,000 years ago, was X-rayed at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, by Swansea Museum staff, who wanted to check that he was not crumbling beneath his bandages.
