To Greeks and Romans, Egypt was an ancient and exotic land, with peculiar customs, especially in terms of gender roles. Shops and markets in Egypt were run by women and men did the weaving. Collecting Egyptian antiquities was already fashionable in Roman times, but modern Egyptology begins with the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, a slab of black basalt inscribed with a message in three forms of writing: hieroglyphic Egyptian, demotic Egyptian, and the Greek alphabet. Formal hieroglyphs, ‘‘the words of the gods,’’ were not only a way of writing, but also a form of artistic expression.

But identifications were generally tentative and sometimes incorrect because many tombs and mummies had been vandalized by grave robbers. Egyptian priests rescued and rewrapped many royal mummies, but the bodies often ended up in mismatched coffins with new identities. Researchers are now able to convert data from CT scans into realistic three-dimensional (3D) images of mummies without removing the outer wrappings. Using this method, scientists can explore previously unknown aspects of Egyptian burial rituals and find artifacts placed inside mummies, such a ceramic bowl that appeared in images of the head of a three thousand-year-old mummy.
