    Based at the University of Hamburg in Germany, this site is subtitled "Unwrapping a Mummy by Mouse Click " and it aims to do just that. The mummy is that of a 30-year old woman from about 2300 years ago, and we are shown how the body was first scanned in to the computer, then reconstructed using CGI. The final results, which require QuickTime to view, allow the user to look at the different parts of the skull in six different ways. These include x-rays of the head and teeth, a 360 degree rotation of the skull as well as the mummy’s head being unwrapped layer by later. The site is available in both English and German language versions.
