Mummies via virtual reality

2nd July 2004 at 01:00
Pupils are being asked to cut open 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummies as part of a new virtual reality exhibit at the British Museum.

Visitors to "Mummy: the inside story" use 3D glasses and a virtual scalpel to unwrap the mummified body of an 800BC priest. The exhibition opens this week and runs until January 2005.
