IMPACT’s Mission

The IMPACT Radiological Mummy Database is a large-scale, multi-institutional collaborative research project devoted to the scientific study of mummified remains, and the mummification traditions that produced them, through non-destructive medical imaging technologies.

IMPACT focuses on the body,  made artifact through cultural or natural intervention, in bioarchaeology, epidemiology, and social archaeology studies of  past human societies and their genetic and cultural descendants.


The IMPACT Project has been successful in the 2011 Digging into Data Challenge, and will be receiving support from SSHRC and  NEH in 2012 & 2013! 

IMPACT has made arrangements with 49 institutions, to date, to share their radiographic mummy data, with live online access expected in Summer 2013.
