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.
Thanks to the 2011 Digging into Data
Challenge (SSHRC & NEH) and 50 participating institutions the IMPACT Mummy Database Project is now live!
