Getting his head examined

In 1968 UK scientist Ronald Harrison re-opened Tutankhamun's coffin to X-ray the mummy. The original X-rays have never been on public display - until now.

You can see three of Tutankhamun's skull X-rays at the Science Museum. They've given 21st century scientists new clues about the Pharaoh's life.
