BBC Radio Kent interview
About the Canterbury Museum Egyptian head
On Friday 9th July 2021 my interview with Max Barrett concerning the Canterbury Museum ancient Egyptian mummified head was aired. A big thanks to Max for inviting me on the show, which has taken listeners around Kent letter-by-letter from A-Z. When it came to the letter X there really was no option but to go for X-ray!
During the short 7 minute interview we discussed the history of the head, the x-rays and what we have found out so far. In short, we can deduce from the x-rays that this is an adult female with significant wear upon her teeth. I hope to arrange a CT scan of the head to find out more about the individal.
A recording of the interview will be made available once it has been uploaded. A video of the x-ray event is also due for release soon.
