Smith G. E.: The Royal Mummies, Catalogue Général des Antiquités Égyptiennes du Musée du Caire, Cairo 1912:
pathological-forensic study of the mummies found in TT320 with digitally reconstructed sepia coloured versions of the
excellent original black and white plates (also posted to compare). Although 100 years old at the time of this web
publication, the content remains valid and the photographs made at that time are of remarkable quality. Digital
processing with the best state-of-the-art software (2011) by CESRAS Research Fellow Edward R. Loring has made some
of the mummies seem almost alive. Smith's text is linked with equivalent data in
Maspero's Momies Royales (see above)
