More about the mummy case restored with the help of LEGO:
“An engineering student used LEGO to help restore an ancient Egyptian mummy case at Cambridge University. The 10th Century BC Hor Mummy case excavated in 1896 from a Luxor temple had been languishing in a museum basement for the last fifty years.
Its face had been torn to pull out the mummy it previously encased, its chest sagged due to damp conditions and important parts of it were cracking and unstable. So conservators at the Fitzmillian museum called upon the university’s engineering department for help and 22 year old David Knowles rose to the cause. With LEGO” – via Green Prophet.
