Stunning CT scans of ‘Golden Boy’ mummy from ancient Egypt reveal 49 hidden amulets

Incredibly detailed computed tomography (CT scans) of the so-called “Golden Boy,” mummy from ancient Egypt have revealed a hidden trove of 49 amulets, many of which were made of gold.

The young mummy earned its nickname because of the dazzling display of wealth, which included a gilded head mask found in the mummy’s sarcophagus. Researchers think he was about 14 or 15 years old when he died because his wisdom teeth had not yet emerged.
