BRIDGEPORT - A 4,000-year-old mummy owned by Bridgeport's Barnum Museum spent the day at Quinnipiac University undergoing some very modern tests.
Pa-Ibe's mummified remains went through a battery of the most advanced medical imaging tests available, something never done before on mummy.
The tests were performed after X-rays three years ago noticed something, thought to possibly be a bird, tucked inside the mummy. However, Thursday's tests showed that it wasn't a bird and could in fact be her organs.
The researchers say it will take years to go through all the data provided by Thursday's tests.
