By blending the digital model of the mummified cat with the internal CAT scan, the team were able to create an ‘outside and in’ animation of the entire artefact.
The scan revealed a kitten skeleton far smaller than the bandages it was encased in.
Mr Curtis said: “You’d make more money selling a big mummified cat, compared to a small one, so they basically bulked it out with bandages to make it look bigger.
