There are secrets belonging to thousands of different ancient worlds beneath the earth which are gradually being dug out by archaeologists and put to study for further research. In 1994, some archeologists discovered 250 mummified bodies buried underneath a church in Hungary. Two, 300 years old perfectly preserved bodies of mother and son, who died of Tuberculosis were dug out. The mummified bodies were of a 38-year-old woman, identified as Veronica Skripetz, and her one-year-old son.
The bodies were wheeled inside a medical research centre in California for an autopsy scan to find out the cause of their death, as doctors hope to resolve the mystery of this mother and son, who rest in their graves. The result of the CT scan would be revealed at the Bowers Museum during the "Mummies of the World" exhibition.
