LOMBARDI, Guido P.. MUMMY CONSERVATION AND PALEOPATHOLOGY. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2001, vol.33, n.1, pp.87-89. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562001000100014.

The curation of human mummified remains is discussed from the point of view of the paleopathologist. The preservation of a body (and samples) after its study involves: (1) The type of mummification process used, and the deterioration since (taphonomy); (2) Method of study utilized (radiology and/or non-destructive autopsy: maximizes information, minimizes damage); (3) Individualized restoration; and (4) Storage (including samples and documents): environment and pest-barriers. Finally, the respect that each human body deserves is emphasized, as well as the laws and beliefs of each nation. Some examples are given from Perú and the United States

Palabras clave : Museology; paleopathology.
