A scientific model of the face of a 2400-year-old female mummy has been revealed by Otago Museum.

Melbourne boy gets bone from 'boneless' Coles fish stuck in throat

  Melbourne boy gets bone from 'boneless' Coles fish stuck in throat A Melbourne mum had to race her son to hospital after a bone from a Coles "boneless" salmon got lodged in his tonsils. Chantelle Galea told nine.com.au she had served up the supermarket's fish for her family last night when her child began to choke."My son is 10 years old and he says 'Mummy, mummy, I've got a bone stuck in my throat,'" she said."He was crying so I tried to calm him down as much as I could and I grabbed a torch to check his throat and I saw a bone stuck in his tonsil."I tried to get him to drink some water, he couldn't. He was crying, out-of-control.

The final model of the face is the result of scientific, artistic and historical research carried out by the Department of Anatomy and the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Otago.

Researcher Dr Louisa Baillie used the information to rebuild the mummy's face with more accuracy than the previous reconstruction in 2008.

Dr Baillie used CT scans and X-rays to provide better detailed views of the surface of the mummy's skull and facial bones. 

She says it gave her the ability to accurately measure facial muscle and fat appropriate for her height, age, and state of health as well as the size and shape of her nose, lips, eyes and ears to develop a clay reconstruction.

"I took a deep breath when I began constructing the clay representing her soft tissue. I knew that by the end a face would be looking back at me that, although approximate, would show features that were hers when alive," Dr Baillie said.

The mummy has lived at Otago Museum for over 100 years after being donated by Bendix Hallenstein who brought it to Dunedin from the German Consul in Egypt in 1894.

The museum isn't able to identify exactly who she was but radiology images taken in 2000 show that she was about 50-years-old and in poor health when she died.

The marine predators were 10ft-long with strong jaws and serrated teeth that allowed it to feast on large prey, such as prehistoric squid.The Ieldraan melkshamensis, named the Melksham Monster after the Wiltshire town where the fossil was found, once roamed the seas of Europe.
