Think you know mummies?
Think again.

The exhibition will introduce visitors to eight real people who were mummified in ancient Egypt and Sudan. Using the latest technology to understand the mummies, the exhibition will unlock hidden secrets to build up a picture of their lives in the Nile Valley over a remarkable 4,000 years – from prehistoric Egypt to Christian Sudan.

From a priest’s daughter to a temple singer, a man of high status to a child, a temple doorkeeper to a woman with a Christian tattoo, visitors will find out how they lived and how they died, unravel the mysteries of mummification and piece together a world that has been lost for centuries.

Visitors will discover that underneath all the apparent differences, we all share a remarkably common humanity.
