Death is Not the End: Preparing for Eternity in Ancient Egypt

17 April @ 2.00pm - 3.00pm

Lecture Theatre
Donation £3.
The modern perception of ancient Egypt is that its inhabitants were morbidly obsessed with death. However, it is more accurate to see them as obsessed with life, and willing to do whatever it took – be that removing the brain using a hook up the nose of a corpse, or filling a tomb with magical figures to be with you in the afterlife – to ensure they existed for eternity.
