Ancient Egypt holds an enduring fascination for audiences around the world. This exhibition offers the opportunity to join the British Museum research team on their journey of discovery and introduces six mummies who lived and died in Egypt between 3,000 and 1,800 years ago. CT scans provide sophisticated images of human remains and objects contained beneath mummy wrappings and determine information such as sex, age and health. Each individual mummy acts as a gateway to reveal aspects of life along the Nile Valley.
