The first major exhibition in the National Museum of Scotland’s new purpose-built exhibition space will be Fascinating Mummies, featuring treasures from two of the world’s great ancient Egyptian collections. Objects dating back as far as 4000BC will guide visitors through the complex rituals surrounding death and afterlife in ancient Egypt, including mummification and burial.
The National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, the Netherlands, has one of the world’s leading ancient Egyptian collections, with an extraordinary range of material including human and animal mummies. This material will be complemented by a small selection from National Museums Scotland’s own collections. These feature thousands of objects from ancient Egypt, including mummies and coffins collected in the mid-19th century by Scottish archaeologist Alexander Henry Rhind.
