About The Exhibit
Glittering gold and mysterious mummies are among Ancient Egyptâ€™s most enduring attractions.
Golden Mummies of EgyptÂ examines hopes and fears about the afterlife when Egypt was part of the Greek and Roman worlds (c. 300 BC-200 AD). Wealthy members of this multicultural society had their mummified bodies encased in gold in hopes of joining the gods after death.
The exhibition consists of over 100 key objects from the Manchester Museumâ€™s world-class collection, including eight mummies, as well as masks, coffins, jewelry and sculpture. Blending Egyptian, Roman and Greek imagery, the strikingly lifelike painted mummy portraits are among the most haunting images from the Ancient World.
Using interactive CT scan technology,Â Golden Mummies of EgyptÂ reveals stories hidden beneath the wrappings, but also questions why we are fascinated by mummies and what they might tell us about ourselves.
