Akhet Egyptology



McManus Galleries

Albert Square

The ancient Egypt display is fairly small, but it makes up for this by being very well designed and laid out. The exhibit is in a small darkened room arranged to represent the inside of a tomb. The major items on display are the mummy and coffin of a noblewoman, from the 9th century B.C., and a sarcophagus lid from the tomb of Hor-em-Heb. Additional items on display include a 'false door' from a mortuary temple and small selection of statues and other objects.

The layout and lighting in the exhibit make photography difficult. It is not bright enough for flashless photography and the mummy tomb section is behind glass.
