Journey Through The Afterlife: Ancient Egyptian Book Of The Dead
  • Exhibition
  • "Follow the ancient Egyptians' journey from death to the afterlife in this major exhibition focusing on the Book of the Dead.

    The 'Book' was not a single text but a compilation of spells designed to guide the deceased through the dangers of the underworld, ultimately ensuring eternal life.

    Many of the examples of the Book of the Dead in the exhibition have never been seen before, and many are from the British Museum's unparalleled collection. These beautifully illustrated spells on papyrus and linen were used for over 1,000 years, and the oldest examples are over 3,500 years old."
