Secret Egypt: Unravelling Truth from Myth
Should we beware the mummy’s curse? Were the Egyptians obsessed with death? Did aliens build the pyramids? Opening at Weston Park in October, Secret Egypt will challenge some of the enduring myths about ancient Egypt perpetuated through films, books and other popular media.
Bringing together 150 objects from animal and human mummies to ceramics and jewellery, the exhibition will invite visitors to explore a range of fascinating archaeological evidence to revaluate what they understand about this remarkable civilisation.
