World Museum has one of the UK's largest collections of mummified animals. Join Egyptologist Ashely Cooke and find out how we've been discovering more about these animals, why the ancient Egyptians mummified them, and how 19.5 tons of mummified cats were shipped to Liverpool in 1890 to be crushed up for use as fertiliser. 

Admission to this talk is £7 and tickets can be purchased in advance below.
