Find our team on the gallery floor with a selection of objects from our handling collections.

For the Festival of Archaology we are looking at some of the explorers including John Garstang who worked to uncover the treasures of Ancient Egypt.

Come and explore some of these finds and discover why the ancient Egyptians began to practice mummification about 5000 years ago, how the dead were mummified and the rituals that ensured them a place in the afterlife.
