Museum uncovers mystery of ancient Egypt

The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, County Durham, UK, is stage an exhibtion called Amazing Egyptian, running from Saturday, July 2 until Wednesday, August 31 with doors open daily from 10am to 5pm.

The display will be set out to guide visitors along via the eyes of an embalmer named Lukman. He will tell about the Egyptians’ belief in more than one God and the rituals they felt they had to follow to reach the afterlife.

The display will explore the customs and traditions surrounding life and death in the land of the Pharaohs.

Amy Longstaff, the museum’s education officer, told the Darlington and Stockton Times: "One of our aims was to show that even the greatest Pharaohs believed that they had to appease the Gods to make a successful journey to the afterlife."
