Fascinating! Ancient Egypt comes to Edinburgh

Fascinating Mummies at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh features objects dating back as far as 4000BC.

Visitors will be guided through rituals of death and the afterlife in ancient Egypt, with painted coffins and embalming equipment on display.

At the centre of the collection is the mummy of Ankhhor, a priest serving in the city of Thebes in around 650BC, which has never been unwrapped or subject to research.

The exhibition opens tomorrow and is the first in the museum's purpose-built space since it reopened in July last year after a £47.4 million refurbishment.
