Grant helps museum launch new exhibition featuring Egyptian priest

The Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, UK, has been awarded £233,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to launch a new ancient world exhibition.

Unwrapping the Past will showcase the museum's mummified remains of Egyptian priest Iset Tayf Nakht.

A statue of Sekmet, the Lion Goddess, which has been loaned from the British Museum, will also go on display.

About 20 volunteers will be recruited to provide tours and sessions at the exhibition starting in June.
