Rare Ancient Egyptian shroud to be focus of study day

Two of the most significant objects in Norwich Castle’s collection will be on display at a study day which will explore the way the Ancient Egyptians dealt with their dead.

Dr Marcus Mueller, from Bonn, will talk about his study of the shroud, while Faye Kalloniatis, from the castle, will talk about how it came to be in Norwich.

Dr John Taylor, from the British Museum, will also present the results of his recent study into the decorated coffin lid and case of the mummy of Ankh Hor.

The study day - The Funerary Practices and Beliefs of Ancient Egypt - will take place at the castle on Saturday, April 28, between 10am and 5pm.
