November brings with it the opening of the Egyptian Book of the Dead Exhibition at the British Museum, so now is the perfect time to find your inner explorer and discover a wealth of Egyptian history. I have always loved the Indiana Jones films and any opportunity to find out more about the archaeology and artefacts of bygone eras brings me out in goose bumps, and it seems I’m not the only one.
Across the country countless museums and exhibits are dedicated to displaying the rich heritage of the Egyptians. From the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum to the immense gallery collections at the renowned Ashmolean in Oxford, our fascination with this ancient culture is only too apparent.
Now an exhibition I’m really looking forward to is coming to Manchester, the Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures displays over a 1,000 replica objects from the magnanimous boy king. While in the area I might pop across to the Ancient Egypt gallery at Liverpool’s World Museum.
Or if you’re feeling adventurous why not head out to the place where it all started and spend a week or so discovering the rich heritage Egypt has to offer.
