Death on the Nile: Uncovering the afterlife of ancient Egypt has opened at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Lighting design by Michael Grubb Studio.
The first major exhibition for the Fitzwilliam’s 2016 bicentenary celebrations goes beyond the images of mummies, pharaohs and mystery often associated with ancient Egypt. It shows how coffin design developed over 4,000 years, reflecting significant changes both in the status of affluent ancient Egyptians and in the gods that were important to them.
The free to visit exhibition has received significant press coverage and is available to view from February 23 – May 22.
