Ancient Egyptians

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

Look closely at the objects in the galleries to discover more about ancient Egyptian beliefs, technology and everyday life.
