Mummies of the Manchester Museum by Dr Campbell Price

800px-The_Manchester_Museum (1)Campbell is one of my very favourite speakers – lively, energetic, enthusiastic and informative; and as Curator of the Manchester Museum is in the perfect position to give us a great insight in the Museum which holds some 20 mummies and coffins.

In this lecture Campbell presented the latest research on aspects of this collection for the understanding of ancient Egyptian expectations about the afterlife.

Campbell illustrated some of the highlights of the mummy collection and gave us some fascinating insights into the research and what exactly was revealed by it – much of it most unexpected, some of it amusing, and all of it fabulous.

This was a great lecture – typical of Campbell’s style, and which me wanting more!  Come again Campbell – please!
