The Tomb: Ancient Egyptian Burial

The Tomb presents the story of one extraordinary tomb, built around 1290BC and reused for over 1000 years.

The Tomb: Ancient Egyptian Burial

About The Tomb: Ancient Egyptian Burial

The tomb was constructed in the great city of Thebes shortly after the reign of Tutankhamun for the Chief of Police and his wife. It was looted and reused several times, leaving behind a collection of beautiful objects from various eras. These will be displayed alongside objects found in nearby tombs, giving a sense of how burial in ancient Egypt changed over time.

The tomb’s final use occurred shortly after the Roman conquest of Egypt, when it was sealed intact with the remarkable burials of an entire family. The exhibition comes ahead of the new Ancient Egypt gallery, opening at the National Museum of Scotland in 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Tomb: Ancient Egyptian Burial are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
