The exposition “Egyptian Mummies. The secret of the eternal life” explores the complexes rituals related with the death and the life after death in the ancient Egypt, that during centuries have intrigued and fascinate studious and globetrotters from all over the world. This exceptional exhibition presents the treasures of the Rijks museum Go Oudheden of Leiden (Holland), known all over the world by it’s collections of Egyptology.
The idea to “die and be born again” demanded to conserve the body of the deceased and, for this reason, along the centuries the ancient Egyptians were perfecting the art of the mummification. This exciting subject analyses and explains by means of pertinent objects of different burial chambers and periods. The modern technologies have allowed the scientists and the archaeologists to expand their knowledges on the illnesses, the alimentary habits and the conditions of life in the ancient Egypt. That’s why the sample includes images of computerized tomography and radiological plates that the museum has realised to all the included mummies in the exhibition.
