    A keyring inspired by the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead.

    ‘Book of the Dead’ is a modern term for a collection of magical spells that the Egyptians used to help them get into the afterlife. These spells were written on papyrus and originate from Hunefer, a scribe writing in Egypt around 1280 BC. the text was accompanied by drawings that illustrated the spells.

    This charm keyring features a section from these papyri and is ideal as a small history gift. The British Museum is printed on the reverse - a subtle indicator of its exclusivity.
