Embalming: theory and practice

Thursday 2 October 2014, 13.30
BP Lecture Theatre
Free, booking essential

Ancient Egyptian embalming techniques are popularly known, but where does our information come from and how does recent research challenge our assumptions? Project Curator Marie Vandenbeusch explains what the ancient texts say on embalming practice, what experts expect to find through CT scanning processes, and what the evidence leads us to conclude about this ancient process.
