Today I went to Manchester Museum to look at the Egyptology exhibition to gain primary research for 'The Body' project.
I was wowed by how well the mummies exhibited were preserved.
Some were from around 700 BC! I loved looking at the mummies, their tombs, all the egyptian artifacts and reading about the mummification process and why the Egyptians thought it so important to preserve certain bodies. I think my visit has really helped me gain a better understanding of Egyptian Mummies and I feel a lot more confident with my project now I've gained this knowledge.
These are a few photographs I took at the exhibition.
They're not very good quality because you weren't allowed to take photographs and the woman looked scary, wasn't getting on the wrong side of her! haha.
