Discover how changing medical practices shaped new ways of thinking about archaeology, mummies and Ancient Egypt. From the medical study of human remains came ideas about history and civilisation, while in the public imagination, scientific investigations into mummies inspired dread, horror and fear such as the curse of the mummy. Join local historians for this talk to discover the truth behind the legends of Egyptian mummies.
