Exhibition: Egypt - Beyond the Tomb going to Auckland

The exhibition is on its travels again, opening this week in Auckland Museum (New Zealand, North Island):

"This extraordinary international touring exhibition follows the story of Keku, an Egyptian woman who lived 2700 years ago, as she makes the perilous journey through the underworld. Drawing on over 200 ancient Egyptian burial treasures from animal mummies to a magnificently decorated sarcophagus (coffin), Keku’s story offers a fascinating insight into the mysterious death rituals of this age-old civilization."
