Exhibition: Norwich shroud to return to Norwich for event


The Norwich Shroud, which was the subject of some fascinating posts on the British Museum blog, is to return to Norwich in April:

Two of the most significant objects in Norwich Castle’s collection will be on display at a study day which will explore the way the Ancient Egyptians dealt with their dead.

The event will detail the latest research into the shroud of Ipu - a rare shroud which was recently unravelled at the British Museum after being in storage at the castle since the 1920s.
