Turin Egyptology collection online

A closer look at the project to add images of the Turin Egyptian Museum's Egyptology collection to the Eternal Egypt website: "The archaeological website Eternal Egypt, which displays Egypt's 7,000 years of history, was launched two years ago to make virtual access to Egypt from across the globe possible. It displays objects from collections in various Egyptian museums -- including the Egyptian, Graeco-Roman, Coptic and Islamic Art museums -- and will grant visitors information on every era of Egyptian history. Eternal Egypt combines the most important locations, artefacts, people and stories from Egypt's history into an interactive multimedia experience. . . . In this new section the museum in Turin will pay for its contribution and will provide all the information and data needed for each selected object, while CULTNAT will provide a team of experts to post the selections on the web."
