Exhibition: Question for Immortality opens in Taiwan

Focus Taiwan

History buffs in Taiwan will not need to travel to Europe or Egypt to get a peak into the life and culture of ancient Egypt when an exhibition featuring more than 200 artifacts, including an unwrapped mummy, opens in Taipei June 12.

Titled "Quest for Immortality, " the exhibition has 268 relics spanning 6,000 years. Most of the items are on loan from the Bolton Museum in the United Kingdom, including some that have never been exhibited outside the museum before, according to the China Times Group, the main organizer.

The Oriental Museum of Durham University and Jewry Wall Museum, also in the U.K., have also contributed items from their collections to the exhibition.
