Egyptology Lecture

The ’Mummy Pits’ of Ancient Egypt [Amendment to published programme] Tessa Baber will discuss the ’Mummy pits’, containing mass burials of huge numbers of bodies, and once a common feature of Egypt’s burial landscape. Descriptions of these pits occur in the accounts of early travellers and reveal their exploitation for souvenirs and for the manufacture of mummy-based products like fertilizer.
