Lyme - ’Gifts for the Gods’ - Animal Mummies Revealed

In association with the Manchester Museum and their Egyptology specialists, an exciting exhibition about mummified animals is coming to Lyme. In the early 1800s, Thomas Legh travelled to unexplored areas of Egypt, taking part in digs and excavations along the way.
To celebrate, this exhibition will present and explore ancient Egyptian animal mummies, prepared in their millions as offerings to the gods.

The display will include mummified specimens such as jackals, crocodiles, cats and birds! Booking Not Needed.
