Animal Mummies Revealed
LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND  •  World Museum  •  14 October 2016 - 26 February 2017

The animal mummies, including cats, birds, jackals and crocodile are pulled together from collections across the UK, from Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester.

The exhibition explores the practice of preparing animals as votive offerings to the gods. Millions of animals were religiously sacrificed and mummified in ancient Egyptian times. The mummies are on display alongside related cultural artefacts, including statues, photographs, journals and archive material showing us how the animal mummies were excavated and selected by archaeologists and museum experts, and how they were collected and distributed as curios and souvenirs, particularly in Britain
