I absolutely love the British Museum , if I could have been an archaeologist or Egyptologist then I would have been in heaven.
I came to see the #8mummies which sees the unwrapping of #8mummies but not the unwrapping you might think of but by way of 3 D scanning and you see everything in a 3D visualisation.
The exhibition is achieved by showing what is underneath each individual mummy and their life story as or how the British Museum believes it to have been.
Staring into the face of the past, the Egyptians would have very much been at home with the likes of Hello magazine.
Ancient lives really aren't so different from our own in the sense that we project an image of ourselves on occasions the image we wish to perceived from.It was incredibly moving to see the #8mummies laid out before me and to see their stories. The mummies span over 4,000 years from the Predynastic period , the Christian era as well as mummies from sites in Egypt and the Sudan.
These #8mummies were living, breathing people with entwined lives and they call to us now to listen to their stories , the British Museum is highly respectful of the remains. The British Museum goes beyond the mask to show you the lives of the mummies as they people.
Egyptians had bad teeth that was an overwhelming aspect of the exhibition , I am scared of the dentist but after seeing this I am going to be running as humanly possible to see a dentist.
Ancient lives , new discoveries is at British Museum till the 20th November booking is essential .
