Major new exhibition reveals new discoveries about ancient lives in Egypt and Sudan.

The British Museum has always sought new ways to explore its collection, using the latest scientific techniques to shed new light on ancient cultures. This May new research on one of the most-popular areas of the collection – ancient Egyptian and Sudanese human remains or ‘mummies’- will be revealed through a ground-breaking interactive exhibition ‘Ancient lives, new discoveries’.Sponsored by Julius Baer with support from our technology partner Samsung, the exhibition uses state-of-the-art technology to allow visitors to delve inside mummy cases and examine the bodies underneath the wrappings, bringing us face to face with eight people who lived in the Nile Valley thousands of years ago. The exhibition will open on 22nd May and run until 30th November 2014.

大英博物館新展覽《古代生活新發現》5月22日正式和大家見面了,這個展覽主要是展示了運用當今最新科技對木乃伊進行研究的最新成果,這些來自幾千年前的木乃伊背後的故事得意在不斷的研究中被揭示出來,為我們當代人描繪了一幅生動的古代生活場景圖。

這次展覽當中展出的木乃伊大多來自埃及和蘇丹,有很多都是積極稀有和珍貴的藏品,比如2歲男童的華貴木乃伊,和羅馬時期的不知名男子的木乃伊等,而且值得一提的是,展覽運用獨特設計的交互系統,讓觀眾可以更為詳盡的了解木乃伊的局部細節和背景知識。展覽通過實物和電子交互屏幕同時再現了木乃伊的研究成果,每位觀眾都可以以“抽絲剝繭”的方式來觀看木乃伊的各個層面,可以說是同類木乃伊展覽當中最為”親民”的一個。
