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.
