Description

Death in ancient Egypt was a magical experience. There were gods to judge and guide, amulets and spells to protect, mummification to preserve, even shabtis to do your work for you in an idyllic afterlife. As well as ancient artefacts associated with this magic, Death Magic features natural history specimens: snakes, scorpions and scarab beetles, a human heart and brain, and the preserved head of a bull.
