About this Event

The Book of the Dead is found in Egyptian tombs as a means to get to the afterlife. As well as being written as a series of spells on papyri or linen it also featured in tomb paintings and on coffins. In this workshop we will explore ancient Egyptian coffin fragments depicting spells from the Book of the Dead.

Mae Llyfr y Meirw i'w gael mewn beddrodau Aifft fel modd i gyrraedd y bywyd ar ôl hynny. Yn ogystal â chael ei ysgrifennu fel cyfres o swynion ar bapyri neu liain roedd hefyd yn ymddangos mewn paentiadau beddrodau ac ar eirch. Yn y gweithdy hwn byddwn yn archwilio darnau arch hynafol o'r Aifft sy'n darlunio swynion o Lyfr y Meirw.
