Event description

Description

The souvenir of wealthy travellers, mummified cadavers of ancient Egyptians were not confined merely to museums but became a popular feature of salons and lecture theatres throughout London during the mid-nineteenth century. This lecture places the practice of mummy unwrapping within its social, cultural and historical contexts, as a fascinating example of forgotten London.
