RAMM has a collection of nearly 600 objects from Egypt. Many of these were collected by amateur archaeologists and enthusiasts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Highlights of RAMM's collection include:
- Objects excavated and collected by some of the most famous Egyptologists including Belzoni, Flinders Petrie and Greville Chester.
- The mummy, coffin and cartonnage of Shep en-Mut.
- Objects which reveal daily life in Egypt from the Predynastic to the Medieval periods.
An exciting new study of RAMM's Ancient Egyptian coffins has just been published as part of the Egyptian Coffins in Provicincial Collections of the United Kingdom project. For more information about the Ancient Egyptian collections please contact us.
