For our readers in the United States–specifically those of you located along the Mid-Atlantic–we wanted to inform you of an exciting, new exhibition, which just opened at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia. Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb features over a hundred objects, on lease, from the permanent collection of the British Museum. The exhibition showcases various items related to the ancient Egyptian rituals of death and burial, as well as other splendid artifacts, rarely seen outside of Great Britain. You can read more about the exhibition as well as view objects by clicking here.
