CC: WA State History Museum: Wrapped! The Search for the Essential Mummy

Recommended Posts



Wrapped! showcases more than 250 artifacts, including 18th- and 19th-century engravings, ancient amulets, kitten mummies, and coffin cases. It also examines the modern science of mummies, whereby imaging technology allows us to see a mummy without unwrapping it. A series of forensic portraits takes the imaging technology one step further, allowing visitors to see what these ancient people looked like in life.

Wrapped! will be on display through September 11, 2011. Organized by the Washington State Historical Society and the Akhmim Mummy Studies Consortium.


The display starts January 30th and I would suggest going sooner rather than later in case the museum does get moth-balled per current proposed budget cuts.
