The Secrets of Ancient Egypt

The secrets of the ancient Egyptian civilisation have been revealed in an exhibition by the Australian Museum in Adelaide, South Australia (in conjunction with the National Museum of Antiquities, Netherlands).

This excellent exhibition brings together a wealth of Egyptian relics; including hieroglyphs, mummified animals, amulets and jewellery as well as current scientific research on mummies.

More than 160 extremely rare Egyptian objects have been brought to Australia for the first time.

Artefacts include the mummified body of Keku, a wealthy Egyptian woman who died 2,700 years ago.
