Virtual Saturday Sampler Tour | Egyptian Burial Practices and the Afterlife

Saturday, May 1, 2021
2:00-3:00 PM
Saturday Sampler tours are back! We've missed you and are thrilled to be offering our Saturday Sampler tours virtually. Join us over Zoom to explore the Kelsey Museum from the comfort of your home.

The theme of this week's tour is "Egyptian Burial Practices and the Afterlife."
The ancient Egyptians believed in a happy and eternal afterlife, and their burial practices reflected this. Mummification preserved the bodies of the deceased so they could enjoy the food and grave goods buried with them. Decorations on tomb walls depicted banquets, harvests, and other lovely scenes of what might lie ahead. This Zoom tour will examine some aspects of ancient Egyptian burial practices using artifacts from the Kelsey's collection as well as images of artifacts in several other museums.
