Subtitle: Egyptian Funerary Artifacts in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology
Year of Publication: 1995
The methods that modern museums use to preserve their ancient Egyptian artifacts parallel in many ways the strategies that the ancient Egyptians themselves used to preserve the bodies and possessions of their dead. This illustrated book, catalogue of a Kelsey Museum of Archaeology exhibition, explores the parallels between Egyptian funerary practices and modern museum conservation through a series of short essays that concentrate on groups of artifacts in the Kelsey Museum collection.
