The Manchester Museum houses over 16,000 objects from ancient Egypt and Sudan, making one of the largest collections in Britain and one with world-class holdings in a number of areas. At the end of October 2012, the Museum opened its refurbished Ancient Worlds galleries, putting many more objects on display than ever before.
This blog provides updates on our activities, information on our objects, events, behind the scenes curatorial work, Museum policies that affect the Egyptian and Sudanese material, teaching and research links with the University.
