Take a 360 Tour

Rulership and religion were intermingled in ancient Egypt, as the pharaoh was considered the “living god, Horus” and priests often exerted considerable political influence. This gallery features ritual objects and instruments used in ancient Egyptian worship and objects related to such important rulers as Akhnaton and Cleopatra VII.
