Mummification Workshop

Sunday, September 25, at 1:30 p.m.

The Ancient Egyptians believed that the preservation of the human body was critical to safe passage into the afterlife. Beginning with simple burials in the desert sands, the Egyptians created new methods of mummification that prevented the decay of the body for thousands of years. Exquisitely preserved, these Ancient Egyptians provide deep insight into the beliefs and lives of Ancient Egyptians while simultaneously challenging us to explore even deeper questions.

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum is the current home and resting place of the human remains of four Mummified Ancient Egyptians. Come learn their stories and much more at our Mummification workshop on September 25 at 1:30 PM.

Admission is free with paid entry to the museum.

Participation in this workshop will count towards the Junior Archaeologist Program graduation.
