Virtual Lecture with an Egyptologist: “Sex, Art, and Death in Greco-Roman Egypt”

The exhibition Golden Mummies of Egypt explores multicultural expectations for the afterlife using more than 100 objects from the Manchester Museum’s world-renowned collection. This virtual lecture by Dr. Campbell Price interrogates the functions of the exhibition objects, assessing the impact of the expectations of modern viewers and evaluating the particular seductive attraction of painted portraits and gilded mummies.
