Description

Egyptian textiles from the Cadbury Research Library will be exhibited in the main library with four sections of Egyptian funerary cloth dating from 300-30BC, recently conserved by the British Museum.

On display for the first time in many years, the cloth depicts scenes from the Book of the Dead. These early textile sections are held by the Cadbury Research Library as part of the Mingana Collection of Middle Eastern Manuscripts, collected in the 1920s.
