The new galleries, befitting of a world-class collection of Ancient Egyptian antiquities.
The Egyptian Galleries at Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum have re-opened to applause, with stunning new displays and exhibits never seen before.
The popular section of the museum hosts a world-class collection of more than 1,000 objects. A two-year, £1.5 million project of refurbishment, conservation and research has now been completed to enrich the experience of the museum’s 300,000 annual visitors. 
“We are delighted that the latest stage in our ongoing programme of gallery improvements has reached a successful conclusion,” said Museum Director Duncan Robinson, “and that the Museum is now able to offer visitors an enhanced experience of one of the most popular areas of its collections.”
Daily life, religious beliefs and burial practices of this most fascinating of ancient peoples are all explored in the galleries, as is the celebrated splendour of the Pharaoh’s court. Magic and superstition, writing, carving and drawing, dress and adornment are all looked at in themed sections. 
Visitors will experience the dimly-lit atmosphere of an Egyptian tomb at the heart of the displays, where coffins, mummies and funerary ritual objects are on show.
“The refurbishment of the Egyptian galleries has afforded an invaluable opportunity not only to re-display the collections in a contemporary and dynamic way, and to research and conserve numerous objects,” said Dr Lucilla Burn, Keeper of Antiquites, “but also to provide for visitors of all ages a more coherent and enjoyable experience, rich with information about the exhibits and the culture they represent.” 

In depth research was enabled by the temporary closure of the galleries. A major focus was the coffins, which have undergone structural analysis. Human and animal mummies were CT-scanned at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, to shed light on their contents and condition. The intriguing results are to be announced later in 2006.
A special programme of themed events will be held over the opening week (until June 2 2006) including talks, tours and workshops. The mummy-wrapping sessions aren’t just for children, either! 
Funding for the project came from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the DCMS/Wolfson Foundation Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund and other donors. 
“The successful outcome of the project is a fitting testament to the commitment and enthusiasm of staff and volunteers, funders, supporters and collaborators,” added Dr Burn, “all of whose contributions are acknowledged with gratitude.”

Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh
Fechas de la exposición: Marzo 28 - Julio 9, 2006

La primera reina de Egipto. La primera exposición monográfica sobre la vida de la faraona egipcia será inaugurada el martes en el Metropolitan de Nueva York con obras procedentes del Museo de El Cairo.

El Metropolitan de Nueva York inaugura el martes la primera exposición que se organiza sobre Hatshepsut, la reina que se convirtió en faraona e instauró una de las épocas más doradas del antiguo Egipto.

La muestra reúne estatuas, muebles, joyas, utensilios y ajuares que proceden de varios museos y retratan a una gobernante menos conocida, pero que manejó mejor los asuntos de Estado que la más famosa de sus sucesoras, Cleopatra.

La exhibición agrupa obras que prestan por primera vez el Museo Egipcio de El Cairo y el Museo de Luxor, además de piezas que la institución neoyorquina recolectó en campañas arqueológicas en las décadas de los años 1920 y 1930 en el País del Nilo.

Hatshepsut aparece como reina, faraona y esfinge en inscripciones y esculturas que reflejan el esplendor de su reinado de veintiún años, de 1503 al 1482 antes de Cristo, que marcaron el inicio del renacimiento del Imperio Nuevo, del 1540 al 1070 antes de Cristo.

"Su Gobierno fue tan importante para Egipto como el de Isabel I para Inglaterra", se afirma en el catálogo de la muestra, que permanecerá abierta al público hasta el 9 de julio.

"No fue la primera ni la última, pero sí la más brillante reina que gobernó el Antiguo Egipto", dijo a Efe el director del Consejo Supremo de Antigüedades de Egipto, Zaki Hawas, que viajó a Nueva York para la inauguración.

Hawas, máxima autoridad arqueológica de su país, apuntó que "la exposición llega en el momento perfecto para que en estos tiempos se sepa que el Antiguo Egipto fue gobernado también por mujeres, y que una de ellas se convirtió en faraona".

Hija favorita de Tutmosis I y principal esposa de Tutmosis II, Hatshepsut inicio su mandato como reina regente a la muerte de su marido y hermanastro, y después, ya como faraona, asociada al trono con su hijastro y sobrino, Tutmosis III, entonces un niño.

Durante su reinado se construyó como nunca antes en el Imperio Nuevo, se restauraron monumentos destruidos durante la invasión de los hicsos y Egipto reanudó el comercio con Oriente Medio, las Islas del Egeo y el País del Punt, en las actuales Somalia y Eritrea.

La prosperidad que propiciaron esos intercambios impulsó el arte y la arquitectura, de lo que es mayor exponente el templo funerario de Beir El Bahri, que Hatshepsut se hizo labrar en una montaña cerca del Valle de los Reyes, frente a Luxor.

En contraste con Cleopatra, que vivió 1.500 años después y ha estado siempre envuelta en la leyenda, Hatshepsut permaneció casi ignorada hasta principios del siglo XX, cuando su vida y obra comenzó a atraer el interés de estudiosos y novelistas.

La razón que le indujo a proclamarse faraona, y a vestir como un hombre y usar barba postiza, constituye, sin embargo, un enigma sobre el que los egiptólogos no se ponen de acuerdo

La mayoría piensa que lo hizo para ganarse el respeto de su pueblo, pero no todos comparten esa opinión.

"No creo que se presentara como un hombre para poder gobernar", dijo a EFE la jefa del Departamento de Egiptología del Metropolitan, Dorothea Arnold, en alusión a que, antes de Hatshepsut, reinas como Sobekneferu y Nicotris, y después la propia Cleopatra, lo hicieron sin necesidad de proclamarse faraonas.

"Creo que fue algo sólo simbólico. Hatshepsut no dejó de aparecer en estatuas e inscripciones con su nombre femenino, nunca ocultó su feminidad", subrayó la especialista sobre el interés que tenía en ser recordada como "una mujer de gran belleza" quien ha pasado a la Historia como el quinto faraón de la décimo octava dinastía. Una belleza que la exposición neoyorquina pone de manifiesto pese a que Tutmosis III, su sucesor y quien posiblemente la asesinó, intentó destruir todas las representaciones de Hatshepsut, e hizo lo posible por borrar su memoria.

Turín expone el mapa más antiguo de Occidente

 papiro_artemidoro002.jpg (48923 bytes) papiro_artemidoro004.jpg (76712 bytes) papiro_artemidoro005.jpg (70987 bytes)
papiro_artemidoro003.jpg (80109 bytes)El célebre papiro de Artemidoro, considerado el mapa geográfico más antiguo de Occidente, ha sido expuesto por primera vez al público este miércoles en el Palacio Bricherasio de Turín, al norte de Italia.
Artemidoro de Efeso, renombrado geógrafo griego del siglo I antes de Cristo, viajó por todo el Mediterráneo, pasando por España y terminando en Egipto, sin olvidar Italia, donde fue embajador. Realizó 11 rollos de papiro considerados como los mapas más antiguos jamás encontrados.
Uno de esos rollos, que sirvió para envolver a una momia hace 1.800 años, fue descubierto por un equipo de arqueólogos en los años 90.
El papiro fue comprado luego por un coleccionista egipcio y pasó por diferentes dueños hasta llegar a la Compañia de San Paolo, una fundación privada italiana, que lo compró por 2,7 millones de euros.
papiro_artemidoro001.jpg (70538 bytes)De 2,70 metros de largo, el papiro está muy estropeado, pero los 50 trozos amarillos que lo componen dejan percibir perfectamente, a ambos lados los trazados del contorno de los países, al igual que dibujos de animales reales y fantásticos, de caras, manos y pies humanos.
"Este papiro es único. Se trata del mapa más antiguo de Occidente del que tengamos conocimiento y nos ha permitido reconstruir ciertos episodios de la historia del arte clásico", aseguraron los profesores Claudio Gallazzi y Salvatore Settis, durante la inauguración de la muestra.
La exposición, titulada 'Las tres vidas del papiro de Artemidoro', presenta paralelamente, hasta el 7 de mayo en el mismo Palacio, otras 140 grandes piezas procedentes de una treintena de museos europeos y americanos que ofrecen a los visitantes una visión completa de los usos y costumbres de la época en que fue realizado ese documento.
El papiro de Artemidoro será expuesto posteriormente en diversos museos del mundo. En dos o tres años será instalado definitivamente en el Museo Egipcio de Turín.

 

Con la exposición "Los tesoros hundidos de Egipto" comienza el 13 de mayo un acontecimiento importante en el Martin-Gropius-Bau. Muestra testimonios de culturas pasadas que se creían perdidos, que se encontraron en expediciones submarinas frente a las costas del Mediterráneo en Egipto. Los más de 500 artefactos, que podrán ser vistos hasta el 4 de septiembre proceden de las inundadas ciudades del Mediterráneo Heraclion y Canopus como así también del antiguo puerto de Alejandría. Por primera vez estas valiosas piezas tendrán acceso al público en Berlín.

Exhibition of Rare Material from Wilbour Library

Egypt Through Other Eyes

The Popularization of Ancient Eygpt, presenting more than thirty books, ranging from the commercial to the commemorative, focusing on Western fascination with ancient Egypt will be on view in the ancient Egyptian galleries of the Brooklyn Museum. The long-term installation, including many works that have never before been on public view, is the latest in a series of exhibitions presenting rare material from both the world-renowned Wilbour Library of Egyptology and from the Museum’s holdings of ancient Egyptian art.
After the publication of Description de l’Egypte, an account of the Napoleonic expedition to Egypt from 1798 to 1802, publications about Egypt proliferated because of advances in printing technology that made available larger and less expensive editions of travel and history books. Articles about Egypt frequently appeared in newspapers and periodicals, further spurring interest among a large audience that was captivated by news of discoveries in Egypt. Included in the exhibition is a remarkable illustrated color plate from a book by Giovanni Belzoni, the first known European to enter newly discovered Egyptian temples and tombs, depicting the Interior of the Temple at Ybsombul in Nubia, opened by Belzoni in 1817. Among the other works is an illustrated page by from the catalogue that accompanied an exhibition of Egyptian antiquities from the collection of Henry Abbott at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant Institute. Abbot’s collection was later transferred to the Brooklyn Museum and several of the objects illustrated in this plate are currently on view elsewhere in the Egyptian galleries.
Also included in this presentation are: a color plate of Cleopatra’s Needle in Manhattan’s Central Park from a deluxe limited-edition volume; chromolithograph plates from books by Emile Presse D’Avennes, whose work provided the first reliable images of Egyptian architecture; a promotional piece for a Thomas Cook & Son tour of Egypt; a book by George Robbins Gliddon, one of the first Americans to write and lecture about ancient Egypt; and an illustration by Charles Dana Gibson that depicts an early excavation at the Temple of the Goddess Mut, where the Brooklyn Museum and Johns Hopkins University currently maintain an excavation site. 

 

"Immortal Pharaoh: The Tomb of Thutmosis III"
Fecha: Octubre 2005
The exhibition will display an exact replica of the burial chamber of Thutmosis III. It will also feature artefacts from the Museum of Antiquities in Basel in Switzerland and the Kestner Museum in Hanover, Germany.

Fayyoum portraits on display

Dr. Zahi Hawwas has opened an exhibition in the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square showing a number of Fayyoum portraits. The exhibition is set to go on display for two months. It includes 12 portraits and 7 busts considered of major significance. Dr. Hawwas said that the first of such portrait replacing mummy masks and busts date back to the first century A.C. Pharaohs used them to help their souls recognize their bodies in the after-life.  Dr. Hawwas added that although these portraits could be found in many places, they are known as the Fayyoum portraits, since it was there that they were first discovered.  Director of the Museum, Dr. Wafaa Al-Seddiq said that the exhibition is displaying a wealth of monuments.  Visitors will become acquainted with the various forms of garments, jewels and even hair styling of the time. The exhibition has an educational role. It highlights the features of the Greco-Roman period of the Egyptian civilization. A book will be distributed for use by the blind.

RECENT FINDS BY RUSSIAN EGYPTOLOGISTS TO BE DISPLAYED IN CAIRO, MOSCOW 
Russian archeologists hope to display in Cairo and Moscow their finds excavated in Egypt in recent years, said Galina Belova, Ph.D. (History). She reported about on-going talks on staging an exposition at the National Museum in Cairo. Galina Belova who heads the Centre of Egypt Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which was set up in 1998 and opened its branch in Cairo in 2000, has been engaged in excavations in Egypt since 1995. Over the past five years, Russian expeditions have been busy digging in Luxor's cache of pharaoh mummies, investigating into Memphis, examining the temples and settlements in Delta and penetrating the necropolis and a medieval Christian monastery in the town of Al Fayyum. Since 2003, the Russians have been involved in underwater archeological prospecting into the 20-kilometer area close to the Alexandria coastline. Russian restorers have spent the last year rehabilitating wall paintings in the church of al Muallaka in Cairo. "The contribution by Russian archeologists has been appreciated by the Egyptian side, which is proved by the proposal to participate in the restoration and studies of three more ancient Coptic churches," said Belova. Outstanding Russian Egyptologist Vladimir Golenishchev, whose collection of almost 6,000 artifacts is kept at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow and the Hermitage in St.Petersburg and who made 64 expeditions to the country of the ancient civilization, once dreamt of a purely Russian expedition to carry out excavations in Egypt. From the mid-50s, Egypt hosted distinguished Soviet scholars Mikhail Korostovtsev and Boris Piotrovsky while now research is carried on by the Center for Egypt Studies.

 

Exposición.- Mummies: Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt
Among the peoples of the ancient world, the Egyptians occupy a unique position with their approach to death and the possibility of resurrection, particularly since so much of the evidence that has survived over thousands of years comes from a funerary context. The largest and most comprehensive collection of ancient Egyptian funerary material outside of Cairo is housed  at The British Museum. As part of its joint venture with the British Museum, the Bowers Museum has drawn upon this world-famous collection of mummies and funerary objects to present Mummies: Death and the Afterlife in Ancient  Egypt.Treasures from the British Museum, opening April 17, 2005. The extensive exhibition features 140 objects, including 14 mummies and/or coffins, and is the largest exhibition of its kind to be shown by the  British Museum outside of Britain. The exhibition will run through April 15, 2007. Mummies: Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt focuses on embalming, coffins,  sarcophagi, shabti figures, magic and ritual, amulets, papyri, as well as the process of mummification. The exhibition illustrates in depth the story of the fascinating Egyptian ritual of preparing and sending the dead to the afterlife, complete with  furnishings created specifically for an individual's coffin, such as spectacular gold jewelry  and a wooden boat to transport the dead into the underworld. According to one of the exhibition curators, Assistant Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum Dr. John Taylor, the Egyptian mummies and coffins in  this exhibition are of the highest quality and have not been exhibited for many years. "This exhibition will provide the ultimate look into the world of  mummification," Dr. Taylor said. "We speak of death as one of the great  rites of passage of human existence. Whether we believe that life continues beyond death, or ends at that moment, or whether we admit that we do not know, death is a door through which we must all pass."

Paris to host Nubian Exhib.

- "Nubia Campaign: Yesterday and Today": Exposición en la sede de la UNESCO, en París, sobre la campaña de salvamento de monumentos nubios -
An Egyptian Antiquity delegation will soon fly to Paris to participate in the "Nubia Campaign: Yesterday and Today" exhibition. It has been organized by UNESCO headquarters in Paris on 13 April. This exhibition gives a retrospective look at the Nubia Campaign, which began with a drive to safeguard Nubian monuments and has since seen the opening of the Nubia Museum in Aswan and the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Cairo. The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawas,  said that the exhibition, comprised of videos, books and documents, illustrates the enduring and fruitful relationship between UNESCO and Egypt in cultural heritage. Hawas also commended Egypt's restoration of approximately 3,000 previously smuggled antiquity pieces back to the country. These had been recovered from all over the world, including Belgium,  Switzerland, UK and Germany. Hawas noted that a new antiquity protection draft bill had been drawn up by the State Council and is to be submitted to the People's Assembly for  discussion and approval. He revealed that for the increased protection of Egyptian antiquities, 33 new antiquity stores had been equipped with the latest electronic equipment to prevent smuggling.  In addition, 3,000 new guards have been appointed to antiquity sites. According to Hawas, visits to Egyptian antiquity sites have added LE70 million to tourism revenues in the past two month alone.

Mostra "L'enigma di Harwa. Alla riscoperta di un capolavoro del rinascimento
egizio"

Europa » Italia » Torino
15 dicembre 2004 - 23 gennaio 2005
Questo dicembre a Torino, a due passi dal Museo Egizio, si scoprirà "L'enigma di Harwa", un misterioso personaggio, alto sacerdote ma anche potentissimo dignitario, vissuto tra la fine dell'VIII e l'inizio del VII secolo a.C. quando l'Egitto era nelle mani dei faraoni nubiani della XXVdinastia. Diciotto reperti provenienti dal Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, dal Louvre, dal Museo Egizio di Torino e da altre importanti raccolte ne daranno testimonianza tangibile. Ma sarà anche una mostra sempre diversa da tornare a vedere: si potrà infatti assistere in diretta da Luxor, giorno dopo giorno, ai faticosi e delicati lavori che fanno riemergere quel complesso e variegato momento storico. Una doppia postazione Internet collega infatti la mostra con il sito archeologico sulla riva occidentale del Nilo, davanti al tempio della regina Hatshepsut a Deir el-Bahri e sarà accessibile sia da Palazzo Bricherasio, sia da casa propria, grazie a un codice d'accesso personale che verrà consegnato a ogni visitatore.

Egyptian mummy [575 - 850BC]

In 1998, the Museum's only adult Egyptian mummy was removed from display during gallery refurbishment. Conservation staff had the opportunity to carry out a thorough examination of the mummy and coffin and identified two a jor deterioration problems - the presence of salts on the surface of the linen wrapping and flaking paint on the wooden sarcophagus. Identification of materials was undertaken and treatment begun to stabilise problem components. Thorough testing of adhesives and application methods was undertaken before securing the flaking paint to the wooden substrate using a cellulose ether dissolved in a slow-evaporating solvent. Areas of fragile wood on the coffin were consolidated with an acrylic resin and fills made where necessary using  a combination of paper pulp and a cellulose ether. A variety of poultices were tested with the aim of solubilising and removing salts from the bandages using a minimum of water. A cellulose pulp proved most effective and was applied successively to small areas, gently removing the surface deposits.  As conservation treatment proceeds, a volunteer Egyptologist is working to decipher the hieroglyphs which decorate the coffin. Her task is made even more difficult by severe fading of the inscriptions, but she hopes to find clues to the identity of the mummy and even details of the person's life and death. Further information will be gleaned when the mummy undergoes a CAT-scan. This non-destructive examination may reveal the sex, age at death  and state of health of the mummified person. The age of the mummy is uncertain. Samples of linen and wood from the bandages and coffin have been radiocarbon dated at the University of Waikato. Results ranged from 575-850BC, but these figures relate to the  plant from which the linen came and the wood from which the coffin was made. Since both wood and linen were recycled in ancient Egypt, the dates give us only a rough guide to the mummy's age. These estimates now need to be  balanced against the stylistic and inscription evidence of the mummy and coffin. Once conservation treatment is completed, the mummy will go back on display  in a dedicated gallery on the Ground Floor. It will be displayed in a nitrogen-filled display case originally designed by Shin Maekawa of the Getty Conservation Institute. This low-oxygen atmosphere will help to retard further deterioration of the mummy and coffin and ensure the lengthy  conservation treatment does not need to be repeated

Muestra sobre culto al sol en Egipto llegará a México

México, (EFE).- Una muestra del culto al sol durante la época de los faraones egipcios que contiene 150 piezas procedentes de diversos museos de Alemania y que nunca ha salido de ese país, llegará a México a fines de marzo próximo. El Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) señaló en uncomunicado que la exposición será inaugurada el 31 de marzo en el Museo Nacional de Antropología. El responsable mexicano de la muestra, Miguel Ángel Fernández, explicó que la exposición estará dividida en 13 secciones, cada una de las cuales abordará un tema específico en relación al culto solar que ofrecerá un panorama sobre los antiguos egipcios basado en el desarrollo de sus creencias, técnicas y deidades. Entre ellas figuran, las formas del Dios-Sol, la escalera al cielo, la pirámide, el sol y el inframundo, los sacerdotes, el Dios-Luna, el cielo, y Alemania y el redescubrimiento del antiguo Egipto. "Cada sección estará planeada para ofrecer un panorama de las etapas de la Dinastía 18 del Antiguo Egipto, que fue la más vistosa y en la que se acrecentó el culto al sol", dijo Fernández, investigador del INAH. La exposición "Faraón: el culto al sol en el antiguo Egipto" también permitirá a los mexicanos observar las analogías culturales, artísticas, religiosas y arquitectónicas entre las culturas prehispánicas de México y el Egipto faraónico, a través del culto que ambos rindieron a elementos de la naturaleza y del cuerpo humano", indicó. Ambas culturas construyeron pirámides, esculturas cúbicas y de relieves, el sol fue un elemento religioso central en sus civilizaciones y abordaron el concepto de dualidad, entre el día y la noche, sol y luna, vida y muerte y  masculino y femenino, entre otros. Entre las piezas que podrán ver los mexicanos figuran un obelisco con jeroglíficos de 3.5 metros de altura, la cabeza colosal del rey Tutankamón,  la denominada "Cabeza verde", la estatua de Sesenmut y una figura del dios Horus de 1.63 metros. También vienen el sarcófago de Anch-Hor, de seis toneladas de peso, un papiro del periodo Tolemaico de 9,85 metros, una cubierta de momia policromada una estatuilla en alabastro de Akenaton y una esfinge monumental en granito rojo. El INAH destacó que como parte del intercambio cultural entre mayo y agosto  de 2004 se presentó en Alemania la exposición "Aztecas", que congregó a 150 mil personas.

Tutankhamun Treasures to Go on Display in Dome

Treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamun will come to Britain for the first time in 35 years, it emerged today. The pharaoh's gold crown will be among 50 artefacts excavated from his tomb to go on show at the Millennium Dome. More than 130 treasures from the Valley of the Kings, all between 3,000 and3,500 years old, will make up the exhibition. One of the gold and inlaid canopic coffinettes which contained the boy king' s mummified internal organs will be included in the show. Artefacts from other royal graves including the intact tomb of Tutankhamun's great-grandparents Yuya and Tuyu will go on display at the Greenwich attraction. Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, said the golden artefacts had not left the country for nearly 30 years. "Since the discovery of his tomb in 1922, Tutankhamun has captured the hearts of people around the world. Buried with him were treasures beyond the imagination, giving us a glittering glimpse into the past," he said. The 2007 event will be the first of its kind in Britain since 1972 when the British Museum in London hosted a Tutankhamun exhibition. A British Museum spokeswoman today said visitors queued in the street to get tickets for the hugely successful 1972 show. "It still remains one of the most popular exhibitions in this country, attracting 1.7 million visitors," she said. A spokeswoman for Anschutz Entertainment Group, which takes ownership of the Dome in 2007, today confirmed that the Tutankhamun exhibition was coming to the Greenwich attraction. "That kind of calibre of fantastic exhibition is just one example of the type of thing that is going to be on offer," she said. The spokeswoman said the Egyptian treasures would go on display at some point in 2007 although exact dates have not yet been confirmed. The Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibition starts a 27-month tour of the United States in June this year. It is organised by National Geographic, AEG Live Exhibitions and Arts and  Exhibitions International, with cooperation from the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities. Tutankhamun's undisturbed burial chamber was discovered in Egypt's Valley of the Kings by the English explorer Howard Carter in 1922. A 26,000 capacity sports and entertainment arena contained within the Dome is due to be completed by spring 2007.

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs

"After almost three decades the ancient Egyptian tomb treasures of King Tutankhamun will be making a return visit to U.S. shores. A new exhibition, 'Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs,' will travel the U.S. for
27 months starting in June 2005. Stops will include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Florida's Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, and the Field Museum of Chicago. Over 130 funerary objects that have rarely or never traveled broad before are part of the exhibit. The 3,300-to-3,500-year-old artifacts come from the tombs of 18th-dynasty pharaoh Tutankhamun and others buried in the Valley of the Kings."

Ancient papyrus on show

One of the oldest maths textbooks in existence will delight young visitors to Birmingham's Museum and Art Gallery.

The 3,000-year-old document is part of a new exhibition of Ancient Egyptian wonders starting on Saturday.

Called the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus, it is the first of a series of loans to Birmingham from the British Museum.

It offers the solutions to 84 mathematical problems encountered by administrative and building workers in the Ancient Kingdom of Egypt.

City culture chief Coun Nigel Dawkins, said the loan made a valuable addition to the museum's own collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts.

"This piece of papyrus is irreplaceable and will be a source of fascination for people interested in ancient Egypt," he added.

* The Papyrus exhibition will run from Saturday, September 11 until March 13, 2005. An Egyptian Weekend of family events is also planned on November 6 and 7.

Perfumes exhibition planned

- Planeada una exposición sobre perfumes y maquillaje en el antiguo Egipto -
Perfumes and Make-up in Ancient Egypt" is the title of an exhibition to be held in Sharm El-Sheikh in a few weeks' time. The ancient Egyptians took much interest in perfumes and cosmetics. The exhibition will give a thorough idea aboutthem since pre-historic times  until the Late Age.The items on display, said Ingie Fayed, supervisor of the exhibition, will show how the ancient Egyptians explored the surrounding environment and extracted from its plants oils and scents and fats from the animals. The ancients used stones for jewellery and for making cosmetics. Perfumes,explained Fayed, had a close relationship to religious rituals and were used on sacred occasions, in mummification and funerary rituals and was part of daily traditions. The perfumes the ancients made show how advanced they were in chemistry, shesaid, adding that they also made, medical prescriptions of ointments that treat women's diseases and help in child and mother care. Fayed explained that the ancient Egyptians believed that aromatic oils wereliquids coming from the gods, on which they depended for the renewal of their lives. Egypt was so advanced in perfume making that the historian Bellini said that Egypt's scents were the best and the most expensive.
