Golden Mummies of Egypt

with Greg Jenner and Dr Campbell Price

Join public historian and chart-topping podcaster Greg Jenner and Curator of Egyptology Dr Campbell Price for behind-the-scenes information on eight highlights of our special exhibition Golden Mummies of Egypt.

Greg and Campbell chat through the stories behind each item, when and where they are from, and how they might have been used.

Have you ever wondered…

Who was Queen Cleopatra? When was Alexander the Great? Why cover a dead body in gold? And how many things can you do with a massive pot?

Suitable for all ages, 7+

A new book co-authored by Greg and Campbell: Totally Chaotic History: Ancient Egypt Gets Unruly (Walker Books) is out in April!

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
