Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead to journey through the afterlife

Those interested in history and the ancient Egyptian beliefs about life and death have been told about a new exhibition which is opening at the British Museum.

Journey through the afterlife: ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead will show-off the attraction's collection of papyri, which is made up of information which gave the dead the information to achieve eternal life.

Modern-day digital media and recent research will also be used to interactively interpret the findings

Those wanting to take the opportunity to view the rare and fragile artefacts have from November 4th 2010 to choose from a number of hotels in London, before the event close on March 6th 2011.

Furthermore, the exhibit's creator John H Taylor is inviting people to have an exclusive breakfast at the museum's Court Restaurant on November 13th, before treating his audience to a short talk and tour around the display, according to the Guardian.
