3D Petrie Museum

We love this new site from The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at UCL. With a 3D viewer, you can virtually handle some of their highlight objects.

Mystery of the Manchester Museum spinning statuette

This is too good – we had to share it. A Middle Kingdom statuette on display at the Manchester Museum has been inexplicably spinning in it’s exhibit case. To get to the bottom of this, museum staff set up a time lapse camera, which captured the movement over the course of a week. Check it out by clicking on this link.

Mummy playlist

If you’ve been by the Artifact Lab, you may have heard some music playing – and it may have been from our mummy playlist. The playlist includes classics such as Dead Egyptian Blues by Trout Fishing in America, The Bangles Walk Like an Egyptian, and I’m a Mummy by the Fall.

You can view this playlist by clicking here. If you have any suggestions, leave us a comment!
