The Journey Beyond

The Journey Beyond

What was life and death like in Ayrshire thousands of years ago, while 2,500 miles away the ancient Egyptians were burying their mummified dead in pyramids and tombs? What did they believe happened when they died? This exhibition brings together genuine ancient Egyptian coffins and other artefacts, and prehistoric weapons and tools from the south-west of Scotland. With important loans from National Museums Scotland and objects from East Ayrshire Council's own collections, the exhibition looks at aspects of life and death in these different cultures and runs from 8th May - 28th August 2010.
