In this centenary year of the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb with its famous death mask and coffins, such spectacular golden burial equipment is by no means unique and was also produced for other members of his dynasty. From the huge gold coffin of the great queen Ahhotep to the burial sets of royal in-laws Yuya and Tuya, Jo will also discuss her own work re-examining Lady Hatnefer and her gilded mask, the burial sets of Kha and Meryt, and the anonymous lady represented by Wigan’s own spectacular gold coffin face.

Tickets include refreshments.
