The Book of the Dead

4 Nov 2010

BBC News November 1st (see www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11669904 ) has a video of the Egyptian Book of the Dead - a sequence of pages of papyri that appear to open one after the other. In reality the papyri are very fragile and one of them is 37 metres in length - so this is a succession of images. Still, very useful and well worth looking at.
