The new Wrexham County Borough Museum & Archives is situated in one of Wrexham’s landmark buildings.

The Egyptian Exhibition. Ends September 5th 2015

The British Museum’s Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan have teamed up with staff at Wrexham Museum to curate a special exhibition called ‘Writing for Eternity: Decoding Ancient Egypt’.

The exhibition, uses the iconic scripts of Ancient Egypt – the well-known hieroglyphs and the lesser known Hieratic, Demotic and Coptic – to reveal what life was like in the Nile Valley and Delta two to four thousand years ago through a collection of amazing objects from the world-famous collections of the British Museum.

‘Ancient Egypt has produced an astonishing variety of inscribed objects giving us valuable insights into one of the greatest ancient civilisations.

The exhibition will illustrate 4,000 years of writing history through a selection of well-known but also surprising objects, such as the scribe’s pen and inscribed pieces of jewellery. The diverse selection of artefacts reveals how the Egyptians solved daily problems but also what they thought would happen after death.’
