|Life in Ancient Egypt
to Life in Ancient Egypt, a companion online exhibition to Walton Hall of Ancient
Egypt at Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
Carnegie Museum of
Natural History has acquired Egyptian artifacts since its founding and
now holds about twenty-five-hundred ancient Egyptian artifacts. The most
significant of these objects, over six hundred of them, are displayed
in Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt.
In the hall the artifacts
are displayed in relation to the daily life and traditions of the people
who made them, so that the objects are seen in the context of the culture. To present a cohesive picture of ancient Egyptian society, its technology, its social system, and its beliefs, we have arranged the objects in several thematic areas. Life in Ancient Egypt, however, presents the themes in a slightly different order than the hall.
