The Welshpool Mummy

The Friends of the Egypt Centre in Swansea will be hosting a talk by Pauline Norris on Manchester University on the 14th March 2012.

'The Welshpool Mummy: How research is really done' will look at how in 1960, the Borough Council of Welshpool in Powys gifted the cartonnage of Meresamun, Chantress of Amun, to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

Pauline will explain how research has been undertaken in uncovering the story of the mummy's journey to Oxford from a small town in Wales.
