Pathway to the Afterlife: An Interactive Event

The Egyptians had a vivid understanding of the afterlife and rich, complex rituals to ensure the soul (called the Ka) arrived there.

Join us for a mock Egyptian funeral, organized by Camosun College’s Anthropology of Death class. In exploring the various steps of the Egyptian funeral process, you will learn about the importance of mummification, why particular grave goods were included in the tomb and the elaborate ceremonies that helped transform the mortal pharaoh into a divine ancestor prepared for a journey to the afterlife and an eternity spent there. 

This interactive event takes place within and just outside the Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs exhibition, with a facilitated discussion at the end of the event.
