Words & Debate
The Victoria Gallery & Museum are teaming up with the University of Liverpool’s Continuing Education department to bring you a gallery talk. Come along and experience the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian Underworld.
You will be guided through the gallery exhibit and will learn about the landscape of the Underworld, the helpers of the deceased (‘shabtis’), and the many amulets of protection that were used in the Underworld and in everyday life.
Find out about the Negative Confession and the Lake of Fire and what happened if the deceased did not pass the Judgement in the Hall of Osiris. Would you have passed the Judgement?
Give it a go yourself, if you dare!
Talks at: 18.00 – 18.30, 19.00 – 19.30, 20.00 -20.30
