Join Science Museum Research Fellow Dr Angela Stienne and curators from National Museums Liverpool for an interactive discussion on the routines and rituals museums go through as they decide whether or not to display human remains.

They’ll discuss the ethical dilemmas of curating collections such as mummies in the Ancient Egypt gallery, and how we can interpret their stories. Book free tickets via liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/lightnight
