Take a private tour of the British Museum guided by an archaeologist, getting up close and personal with the stories behind the morbid and bloody aspects of ancient human civilisation. Iron Age bog bodies, the Aztec god of the dead, Anglo Saxon ship burials, Sumerian death pits, and the little-known Victorian craze of cannibalising ancient Egyptian mummies are just some of the topics that you’ll take in, with plenty of time to ask questions and take photos to share your newfound knowledge with friends and family. This tour runs the gamut of funerary rituals, human sacrifice, afterlife beliefs, and even how an ancient skull helped solve a modern murder case! Designed for anyone interested in the darker side of our human story, while sections of the tour may be grisly, all aspects are delivered with both respect and a true passion for what we can all learn and appreciate about our ancestor’s attitudes towards death and dying.
