Hairstyles of a Mummy – A visit to Ancient Egypt via The British Museum

A captivating visit to ancient Egypt …. viewing over a dozen mummies and ancient Egyptian art all in a single hall of the British Museum, London. If there is only ONE thing one has time for on a visit to London, then it has got to be the Egyptian hall!

Everything about their art is enthralling … including their hair art!
