Description: Yale University’s extensive collections provide a framework for understanding the lives of Egyptians who lived 3,000 years ago. The artifacts on exhibit in Daily Life in Ancient Egypt include canopic jars, everyday utensils such as a mirror and make-up jars, animal mummies and ceremonial items. Of the two human mummies on display; one is 5,000 years old and was naturally mummified. An X-ray study of the other, a wrapped mummy, surprised researchers with evidence that he had been murdered.
