Exhibition: Journey Through the Afterlife: Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, British Museum, London, until March 6, 2011.

Billed by the British Museum as a once in a lifetime experience – and they should know as their exhibitions are stunning – Journey Through the Afterlife: Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead is a must-see for you and your pupils.

Do hurry if you want to go along with your class as the exhibition's selling out fast. Limited slots are still available for school groups. Click on the link for booking information and downloadable educational resources.

We’ve got exclusive Culture24 video footage of John Taylor, curator of Journey Through the Afterlife: Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead Curator, introducing the Tomb of Katabet and the longest Book of the Dead in the world in Inside the Book of the Dead at the British Museum.

There's also our British Museum embarks on journeys to the Afterlife with Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead.
