The Papyrus of Ani which is thought to date back to 1800BC is the largest and most beautiful of all the Egyptian funery scrolls. Known widely as the Book of the Dead it is an astounding collection of the writings that were placed in tombs as a means of guiding the ancient Egyptian soul on its journey to the afterlife.The text which was written by Egyptian Priests outlines the progress of a soul into the afterlife beginning with mummification and culminating in the beautiful and terrifying ritual of The Weighing of the Heart. It also contains spells and rituals to help the mummified corpse on its perilous voyage.We follow the story of this tremendous document from its creation near the site of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes to its re-discovery and theft in 1887.
