About

Established in June 2010 at the KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, University of Manchester, the Ancient Egyptian Animal Bio Bank Project is a centralised database of mummified animal material from museums in the UK and overseas. The concept, developed to follow on from the International Ancient Egyptian Mummy Tissue Bank, will combine known records with new research to broaden current knowledge and increase understanding of the specimens, and how they were born out of the religious beliefs of the time.

This blog is intended to share updates about the project and the subject in general. Anyone wishing to contact the team can do so using the email address supplied.
