20 Feb 2012 - 10 Jun 2012
'In Focus...' exhibitions are small temporary displays exploring elements of the museum and gallery collections in detail.
The culture and beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians continue to fascinate and amaze us. The complex pantheon of Egyptian Gods provides us with an insight into their beliefs about how the world around them began and worked, what would happen to them when they died and how they sought to cope with the trials and tribulations of daily life.
This small exhibition examines the attributes, personalities and mythology of the major Egyptian Gods through a selection of objects from the museums Egyptology collections.
