Death on the Nile deepens our understanding of the lives and concerns of ancient Egyptians as they prepared themselves for death and burial.

Building on the growing trend in Egyptology to use scientific analysis and imaging to examine artefacts, this new volume focuses on one hundred objects from the Fitzwilliam Museum's renowned Egyptian collection. In addition to shedding new light on the workshops of ancient Egypt, Death on the Nile traces the religious beliefs, economic concerns and political allegiance of the people for whom the coffins were created.

Behind these remarkable objects is a human story of daily concerns, aspirations and practical realities.
