Ta-Kheru: Discovering the life of an Ancient Egyptian woman

Using CT scans and the latest medical visualisation techniques experts have been able to uncover insights into the life of Ta-Kheru, and Ancient Egyptian woman whose ceremonially mummified remains have been in the University of Aberdeen museums’ collections since the 18th century. The exhibition tells the story of Ta-Kheru, alongside an impressive holographic display of the CT scan and a facial reconstruction of The Lady of the House.

The exhibition had over 6500 visitors and was accompanied by a series of talks by specialists from the Roremer und Pelizaeus Museum and an expert in facial reconstruction.


This exhibition was on display from 18 October - 11 December 2018 in the Sir Duncan Rice Library Gallery.
