As a bioarchaeologist, Professor Ronika Power has dedicated her life to death. Join Ronika as she provides unique reflections on research, methodology and ethics, and how dying in Ancient Egypt helps us to better understand the lived experiences of people from the past, and connect with them as individuals.

Following a delightful Egyptian-inspired breakfast, Professor Power will guide you through Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs before it opens to the public for the day – and share with you some of her favourite objects from the exhibition.

Your ticket includes:

  • Light Egyptian-inspired breakfast (set menu)
  • Expert presentation in an intimate setting followed by Q&A session with the audience
  • Exclusive out-of-hours access to Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs
  • 20-minute bespoke tour of Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs presented by our expert host
