Lost pieces of the Book of the Dead recently surfaced in the holdings of a museum in Brisbane, Australia. I lost my mind with excitement.
Ms Bates said the Queensland Museum’s sections were donated and have been meticulously kept in the stores of the Museum for almost 100 years. ‘It is so gratifying to find that it is our own Queensland Museum team that have been the guardians of this tomb secret have perfectly preserved such incredibly fragile and rare artefacts for over a century.’ Ms Bates said the Queensland Museum would support future research into the Amenthoep ‘Book of the Dead’. ‘We’re proud the Queensland Museum will help close the book on this mystery,’ Ms Bates said.
