DISCOVER the secrets of Ancient Egypt at Salisbury Museum.

A British Museum touring exhibition, Writing for Eternity: Decoding Ancient Egypt, opens on Saturday.

Having toured first to Wrexham Museum and then to Tullie House in Carlisle, Salisbury Museum is the third venue to host the British Museum’s famous collection, which explores aspects of one of the world’s greatest ancient civilisations.

This exhibition tells the story of 4,000 years of writing, featuring a range of hieroglyph and cursive writing on a wide range of materials, such as stone, wood, papyrus, linen, parchment, pottery and metal.
