The mummy of Takabuti has resided in the Ulster Museum, Belfast for over a hundred and fifty years, but it is only comparatively recently that modern scientific techniques have been able to reveal details about the life of Takabuti, an elite 25th Dynasty lady from Thebes. The study day brings together a number of experts who have examined the mummy of Takabuti and who will present the results of their investigations. What have these studies been able to reveal about life, death and preparations for the afterlife in ancient Egypt?
