It includes 68 authentic Egyptian artefacts including jewellery carvings, writing implements and fabric along with three replicas — a mirror, wig and sarcophagus) — and a model of a boat, on loan from the largest Egyptian collection in Canada. The exhibition is divided into 10 centres: introduction to ancient Egypt, personal adornment, make-up and perfume, feeding the household, buildings large and small, family life, education, religion, funerary religion and the afterlife” – via Niagara This Week.
