Exhibition exploring how Egyptologist Giovanni Battista Belzoni (1778-1823) found the tomb of Seti I (father of Pharaoh Ramesses II) comprising ten vividly painted chambers decorated with thousands of hieroglyphs, and Seti's elaborately carved white alabaster sarcophagus. The sarcophagus was removed by Belzoni and eventually purchased by John Soane in 1824, who placed it in the Sepulchral Chamber at the heart of the Museum. This exhibition explores the history of the artefact and its discovery and includes a high-resolution 3D digital scan of the sarcophagus.
