The Secrets of Tomb10A: Egypt 2000 BC

Who needs Brendan Fraser and CGI effects to see Egyptian tombs and mummies? Instead, let the Museum of Fine Arts Boston take you on a tour of Tomb10A in Deir-el-Bersha, the final resting place of Djehutynakht, a provincial governor in Middle Kingdom Egypt, the period from 2010 – 1961 B.C. In 1915, archaeologists associated with the Museum spent a summer excavating the tomb and discovered possibly the largest assemblage of burial artifacts from the Middle Kingdom period. The find included jewelry, walking sticks, a huge collection of model boats, architectural miniatures, Djehutynakht’s coffin, and a mummified head, that might be Djehutynakht’s. Beginning in 2009, a Belgian team began retracing the original expedition’s path. This web exhibition includes contemporary and historic photographs of the tomb site and the results of CT scans of the head. There is also a section of zoom-able images of the coffin and the boats. A storage jar from the tomb will be opened during the exhibition, and visitors can sign up to get curators’
podcasts about its contents.
