The Collection of Book of the Dead Manuscripts in Marischal Museum, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. A Comprehensive Overview.

The Marischal Museum of the University of Aberdeen houses a fine collection of more than 60 individual copies of the Book of the Dead written on papyrus and mummy linen. The present survey, which is the first detailed treatment of the Book of the Dead material in Marischal Museum, starts with a short introduction to the history of the collection of Egyptian antiquities (N. Curtis) and continues with an overview of the Book of the Dead documents (papyri: I. Munro, mummy wrappings: H. Kockelmann), specifying names of owners, spell sequences and measurements. Moreover, it discusses a number of peculiari-ties found in some of the manuscripts.
