The open conference Nov 2 2021 is connected to a restricted access Training Workshop taking place 3-5 November 2021 - See the call for application!

The Papyrus of Ani (TM 134357 ) is one of the most impressive examples of the so-called Book of the Dead, a kind of guide to help deceased in the afterlife. It was acquired by the egyptologist Budge in the late nineteenth century and sold to the British Museum, where it is still kept today. Dated to the 19th Dynasty and written in cursive hieroglyphs for the scribe Ani, it is particularly well-known for its colorful illustrations and its size (over 23 metres long, now cut in 37 sheets). da Trismegistos Gallery: https://www.trismegistos.org/index_gallery.php?tex_id=134357
