The Book of the Dead is a unique collection of funerary texts from
a wide variety of sources, dating from the fifteenth to the fourth
century BC. Consisting of spells, prayers and incantations, each
section contains the words of power to overcome obstacles in the
afterlife. The papyruses were often left in sarcophagi for the dead
to use as passports on their journey from burial, and were full of
advice about the ferrymen, gods and kings they would meet on the
way. Offering valuable insights into ancient Egypt, The Book of the
Dead has also inspired fascination with the occult and the
afterlife in recent years.
