Animal mummies of many species survive in their millions. Their huge numbers are a testament to the scale of devotional practice in Egypt between around 750 BC and AD 100.

Dr. Campbell Price, Curator of Egypt and Sudan at Manchester Museum, describes the religious function of animal mummies, the history of Europeans acquiring animal mummies from Egypt and the scientific attempts to understand this mummified material.
