The chapter explores the association between Ancient Egypt and preserved objects, material wealth and the idealised body, and how these are connected to belief in an afterlife. The chapter outlines the book’s overall aim of reassessing material from 1880 and 1911 excavations at Hawara, Egypt in order to critically explore their significance in their original setting, and examine how modern (often Western) interpretations of archaeological findings might shape the past to fit a different narrative.
