Febuary and March 2017 meetingsMar 192017
February 18th we looked at the procedure for Mummifying and pyramids.
In the course of which we mummified oranges and filled them with virtually the same mix of salt and sodium bi-carbonate they used in Egypt . To be resurrected at the May meeting to see how they have shrivelled and dried up and to discuss the effect of different temperatures/places on preservation.
In March we were given a tour of the archives in Canterbury cathedral by the staff and then a guided tour looking at the history of the site.
