The Book of the Dead was not a single text, but "a compilation of spells designed to guide the deceased through the dangers of the underworld, ultimately ensuring eternal life." This remarkable digital exhibit from The British Museum is designed to complement an in-situ exhibit at the institution. Visitors to the site can view a video introduction to the collection, and then look at some highlighted items from the exhibit. The site has an excellent blog with posts from the exhibition curator John Taylor. Also, the site includes information for teachers, some of which can be used without visiting the physical collection.
