Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and every muslim must make a pilgrimage to Mecca at least one time in their lives. This major new exhibition at the British Museum will chart the history of this journey, exploring how pilgrims have tackled it through the centuries.

On display will be a number of objects, textiles and manuscripts, which will trace the spiritual significance of the rituals that have remained unchanged since the 7th-century.

The British Museum is one of the largest and most comprehensive museums in the world, housing a vast collection of over seven million objects from every period of human history. The objects come from every continent and include pieces from Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, Africa and the Americas.

The British Museum’s new exhibition will introduce you to eight people from ancient Egypt and Sudan whose bodies have been preserved, either naturally or by deliberate embalming. Using some of the latest technology, the exhibition will build up a picture of their life and death, and how their bodies managed to survive the passage of 4,000 years.

 

Ming: 50 years that changed China – 18th September 2014 to 5th January 2015
