The collection is part of the Neues Museum. History[edit] Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology Phoebe Hearst met George A. Reisner on her first trip to Egypt in early 1899. While the American Egyptologist had no excavating experience at this time, Hearst had faith in his abilities and sent him to work immediately. With several assistants and a large and skilled Egyptian crew, Reisner explored the sites of Coptos and Shurafa (1899–1900), El Ahaiwah (1900), Deir el-Ballas (1900–1), Naga ed-Deir (1901–4), and Giza (1903–5). Much of the work was salvage, following in the wake of looters.

Roemer-Pelizaeus Hildesheim The third part of the permanent exhibition focuses on some of the ancient Egypt antiquities, that can be seen as the most important source of knowledge about this culture: The belief in an afterlife. Organized into the areas “Man” and “Animal”, the exhibition picks up the two most important forms of burial, because in Egyptian belief the eternal accommodation of animals, which represent various Gods, is as important as that of men. Impressive examples show the architecture of private people’s tombes, among them the offering chapel from the Mastaba of Uhemka. Coffins, mummies, masks from different eras, amulets and shabtis represent the ideal burial equipment and illustrate the process of mummification. Special attention is given to the individual, which splits up into different aspects of identity after death and has to overcome many dangers to get into the fields of the blessed.
