RTS members were treated to an evening of exploration through the treasures and collections of the Manchester Museum at a North West event in mid-July.

Hosted by museum director Nick Merriman and Egyptologist Campbell Price, the tour offered a behind-the-scenes look at the wealth of history held beyond the public eye at the institution in its vast archives.

Ancient Egyptian mummies, Roman ruins, jewellery and artefacts from across the globe were on display as members were given exclusive access to the inner workings of the museum while their hosts discussed the items in great detail.

A cocktail reception in the museum’s great hall ended an inspiring evening at a superb location.
