The Serapeum of Saqqara

From the reign of Amenhotep III to the end of the Ptolemaic Period, the Apis bull, the ‘Herald of Ptah’, was buried in a complex of vaults at Saqqara – later known as the Serapeum.

This Monday (9th November) Aidan Dodson explores the history of the Apis burials and their contents with photographs of areas not open to the public!
