Fig.1: Margaret Murray at the Manchester Museum (photo: 1908).
Margaret Murray (1865-1965), who began work in Egyptology as an assistant to Flinders Petrie in the 1890s, later worked at the Manchester Museum. Here she has completed the unwrapping of a mummy, one of two brothers found at Rifeh by Flinders Petrie (shown in the photo at far left). The tomb of the two brothers included a major papyrus manuscript which Murray translated, published by the Manchester Museum in 1910.
