Egyptologist who revitalised a treasured archaeological collection. The distinguished Egyptian prehistorian Barbara Adams, who has died aged 57, was, for more than 36 years, a curator at the Petrie museum of Egyptian archaeology at University College London, which houses the amazing collection of over 80,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts gathered by the great British archaeologist Sir Flinders Petrie (1853-1942). In 1965, when Adams was appointed as assistant at the museum, the Petrie collection was still recovering from wartime vicissitudes. While there, she became fascinated with Egyptology.

Using special processes, the Egyptians removed all moisture from the body, leaving only a dried form that would not easily decay. Mummification was practiced throughout most of early Egyptian history. It was important in their religion to preserve the dead body in as life-like a manner as possible. So successful were they that today we can view the mummified body of an Egyptian and have a good idea of what he or she looked like in life, 3000 years ago. The earliest mummies from prehistoric times probably were accidental.
