Jens Klocke, a restorer from Hildesheim who specializes in mummies, grave furniture and Ancient Egyptian objects, presents his work.

Almost no one spends as much time with coffins and mummies as a restorer trying to preserve these objects. Upon looking closely, mummies and all the other objects reveal the story behind moments that happened thousands of years ago, taking us on a journey through time to cultures long extinct.

Jens Klocke answers questions such as:

How dangerous is the pharaohs' curse for the restorer?

Is his work disturbing eternal peace or is he performing a good dead for the souls of the dead?

Lecture in German.
