Book of the Dead papyrus of Nakht

The Brtitish Museum houses the papyrus in 22 frames.
Good photos of almost all of the frames are available on the BM’s website EA10471-1 to 22
Total length 14.3 metres, height +/- 36 cm

For study and research I recommend using the zoomable pictures from the BM because most have a higher resolution than in the slider. Use the slider for the overview
