Between Heaven and Earth: Birds in Ancient Egypt
In October Bologna becomes the capital of Ancient Egypt. Here, in the city of the two towers, the exhibition will bring to life a unique and long-lived civilisation that has always been a source of fascination throughout the world. This is the Egypt of the Pyramids, of the Pharaohs, of diverse and powerful deities. It is also the Egypt of sensational discoveries, compelling archaeology, of passionate collectors and deep scholarship. The exhibition that is soon to open at the Archaeological Museum of Bologna will be an informative and scientifically rigorous experience. But it is also unprecedented event on the international scene. The collection of the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, the Netherlands, which is one of the top ten in the world, will be integrated with that of the Bologna museum, which is the best in Italy in terms of the number and the quality of its artefacts.

The Sacred Ibis Threskionis aethiopicus once lived in Egypt and is depicted in many ancient Egyptian wall murals and sculptures. It is also found as mummified specimens at many burial sites and played a significant religious role, in particular during the Late and Ptolemaic periods. The ibis represented the god Thoth, god of wisdom, knowledge and writing, and was considered the herald of the flood . It was of practical use to villagers as it helped to rid fish ponds of water snails that contained dangerous liver parasites . However, it is now extinct throughout Egypt because of gradual aridification through swamp drainage and land reclamation .

Ancient Egyptian textual evidences suggest they may have been raised in dedicated large-scale farms. We analysed and compared the mitogenomic diversity among Sacred Ibis mummies to that found in modern Sacred Ibis populations from throughout Africa. The ancient birds show a high level of genetic variation comparable to that identified in modern African populations, contrary to the suggestion in ancient hieroglyphics or ancient writings of centralized industrial scale farming of sacrificial birds.
