Read the blog post about this piece here.

This piece tells a story of colonial violence, looting and wealth extraction – the account of 300,000 sacrificed and mummified cats discovered in the Egyptian desert in 1888. Excavated, ground up, and sold by the tonne in a Liverpool auction house to be spread on English fields as fertiliser.
