History, Literacy, Science, Cross Curricular
A member of staff or freelancer leads this activity.
An action-packed adventure where pupils step into the tomb of the museum’s mummy, seek real Ancient Egyptian treasures, mummify Suny the Egyptian boy and magic up your own amulet charm.
Pupils will address the question 'how do we know about the Ancient Egyptians?' by looking at some of the things that were left behind and examine the importance of beliefs about death and the afterlife to the Ancient Egyptians.
