Walk like an Egyptian! Our fun packed workshop concentrates on the Ancient Egyptian ritual of mummification. Dressed in full Egyptian costume, students will learn about the embalming process from start to finish and even get to try their hand at embalming! They will explore objects from the museum’s Egyptian collection and have a go at writing in hieroglyphics on real papyrus which they can take back to school. To finish off, students can get creative and design their own Egyptian death mask!

Key learning outcomes:

Students will get a real sense of Egyptian times and the achievements of this amazing early civilisation.
