P4 NMS Egyptian Tomb Visit

During our visit to the National Museum of Scotland we enjoyed learning all about the tomb of ordinary Egyptian people, a police captain and his family. We looked at coffins, shrouds, statues, amulets and other amazing artefacts.

Following that we had a great time taking part in a “Death in Ancient Egypt” workshop. We tried out some gory mummification techniques and held some ancient objects, the oldest being 3000 years old!

If you want to know more about the exhibition you can visit the museum website.

What a super way to finish up our topic. We are all budding Egyptologists now!
