Eygyptian Visit Y3 & Y4

12th December 2018

We enrolled in a workshop; ‘Waking the Dead’. It was a little bit gory!   There was a model and we got to have a go at what it would be like.  We pulled all of the internal organs from the body using a metal hook, then we placed them in canopic jars. The organs stay in the jars forever, and are buried with the ‘mummy’. It was really interesting and a bit scary too. 

After the workshop, we explored the museum where we  analysed different fossils and amulets from Ancient Egypt.                                                          

Our favourite activity was the crack the code in hieroglyphics and the code was about the location of Anubis.    Anubis was the God of embalming and the dead.
