Uncovering an Egyptian Tomb at the British Museum with Year 3

posted 22 Feb 2016, 10:15 by Boutcher PS
Kate Orr of the British Museum's Education team led a fascinating workshop for Year 3 today, giving us insights into the excavation of Tomb 99 at Luxor and allowing us to handle objects dating from as long ago as 2000 BC!  We discussed and ordered objects into a timeline, and then chose an object we would like to build an exhibition around.  Exhibition titles ranged from Ancient Make-Up to Life After Death - Year 3 will follow this up when they study the Ancient Egyptians in greater depth in the Summer Term!
