WORKSHOP 1 – Mortality and Mummies:

Using drama and role-play young people re-enact the burial rites of the pharaoh Tutankhamun using mummification, Grave goods and rites to create an absorbing & authentic ritual.

  • We learn about the process of mummification, why it was so important and how it prepared people for the afterlife

  • We finish by arranging the mummified remains in a sarcophagus along with burial goods and a ceremony to the gods to send the dead pharaoh on his way to the afterlife

 

WORKSHOP 2 – Precise Pyramids:

A stunningly creative and hands-on session where young people can examine ancient engineering and building whilst constructing their very own pyramid!

  • we use a selection of small pyramid models to examine the different types of pyramid layout, what they symbolised about the afterlife and how they protected their precious cargo
