A unique opportunity to get to know and create an Egyptian-style artefact.
Explore aspects of Egyptian culture, with introductory lessons in the classroom.
Assisted by an Egyptologist, students carefully observe the most significant finds and discover fundamental aspects of Egyptian culture.
A route through the funerary cult. From the embalmer’s workshop to the tribunal of the afterlife presided over by the god Osiris: techniques for preserving bodies, rites and practices to reach the green fields of the afterlife.
Ideal in combination with the themed workshop “Once upon a time in Egypt”.
Ideal in combination with the themed workshop “The search for the lost clue”.
Ideal in combination with the themed workshop “At the court of the Pharaoh”.
The workshops explore various aspects of Egyptian culture through practical activities with active and practical participation by the young people. The activities are held in teaching rooms, equipped with a large screen for projecting images with the support of computer equipment.
After a short introductory lesson, the pupils retrieve fragments of finds (reproductions) in specially prepared sand tanks. Working like real archaeologists, they work at cleaning the objects, measuring, drawing and filing them and finally write up an “excavation journal”.
The participants, divided into small groups, produce some simple artefacts working like Egyptian craftspeople. In this way they experience some of the everyday work of weavers, potters, goldsmiths and painters, experimenting with ancient materials and techniques.
Beds and stools, food and drink, clothes and wigs, makeup and tools: everything you need for eternal well-being! Kha and Merit’s grave goods enable children to discover objects over 3400 years ago, seeing how they were decorated and used.
