Mummification at Maidstone Museum!29/11/17
On Friday 24th November, Year 3 headed down to the Maidstone Museum for a day of mummification and Egyptian fun. We spent some time handling artefacts and looked at the differences between genuine Egyptian artefacts and replicas.
Then we discussed and explored the process of mummification. To start we had cards showing the different stages and had to put them into the correct order.
After that, it was our turn! We carried out the process of mummification on an orange. Our favourite part was scooping out the brains (or just the pulp!).
