In this World Museum workshop students will be introduced to the process of mummification, an integral aspect of ancient Egyptian culture.

Through an interactive approach, which involves working on a life size dummy mummy, students will learn details of how the body was preserved and will come to appreciate the cultural meanings of the preservation process.

Students will be encouraged to develop and communicate their knowledge and understanding through speaking, listening, and reading activities.
