Egyptian pyramids and a mummification as History Club explores Ancient times

To end the remarkable series of archaeology sessions the History Club has had this term at St George's Junior School, Chertsey Museum treated them to one last fascinating session - Ancient Egyptian pyramids.

First of all, the pupils found out how the pyramids were built and what their purpose was. In groups, the pupils then carried out their own mummification, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the mummy herself! 

To end this series of workshops, the pupils compared the different cultures they have looked at this term – Mayan, Aztec, North American and Egyptian.

It has been a wonderful term of exploration for the History Club and all of the pupils are looking forward to what next term has to offer.
