We’ve created an activities and resource pack aimed at children studying history and music at Key Stage 2 (7-11 years).

You can download the pack here: SoundsOfRomanEgyptSchoolResourcePack

This pack contains supplementary information and activity sheets relating to the contents of the exhibition – it’s suitable for both school visits and families.

The exhibition runs until the 8th June 2019 (please note the museum is closed over Easter), however the pack includes all the identifying UC numbers for the artefacts in the collection, so the activities can still be completed after the exhibition ends. The objects can be viewed online via the museum’s catalogue:
