Discover the wonders (and dangers!) of an ancient desert tomb
This fantastic resource is best viewed full screen on an interactive whiteboard. Pointing at different areas of the screen allows children to move the keyhole and reveal sections of the picture. By examining what they can see through the keyhole, children will build up a picture of the room and its owner, via the different objects and details.
It’s a wrap!

Cats were popular domestic animals in Ancient Egypt and also considered sacred. This pharaoh was clearly a pet lover as he has chosen to take his feline friend to the next world by having it mummified.
