The Book of the Dead is a series of spells designed to ensure a safe journey through the ancient Egyptian underworld – the imagery of The Judgement Scene epitomises that journey. Interpret this spell without reading hieroglyphs simply by understanding who the eight important gods and goddesses in this scene are and what they are doing!
This session is recommended for Year 7s. Three activities include a card matching game and a replica object handling session completed in pairs, and a group discussion considering a Book of the Dead spell. The session can be completed in a single period.
