Introduction to Egyptology


Aspects of Life and Death in Ancient Egypt.  Delve into the life and death of the ancient Egyptians.  Consider where they lived and how they were buried.  Examine the role of royals, mortals:- men, women and children. Key concepts of medicine and magic will also be considered, in addition to recent excavations. A visit to the Garstang Museum, University of Liverpool, provides the opportunity to handle ancient artefacts.
