Welcome to the great Egyptian empire! Find out exactly how it felt when Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. We will take you back to Ancient Egypt and show you what they wore and how they lived. Just why did all the rich people put wax cones on their heads at parties?
Find out why were the Gods were an important part of society. Get introduced to several Egyptian Gods. Most noteworthy was Ra. He was the Sun that sails across the sky each day. Also, in addition to this Egyptian people believe he dies each night and sails back through the underworld. We explore the creation story and visit Atun, the first God to walk the earth. We’ll show you what he created when he spat and when he sneezed.
Finally, you will learn about the hierarchy of Egyptian society; who was able to read and write. We show you the correct way to mummify your Egyptian loved ones. This is an important process as it helps them to reach the afterlife. However, if their heart is to heavy, the Gobbler may just stop their journey.
