Now we can do some preparation before the event:
Dr Glenn Godenho, who is an Egyptologist from the University of Liverpool, will be leading the session has sent me the following. Have a go if you can!
This is from Dr Glenn: Now, if we want to get this right, we’ve a few important things to do:
1. Mummifying our orange
If you want to follow along with me as I attempt to mummify an orange, you can find the materials needed and the steps to take at this website: https://www.yac-uk.org/activity/mummify-an-orange. You’ll need a grown-up to help. Don’t worry if you can’t get the materials together. Feel free to sit back and watch me get in a mess, and have a go in your own time.
2. Storing the gooey bits
When we’ve made our mummy, which involves taking out all of the gooey bits from inside the orange, we’ll need some special containers to keep all of the gooey bits in. If you want to make your own ‘Canopic Jars’, here are some handy instructions: https://www.yac-uk.org/activity/make-your-own-canopic-jars.
3. Giving our orange a hieroglyphic name
Our next job is to give our Orange a hieroglyphic name. I’ll explain how Egyptian hieroglyphs work, and then you’ll all have a go at writing names in hieroglyphs. So, make sure you have a pen and paper ready for this bit. Here’s a really useful hieroglyph activity that you can use to practice: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/archaeology-classics-and-egyptology/garstang/hieroglyphs-worksheet.pdf.
4. Tour of a real ancient Egyptian tomb!
Finally, I’d like to take you all to Egypt and give you a tour of a tomb. Unfortunately, it’ll be a bit tricky to get us all on a plane at the moment, so I’m going to give you a virtual tour using this incredible internet resource: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=d42fuVA21To.
I’d also like to show you some of the objects that our Egyptian orange should be buried with. We can’t sit around a table handling items, but I can show you some amazing 3D photographs that you can explore from your own computer screens. Here’s the awesome website that we’ll use to play with some real ancient Egyptian things: https://sketchfab.com/search?q=egyptology&sort_by=-relevance&type=models.
So, there is lots for you to explore before, during or after the session.
See you all soon!
