An Egyptian Way of Life Auckland War Memorial Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira. A great deal of what is displayed in museums and what we know about civilisations of the past is thanks to the work of archaeologists. This session puts learners into the position of archaeologists to examine the Museum's handling collection of Ancient Egyptian objects and replicas. Through hands-on discovery and questioning, students will learn about the Ancient Egyptian way of life exploring themes of language, religion, culture, belief, tools and technology. This session will challenge students’ problem solving abilities and encourage critical thinking.
