We  can find out information about ancient Egyptian people from the objects that they left behind. These objects are called artefacts.


Look at the selection of artefacts and make some inferences about what life was like in Ancient Egypt.

Look at the example of inferences below:

For each artefact, answer these questions:

1) What is this?

2) What do you think it is used for?

3) Where might this artefact have been found?

4) Who might it have belonged to?

5) What is it made out of?

6) What does this tell you about the Ancient Egyptians?

Mummification was a very sacred ritual in Ancient Egypt. It was a way of preserving the dead persons body after it had passed away. The Egyptians wrapped bandages around the dead body to stop it from rotting away. Watch the YouTube video to find out more!
