11am-4pm. With the help of our new Unearthed: Ancient Egypt exhibition, journey back to the 1920s to our Egyptologist’s store room for some archaeological training. Our Egyptologist, Dr Digby (played on film by Horrible Histories’ Terry Deary), needs some help sorting, recording and working out more about his finds. Unearth the science and technology of ancient Egypt - make pyramids, discover the process of mummification and mummify oranges, go on a dig, and touch objects that are thousands of years old. You can also watch a family friendly film. Part of Manchester Science Festival.
