Unearthed: Ancient Egypt

|What is it:
Calling all budding Egyptologists and archaeologists. We need your help!
Our Egyptologist Dr Digby (played on film by Terry Deary, author of Horrible Histories and Egyptian Tales) has collected so much from his years of exploration and discovery in Egypt, that he hasn't had enough time to investigate and record them all. He and his team have discovered lots of objects, including toys, farming tools, stone carvings and burial goods, which can help us understand the ancient Egyptians’ home life, working life, language and beliefs. We need your help to complete the unfinished tasks. Join us in the 1920s in our Egyptologist’s storeroom for your training, claim your archaeologist’s certificate and get to work.
Some of the objects in the exhibition will be going on display in our new Ancient Worlds galleries, opening late 2012. So we can create these new galleries, we have started removing objects from the Daily Life section of Ancient Egypt but most of our mummies and our archaeology collection will stay on display until Feb 2012.
