Rotten Remedies: Children’s Half Term Workshop

From: 22 Feb 2022, 10 a.m.
To: 25 Feb 2022, 3 p.m.
Location: Egypt Centre

From baboon brains to crocodile poo, discover the rotten remedies used as medicine in ancient Egypt this February Half Term.

Search for evidence of illness on our dummy mummy as you carefully unwrap its bandages and use 3D Hologram scans to see inside mummified remains. Learn to write magic spells in hieroglyphs and compare which foods would make you sick, with those that would make you better. Then mix unexpected ingredients to cure a common illness as you make your very own medicine pouch to take home with you.

February 22 – 25
10am – 3pm,
£20 per child per day, Suitable for ages 6-11.
