Unlocking the Mysteries of Mummification
We are very excited to introduce the newest member of the Investigate Learning team – our fabulous mummification doll! Now your class can get hands on and practice embalming with our more realistic body, complete with viscera for them to carefully extract. We’ve researched and developed this new resource to ensure it gives as immersive and accurate an experience as possible.
We recently had the opportunity to spend time with visiting curator Mamdouh Farouk, Director at the Imhotep Museum in Egypt. He checked through our mummification workshop and confirmed we had all the details correct and gave us lots of new information to share with you too! It was a brilliant opportunity for our team to work with an expert.
Our doll was designed and hand crafted by the very talented Ros Lorimer of Pighill Archaeological Illustration, who we have worked with on some of our other learning resources. As well as creating the doll, she has designed a beautifully decorated cover which draws inspiration from real Ancient Egyptian tomb images. The illustrations show elements of agricultural life and food production as well as funerary scenes, providing a wealth of talking points for budding Egyptologists.
We can’t wait to share these new resources with you and your class! Book now.
