For teachers, educators, and parents

If you’re caring for children off school and want to engage them with the heritage of Egypt, then don’t forget that we have our very own Young Explorers Club where you will find plenty of online educational resources for teachers, educators, and parents for you to read, watch, and download.

Young Explorers Club

Okay, so it isn’t Egyptology, but all archaeology can be fun, so why not check out the University of York’s school resources for archaeology? https://www.york.ac.uk/archaeology/schools/ 

The Young Archaeologists' Club also has plenty of things to keep your next generation scholars busy during the school closures! Take a look here: https://www.yac-uk.org/things-to-do 

All things historical and educational (and Award winning!) from the UK National Archives can be found here: https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/education/ 

And don’t forget to check out your local museum websites where you will find plenty of further resources.

Archives

For images from our own archives of excavation and survey in Egypt since 1882, check out our Flickr feed here.

To find out more about the history of excavation and distribution of artefacts from British archaeological missions in Egypt, check out the Artefacts of Exacavtion Project website here. You should also take a look at UCL Press because they let you read many of their books for free online, including the thoroughly recommended ‘Scattered Finds’ by Dr Alice Stevenson.

Our colleagues over at the Griffith Institute have plenty of resources on their website including digital archives about the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun! http://www.griffith.ox.ac.uk/
