A Day in the Life of Seschemnefer

Based on a search game we will accompany the vizier Seschemnefer III.’s family on a day in the ancient Egypt 4500 years ago. The children will learn about important gods, but also about everyday things. The visit of the original Egyptian sacrificial chamber of the vizier and the extensive grave goods in the museum reveals the way in which the Egyptians dealt with the subject of death: what they believed or hoped and which preparations were to be made for eternal life.

With the help from an exercise book, tasks can be solved, small sketches can be drawn and observations can be noted.
