Mummy studies with egyptologist

THERE were cries of ‘I want my mummy’ when year four children had an Egyptologist come to visit.

To start their study of Ancient Egypt class project the fascinated youngsters heard all about tombs, mummies, hieroglyphs and papyrus from Professor Wilberforce.

Teacher Julie Prior said: “He inspired and engaged the children with relics and artefacts from the era of the pharaohs.”
