I visited Musselburgh Burgh’s Egyptian Open Day yesterday. It was fantastic. In the Egyptian Museum, I was able to see pyramids, canopic jars, scarab beetles and lots of mummies! I took along some of my work colleagues from Archives and Museums and they really enjoyed it too. Their favourite things included making their own jewellery, writing a cartouche and digging for Egyptian objects!
Well done to all the pupils and teachers involved! They received an ‘Official Museum’ certificate which they are now displaying in the corridor outside the P3 and P3/4 classes.
