Yesterday, USA and Sierra Leone classes welcomed Petra and Lucy from Horsham museum for an Egyptian workshop. The children learnt about Egyptian clothing and customs and were able to hone their embalming skills! One of the customs that the children found most interesting was weighing the heart against a feather. If the heart was as light as the feather, the person would be able to move to the afterlife. If the person’s heart was heavier than the feather, they would be sent to the Underworld or Ammut would eat them. If a person's heart was light, it meant that he or she had done many good deeds and no sin. Thank you to Petra and Lucy for an interesting and informative day.
