A new educational activity inspired by the permanent exhibition room ‘In search of life’.

The room was created first and foremost to fulfil a conservation need: in fact, the display case houses 91 mummies. BEFORE the Online Meeting, to reflect on the advisability of displaying human remains, students are asked to complete a survey.

During the meeting, with the help of the Egyptologist, the class observes and analyses the data provided by the scientific investigation conducted on three bodies and their grave goods, in order to reconstruct the story of their lives. AFTER the Online Meeting, the class can enrich the experience with a workshop activity dedicated to the ethics of displaying human remains.

The Online Meeting is a new virtual activity made available by the Museo Egizio, a digital experience focused on the students to be enjoyed in the classroom with the guidance of an Egyptologist during a live web connection with the Museum.
The exchange with the Egyptologist, who invites observation, strengthens the critical approach of the students, who become the protagonists of the live meeting. Video contributions, animations and artwork created ad hoc make the contents more engaging and effective.

Online meeting | 60 min | Only available in Italian
