Ancient Civilisation Day

Using reproduction artefacts and photos of archaeological discovers, we learnt about life and death in Ancient Sumer (modern-day Middle East), Ancient Indus Valley (India/Pakistan), Shang Dynasty (China) and Ancient Egypt.

We looked at the development of writing and its uses; items used for cooking and eating; use of bronze; and the objects people were buried with.
