Margaret Murray: Her Life in Pots @ Petrie Museum
The Petrie Museum of Egyptology asked Mirror Mirror to create a new activity for their Festival of Pots in spring 2014.
Taking inspiration from the legend of Margaret Murray – the first female archaeologist to publicly unwrap a mummy and first female president of the Folklore Society, who lived to 100 years old - we created an object led story telling workshop, aiming to open up the imagination of the young people involved.
Workshop Type: Families and under tens / timed session / constructivist learning / facilitator led.
Options: Could be drop in, extended or linked to other themes.
Timing: Approx one hour.
Experiment and explore collaboratively.
Greater awareness of key figures in Egyptology.
Opportunity to exercise imagination through engagement with historical objects.
