2006 Summer Program

Explore ancient Egypt using the journal of Ms. Emily Sands as a guide. Construct a Nile River and ancient temples, tombs and pyramids and the artifacts to bury with them. Then construct your own dahabeeyagh, a river barge, to carry your crew toward the tomb of Osiris. Excavate, interpret and collect artifacts to under-stand ancient stories and the methods Egyptologists use to read those stories.
