Task 2


Key Question 2

What sources of evidence have survived and how were they discovered?


Much of our understanding about the Ancient Egypt civilization came within the last 200 years and one of the most important discoveries was the tomb of Tutankhamu. What was found inside the tomb, were the treasures that allowed the great archaeologists to understand life in Ancient Egypt.

We have already learnt in History about the importance of artefacts and how they are the 'jigsaw pieces' in helping us to understanding the past. Your task this week is to research facts about Tutankhamu's Tomb. Follow the guidance below and present your work in your book in the easiest way possible for you.
