Faith after the Pharaohs at the British Museum

faith after pha

On Thursday 29th October wham bam in the school’s half term holidays, there is a new exhibition opening at the British Museum which will last until 7th February 2016. The great news is that it blends both History and RE with an exhibition about how Christians, Jews and Muslims moulded the development of Egypt from Roman times until the early 12 century when the Islamic Fatimid dynasty ends.

As it is a special exhibition there will be a cost for entry but generally these British Museum exhibitions are amazing with artefacts borrowed from museums all around the world (unlike some artefacts in the British Museum which people say were stolen during the British Empire).
