On Thursday we went to the National Museum of Ireland. We met a lady called Annie who brought us up to the Ancient Egypt Exhibit. The room had lots of glass cases with jewellery, mummies, artefacts and relics. The cases are kept at an even temperature to help protect the artefacts. We were told all about the process of mummification. We also saw amulets that were based on the shape of a scarab or dung beetle. The amulets were placed inside the bandages as the mummy was being wrapped in order to protect it. 

We also went into the arts and crafts room and made our own scarab amulets out of air dough. We loved the experience.
