Description

Come and look at some of the oldest artefacts held by the Petrie Museum on Egypt.

Located near the British Museum, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology is much less well known than some of the other big museums in London. However, it is a hidden gem. In fact, it’s one of the top 5 museums in the world with artefacts from ancient Egypt. It has 80,000 objects from the ancient Nile valley.

You will see more than 8,000 years of Black history including:

  • The oldest woven garment in the world

  • The face of the first pharaoh

  • Images of Nefertiti, Akhenaton and others

  • And objects that really show us how ordinary ancient Egyptians lived such as their combs, jewellery, and other items for daily use
