How old is ancient?
The Ancient Egyptians lived deep in the past, but that past spanned nearly 6,000 years and continues to this day! Come join us at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum where we work together to build a large-scale interactive timeline of Ancient Egypt. We will explore how some of our artifacts, pivotal world moments, monumental structures, and charismatic pharaohs fit into the not-so-distant past of Egyptian history.
Some of the questions you might answer:
1. Did Cleopatra VII live closer to the present or to the building of the pyramids?
2. When did King Tut live compared to the founding of Rome?
3. What type of artifacts would you find in the Middle Kingdom?
4. When were the first and last Egyptian Hieroglyphs made?
This workshop is free and does not require reservations. Participation in this workshop will count towards the Junior Archaeologist Program graduation. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum invites all aspiring poets, tax collectors, and tomb painters to enroll in Scribe School!
Scribes worked tirelessly to record every detail of ancient life. Starting at a young age, scribes would begin the process of learning the over 700 unique hieroglyphic characters, the hieratic, and demotic forms of the Egyptian written language. Once fully trained, a scribe could expect to join an elite class of scholars in charge of documenting and running the Ancient Egyptian civilization.
If you feel yourself drawn to the literary life and aspire for greatness, enroll in Scribe School at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum on December 19 at 12 noon.
Scribes will be given basic instruction in writing in Hieroglyphics, correct posture and form, and will then create their own personal cartouche.
Admission is free with paid entry to the museum.
