Interactive Ancient Civilizations Experience

The Ancient Civilizations presentation begins with an introduction to the importance and excitement of studying history, before proceeding into a discussion on how certain technologies from the past are still in use today (with examples). 

The presentation will then cover the Roman Government, the evolution of warriors and combat throughout history, and then an exploration of the Egyption mummification process. To round out the session, students will be able to come look at and touch some of the various ancient artefacts that are brought with the presenters.

Authentic Ancient Artifacts

After the 60-minute presentation, students will have the opportunity to come to the front and see some of the ancient artefacts on display. 

At the centre of the display area is an Egyptian Coffin. This replica is flanked by a variety of real ancient medieval swords, helmets, and arrowheads (800 years old), as well some much older Ancient Egyptian Canopic jars and Ushabitis (2000 – 4500 years old). Other interesting relics may be brought on request.
