The Tomb of Perneb website is run by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and aims to educate children about the construction of the tomb and how it ended up in New York. The theme ties in with the Early People and Ancient Societies strand of History and would suit the children in the senior cycle (probably only 5th and 6th classes).
The website is split into 3 parts. In the first of these parts children learn why tombs were built, how they were built and what they contained. Children can view of virtual 3-D tour of the tomb and see what would have been in there. The 2nd part of the website deals with the discovery and excavation of the tomb and the eventual transportation of the tomb to New York. The final part of the website deals with the tomb today and children can watch videos of the museum curator and others speak about the tomb.
Also included in the site are an interactive crossword and details for an Art lesson on making a papyrus scroll with Egyptian Hieroglyphics on it.
