The purpose of this loan box is to help reinforce history lessons on the civilization of Ancient Egypt by presenting students with a small range of authentic artefacts. While these mostly originate from Ptolemaic Egypt, a Palaeolithic specimen is included to indicate the early settlement of the Nile valley by man while other items point to the interactions, now recognised as highly important, between Ancient Egypt and its southern neighbour, Kush.
