Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs

Please note:
1.
The Museum is very popular and attracts large crowds. It is important to explain this
to the pupils before their visit, so that they can decide to use this public space
thoughtfully.
2.
Please encourage your pupils to behave calmly and to respect the needs and interests
of other visitors.
3.
Many of our galleries serve as main routes to other parts of the British Museum. Pupils
should be aware of this so that they can ensure that they do not block pathways
themselves or with their possessions. Please remind them not to sit or lie in the main
routes through the galleries and that they should never run.
4.
Before the visit it is advisable to discuss with your class the issue of the display of
human remains. In addition to the wrapped mummies, the pupils may see skeletal and
other human remains in the Museum. The ethical arguments concerning such displays
are an important subject for discussion, but you may also want to take into account
the personal circumstances of the pupils.
