Teaching Ancient Egypt – Institute of Art

Date: March 28, 2007

Albany Institute of History and Art

The program uses the Egyptian collection of the Albany Institute and primary source documents provided by IHARE to examine Egyptian stories, battles, and tombs to learn Egyptian cultural values and how those values shaped and were reflected in the historical records of the kings and the biographical records of the commoners. Through this examination, participants gain a better understanding of ancient Egypt and have documents which can be used in the classroom.
