KS2 History: Ancient Egypt

These videos explore the KS2 History topic Ancient Egypt. There are five films devoted to key themes - such as the River Nile and Gods and goddesses - each inspired by a particular historical artefact. The learning from these videos is consolidated in a further three narrative episodes. Each of these explores the life of a child in Ancient Egypt or - in the case of Hussein, The Water Boy - a young worker taking part in Howard Carter's excavation of King Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922. With Rhys Stephenson.
