The Ancient Egyptian’s Guide to Having Fun!

Everything we see on the telly, or read, or really know about the Egyptians is all very serious. It’s about their wars, the royalty, and their jobs. But what did they actually do for fun?

Join Molly Osborne, Egyptologist and play-advocate, as she explores the fun and games the Egyptians did in their free time. There is also a fun surprise at the end!
