This lesson can be used as an introduction to a chapter or unit on ancient history. I have often paired it with a History Channel Classroom DVD on Archaeology and/or King Tutankhamen’s Tomb. This lesson will take one entire 40 minute class period as well as discussion time the day after, which can vary from 15-20 minutes depending on how much your students like to talk. It should show students the pros and cons of learning about something as complex as a human life through inanimate objects. Includes a set of Student Questions homework assignment.
