Inspired by Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt, this session playfully introduces the scribes of ancient Egypt, the tools of their trade and the materials they used.

Visit the scribe's office to create your own document, pause at the creative writers' area and wander through the workshop. There'll be lots of activities and mark-making opportunities to keep you busy.
