Ancient Egypt

We have been learning about Ancient Egypt this term. We decided to mummify some tomatoes! 

First, we scooped out the insides. 


We made sure everything was removed from the inside of the tomato.

Next, we applied antiseptic hand-gel to make sure the tomato was as clean as possible. 

Then we added bicarbonate of soda and salt to make sure the tomato didn't go too mushy!

After that, we wrapped our tomato up in kitchen roll to mummify it properly.

Finally, we put it into a special tomb to seal it for many years to come. 

We tried lots of foods from Ancient Egypt: dates, grapes, and flat breads.
