Ancient Egypt and East Asia resources

We worked with partners across Scotland to create learning and engagement resources for use with ancient Egyptian and East Asian collections.

    Colour in and keep a jackal mask. Based on the Egyptian god, Anubis, the god of mummification, jackal masks were sometimes worn by priests when carrying out the mummification process in order to act as a stand in for Anubis.

We are delighted to be able to share these resources with you for use in your audience learning and engagement programmes.

We are grateful to the support of our museum partners for their support in developing these materials, and we would kindly request that you do not edit the resources, or remove their acknowledgments.

We would love to hear about how you use these resources. Please tweet us @NMSPartnerships or email

With funding from the Museums Association's Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund, we piloted a framework for measuring social impact of audience engagement with ancient Egyptian and East Asian collections. 

We developed this framework based on the feedback from colleagues at our Social Impact Symposium in November 2018, the Museum Associations Measuring Social Impact Toolkit and the Scottish Government’s National Performance Framework.

The toolkit was piloted by partner museums, who engaged with autistic children and young people and their families.
