As part of the Ancient Egypt and East Asia National Programme, we are working with partners across Scotland to create learning and engagement resources for use with ancient Egypt or East Asia collections. We are delighted to be able to share some of these resources with you for use in your audience learning and engagement programmes.

As more resources become available throughout the course of the project, we will upload them to this page for you to access.

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 partnerships@nms.ac.uk.
