DAILY LIFE

What do we really know about the lives of the ancient Egyptians? Tomb paintings and sacred hieroglyphic texts provide a glimpse into the world of the elite, but information on the lives of ordinary people remains scant. The majority of the population of ancient Egypt were peasants who played a vital role within the country's strict hierarchical society. Artifacts related to daily activities remain as a testament to the labours of the workers who transformed ancient Egypt into an earthly paradise.
