History:

Mr Qayyum explains this week’s history lessons.

Read about Ani’s journey to the afterlife.

Ani was the royal scribe 3000 years ago. His story is told on a papyrus scroll called the Book of the Dead.  Only wealthy Egyptians could afford to have these scrolls, which were thought to help them in the afterlife. The scrolls show the events that await Ani in the afterlife.

  • His wife Tutu accompanies him for part of the way. This is shown in the picture below.
  • Judges await Ani to weigh his heart on a balance against a feather.
  • A monster, Ammitt, waits, threatening to devour him. The monster is part crocodile, part hippopotamus and part lion.
  • The jackal headed god Anubis is kneeling under a set of scales.
  • Ani’s heart will be weighed against a feather.
  • A baboon ensures the balance is working correctly.
  • Ani’s heart must be as light as a feather to pass the test.
  • The book of the dead contains spells that will prevent the heart from speaking out against Ani.
  • If the spells work, Ammit the monster will let him past.
  • The falcon god Honus escorts Ani to a table with meat and fruit.
  • The god Orisis grants him a second life.
  • However, Ani must continue his journey past various other demons until he reaches his destination - the Field of the Rushes where he will drink beer every evening with the gods.

 

The picture of papyrus below shows the first part of Ani’s journey. Draw what you think another part of the scroll would look like?  Annotate your drawing to show what is happening.
