Y7 Ancient Alexandrian Tour

Mon, 15/12/2014 - 09:20 -- Lydia Makram

After some prior learning about Alexandrian history, students were able to venture down into the Catacombs. They found out about the old burial practices of their ancestors. We then visited Pompey’s Pillar to discover that this was a very significant area in ancient Alexandria, even prior to when Christianity became the main religion in the area.  Not many of the monuments remain today but it was great opportunity for the students to see firsthand the heritage and regional power Alexandria had in the world.
