Discover the origins of this world famous Egyptian monument

The Great Sphinx

Taking inspiration from the Latin word for ‘a reminder’ (monumentum), our new history series focuses on some of the world’s greatest – and most mysterious – historical monuments. The monuments featured have linked activities designed to encourage children to reveal the mystery (or not!) behind these landmarks. A snap shot of relevant background information (for teacher reference or to extract and share with your class) and a stunning A4 Poster will be provided each month for the monument in focus.
