How Old is my Mummy?

Topic: 3A Teeth and eating

Archaeologists can make an estimate of the age of preserved bodies such as mummies and Iron and Bronze Age men by looking at the teeth. Presence or otherwise of milk teeth, wisdom teeth etc. can give an approximate age.

In this activity children will learn about types of teeth and the ages at which teeth appear and are lost. They will look at diagrams of teeth and estimate how old the person was at death.
