Resources - welcome teachers, parents and guardians

We have new photos!

Please send us any of your
completed pages from your activity book, as well as your drawings, poems or photos of
your craft work projects inspired by ancient Kush, and we'll display them in our online gallery for everyone to see. Just email them to (in Jpeg format, please).

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Secrets of the Afro Comb, 6,000 Years of Art and Culture has been created for you and your child to enjoy together, so it’s a bit different from a traditional activity & colouring book which children complete on their own. Instead it makes an ideal option for quality time together. Please take your time as you and your child work through your book – read each page and look at the pictures before you start to colour, draw or complete the activities. Once completed, the whole book should be kept for future reference. Remember to encourage and praise your child as they complete their activity book.

When you’ve completed your book, why not have more fun and learning with our downloadable activity sheets:

And don’t forget to have a look at some of the things the Kushites left behind.

Dear Teachers,

Secrets of the Afro Comb, 6,000 Years of Art and Culture is an ideal resource for introducing children aged 7 to 11 to the fascinating ancient kingdom of Kush. Please contact the author using the email below for more information on our hands-on cross-curricular workshops, for author visits to schools, parent & teacher learning evenings as well as using the book as a learning resource.
