Body sherd of a pottery vessel
A body sherd of a pottery vessel made of brown/black fine fabric. It shows traces of burnishing and a black interior. It is from a box labelled 'Armant 4 Badarian (EPIII) Medium and Fine Wares 50/2971-50/3006 and 50/3024-50/3026'. This sherd dates to the Predynastic Badarian Period (5500-4000BCE). This is the earliest type of Egyptian pottery manufactured. Badarian vessels are hand made and of extremely high quality.
