Description

A string of black, blue, and white glass beads, plus one yellow bead on a modern thread. It was dated to the Eighteenth Dynasty by Margaret Murray, and is probably from Abydos. The object was gifted to the University of Wales, Aberystwyth by John Bancroft Willans, a subscriber of the Egypt Exploration Fund/Society, who received the object in 1903. It was subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
