Copper alloy model tools
Approximately ten copper alloy model tools, some in pieces. One piece, in the top right in the photograph has gold leaf on it. The accompanying card claims that these are model implements from John Garstang's Excavations at Meroe. An Early Napatan (840-820 BCE) foundation deposit was found at site M298 which fits this description.
