Pottery from the burial of Senneferi

More than 120 vessels were discovered in the course of the excavation of the underground chambers of TT99. Above are shown two marl clay jars, simply and beautifully decorated in the style of the Thutmoside period in which Senneferi lived. They would probably have been used for storing liquids.

There is still much work to be done on this page. However for the present, you will find by following the next link a series of thumbnail images of pottery worked on during the 1999 season. A number of the jars bore inscriptions; some of these are on a jar label page.
