from Qurneh, Egypt

Anklets
Add to album

These anklets made of faience beads are among a number of grave goods placed in the rich burial of a woman and child at Qurneh in Egypt, sometime in the 17th Dynasty. The anklets were placed in the child's coffin along with other jewellery.

The child buried at Qurneh was about two and a half years old at death, too young for its gender to be identified from the bones. It is likely that the burial belongs to a mother and her child. Both had wealthy grave goods, all the more remarkable since the burial dates from a period when Egypt was politically divided and relatively impoverished.
