There were Canopic Jars, the four stone jars that contained the interior parts of the body which were removed before embalming and deposited with the mummies these were the stomach, heart, lungs and liver.
Badarian period pottery was made without the use of a potter’s wheel, and it was usually the woman who turned out the pottery.
These beautiful pieces were burnished to a lustrous finish and fired leaving a black upper section and lower, deep red section.
We are today finding more and more evidence of Egypt’s influence in the region by pot shards.
