Travel Tuesday: Protodynastic Egyptian Bracelet in the Petrie Museum
Can you tell I like the Petrie Museum? I blogged about this place for earlier posts on Midlist Writer about slings and other ancient Egyptian artifacts. I also did a post with lots of photos for Black Gate.
This is a bracelet from the Protodynatic Period, also called Naqada III, a time from c. 3200-3000 BC when states were beginning to form but the country had not yet been unified. The first hieroglyphs also date from this time, as do some rich cemeteries.
Someone should start making replicas of this bracelet, because my wife would love one. I think the original is out of my price range!
