A Funerary Meal in an Egyptian Tomb

In 1962 W.B. Emery published a tomb (Saqqara 3477) of the Second Dynasty with a well preserved funerary meal next to the burial of woman. This find offers an idea of a typical festival meal of the upper class in Early Dynastic Egypt (Emery 1962: 6-7). Everything was served on pottery, not on stone vessels.
