Researched by restorers
Stone vessels were important prestige objects in Egypt from the early days (3100–2686 BC), deposited as grave goods in the burial chamber or in the cult complex. From the division of finds in 1908, the Egyptologist and excavation director Ludwig Borchardt brought a remarkable bundle of over 2000 stone vessel fragments from the burial site of King Sahurê to Berlin.
The collection has been systematically inventoried and evaluated since 2018. In this context, technological aspects for the production of different types of vessels were examined in the stone restoration of the Egyptian Museum and their feasibility was proven by experimental tests.
