Clues in Clay

Clues in Clay
Photograph by Kenneth Garrett

Anna Wodzinska, a ceramist on Lehner’s team, handles one of the vessels most commonly found in the royal production center, a conically shaped bread mold, displayed with other samples of excavated pottery: a dough-mixing vat, a beer jar, and plates for everyday use. Around her lies the footprint of a building that Lehner believes is Egypt’s oldest known hypostyle, or hall with a roof supported by rows of columns.
