KAHUN, PHARAOH’S MUD BRICK FACTORY

MAP OF EGYPT

KAHUN, THE MIDDLE KINGDOM WORKERS’ VILLAGE

THE PYRAMID BUILDERS OF ANCIENT EGYPT 

A box now in the Manchester Museum. Petrie found many such boxes beneath the floors of the houses he excavated in Kahun. They contained the skeletons of babies up to three months old, sometimes three in a box. They were probably the bones of the Israelite babies who were killed on Pharaoh’s orders (Exodus 1:16).
