  32. 32. The Excavation: What we discovered
  33. 33. Thoughts about this culture The culture has many things in common with ancient Egypt There are statues of a Sphinx, pyramids, and each had Egyptian hieroglyphics carved on them Art in squares 6 and 9 had pictures of pyramids Square 2 had Egyptian hieroglyphics There’s a lot of gold, like we’ve seen from ancient Egyptian burial sites There are three mummies on the site
  34. 34. Thoughts about this culture The clay object in square 8 is shaped like an ankh, an Egyptian symbol of life This is a wealthy culture from the amount of gold and jewels, like rings, gems, necklace and beads The sarcophagus in square 5 is filled with jewels and coins The piece of slate in square 2 seems to have the word pyramid written on it There are two staffs in square 3 One looks like an Egyptian heqa crook, and the other looks like a was scepter
  35. 35. Questions we have Is square 7 a cooking and eating area (with baskets and eating utensils)? What is the meaning of the leaves in square 3? Is the mummy in square 4 a wolf, a cat? We’re puzzled by the candlestick in square 5? What is it’s meaning? Do the day glow beads have special meaning? What about the writing in English on the statue in square 2? What’s the story behind that? There is a spoon of unusual shape in square 7/ What is it used for?
  36. 36. Questions we have What are the triangular clay objects in square 7? Why are there bricks? Do they show the shape of a burial site? (We see no evidence of a hearth or living area) What are the teeth about (in squares 2 and 5)? What is the meaning of the cloth in square 8? Is it a piece of clothing? Why is there a bracelet in the ankh object in square 8? What’s up with the Hello Kitty necklace?
  37. 37. Our conclusions This site was probably a burial area. Single bricks surround the site, and a sarcophagus is in the center The sarcophagus was filled with fancy stuff, as if the mummy buried there was a very important person or animal The culture had close ties to the ancient Egyptians We believe the slate in square 2 may have been a map We know that the ancient Egyptians made animal mummies of special pets, and animals connected with their gods. We wonder if the mummies are of important animals.
