We don’t have many Egyptian cities, although Egypt was a unified territorial state. In order to understand how Egypt became a unified state, analysis of pre-dynastic burials is  important to understanding the unification of Egypt. Early pre-dynastic burials have been found, buried in pits with the bodies facing south and  buried with large knives and pots. The pits were sometimes lined with brick or stone.  At the end of the Predynastic period, larger tombs were being built, sometimes with multiple  chambers.  Palates for painting were common in this area. Some were shaped like fish. Bowls and pots have been found with crocodiles, plants and geometric patterns. Pottery was  handmade and coil-built. Some pottery had river scenes with water plants, birds and boats.  Black-top ware pottery was commonly found in early Predynastic sites.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
