Stone vessels are one of the commonest of Ancient Egyptian objects. This dissertation is concerned with the typology and dating ,of stone vessels from the Predynastic Period to the end of the Third Dynasty (c. 2600 B.C.). The bulk of the evidence is presented in the form of a detailed corpus of provenanced vessels, arranged primarily by types, and illustrated in a series of line drawings and photographic plates. Some eight thousand vessels are dealt with, including many hitherto unpublished. Note is taken of previous attempts to establish a typological analysis of stone vessels. The thesis attempts for the first time to organize and classify an unwieldy, but important, mass of material which, it is hoped, may form the basis on which future work on stone vessels may be undertaken. A separate section is devoted to the method of manufacture of the vessels, ancient and modern. Full concordances and indexes are provided at the end of the dissertation.
