Large Amphoriskos 3150 - 2150 BC  found near Jericho.
Large Terracotta Amphoriskos from the Early Bronze Age period 3150 - 2150 BC. Height: 115mm. This lovely piece was found near Jericho. The Early bronze Age Period was the time of tribes and the unifying of Egypt. The Old Kingdom in Egypt, the period when the pyramids were built, a great and splendid age, came to its end in a natural disaster. The end of the Early Bronze Age or Old Kingdom in Egypt is the time of the momentous events connected with the story of the patriarch Abraham, and described in the Book of Genesis as the overturning of the plain.
