Broken mud ball showing human hair inside. Found at the royal city of Akhetaten by archaeologists working for the Egypt Exploration Society. Sometime after excavation the mud ball was broken in half to reveal a lock of brown human hair. Like many others found at Amarna that contain human hair. Small balls of mud containing human hair were probably used in magical practices.
One half with the exposed hair is numbered 56.21.673a and the other fragments pieces are kept together and numbered 56.21.673b. This was from the 1923-1924 excavation season at Tell el-Amarna but we have no record of the individual find number.
