Caption

Egyptian writing board. Gessoed wooden board that can be painted over for re-use. This board still bears traces of earlier writing (at left). The main text is a model letter that the student copied and memorised. Spelling mistakes have been corrected in red ink by the teacher. This object dates from the Middle Kingdom (Dynasty 12), from around 1981 BC to 1802 BC. It was found in Upper Egypt.
