Third century pottery plant discovered in New Valley

State Information Service

A French antiquities team working in Al-Kharja's Deir area, New Valley governorate, discovered a big plant for potteries, dating back to the third century. The site included a large number of rare pots which had been produced for trade purposes and distribution in distant areas. In terms of production and shape, the pots were the first of their kind to be discovered in Egypt or any other place in the world. As part of an integrated Deir Castle development project, another collection of pots were found by the same team.
