Displayed in an open-storage system, this study gallery shows objects from the early eighteenth dynasty (ca. 1550–1400 B.C.) cover a variety of types: architectural fragments, small statues and stelae (tombstones), cosmetic containers, baskets, implements, and amulets. A collection of terracotta so-called funerary cones, stamped with names and titles of tomb owners, is arranged in rows to evoke the objects' original placement above tomb entrances. Noteworthy also are the burials of Nubian mercenaries containing horns of animals, a custom that originated in their homeland south of Egypt.
