Hatshepsut - Liverpool Museum

Liverpool Museum houses an interesting artifact relating to Hatshepsut, an inscribed pebble. An item which may have originally come from the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II in the form of a foundation deposit. For clarity, the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II of the Middle Kingdom is located at Deir el Bahri and can be viewed here (Wikipedia).

It would seem that Hatshepsut had ordered the carrying out of repairs to the temple of Mentuhotep II.

This is currently the only artifact known by me in the Liverpool Museum relating to Hatshepsut. The museum, site and the pebble have all been added to the Hatshepsut Database.
