The second season of excavation at the early Makurian cemetery in El-Zuma covered five tumuli, yielding altogether 77 ceramic vessels which constituted specifically grave goods. Of these 67 have been preserved whole or with only minor damages. Sherds representing 79 other vessels were recorded from the various mounds, shafts and burial chamber fill, as well as from the tunnel breaching the back of the burial chamber in the largest of the tumuli (T.5). The ceramic material is dated overall to the early Makurian and Christian periods. The present preliminary report discusses early Makurian vessels from the separate sets of grave goods.
