Funderingsdepots

Ik lees in ‘ Five years' explorations at Thebes : a record of work done 1907-1911’ (1912) van Carnarvon en Carter het volgende:

Another interesting fact relating to Hatshepsut's Der el Bahari temple was the discovery of a foundation deposit at the north-west corner of the dromos … where it joins the temple. This is the largest deposit that has hitherto been discovered, and exhibits two new features in connexion with the custom of placing of such deposits, namely, the consecration of the building by unction and flesh and blood offerings. These offerings were kept separate from the usual model tools and implements which were found near by, and the vessels containing the unguents and wines were smashed, and their contents, as well as grains of com, were poured over the clean sand that filled the cache.

Een funderingsdepot dus met vlees en granen.
Detail vanaf p. 30.

Deze inhoud van een funderingsdepot kende ik niet. ‘Tempels van het Oude Egypte’ van Wilkkinson geeft enkele andere voorbeelden p.39.

Niettegenstaande ik wist dat er offers waren, had ik geen idee dat men ook levensmiddelen in funderingsdepots stak?
