Protodynastic Period Of Egypt
Naqada
Naqada
III is the last phase of the Naqada
Naqada
culture of ancient Egyptian prehistory, dating approximately from 3200 to 3000 BC.[1] It is the period during which the process of state formation, which had begun to take place in Naqada
Naqada
II, became highly visible, with named kings heading powerful polities. Naqada
Naqada
III is often referred to as Dynasty 0 or the Protodynastic Period[1] to reflect the presence of kings at the head of influential states, although, in fact, the kings involved would not have been a part of a dynasty. They would more probably have been completely unrelated and very possibly in competition with each other

Cosmetic Palette
The cosmetic palettes are archaeological artefacts, originally used in predynastic Egypt to grind and apply ingredients for facial or body cosmetics. The decorative palettes of the late 4th millennium BCE appear to have lost this function and became commemorative, ornamental, and possibly ceremonial. They were made almost exclusively out of siltstone with a few exceptions. The siltstone originated from quarries in the Wadi Hammamat. Many of the palettes were found at Hierakonpolis, a centre of power in pre-dynastic Upper Egypt

Malachite
Malachite
Malachite
is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, with the formula Cu2CO3(OH)2. This opaque, green banded mineral crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, and most often forms botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic masses, in fractures and spaces, deep underground, where the water table and hydrothermal fluids provide the means for chemical precipitation. Individual crystals are rare but do occur as slender to acicular prisms

Badari Culture
The Badarian culture provides the earliest direct evidence of agriculture in Upper Egypt
Egypt
during the Predynastic Era. It flourished between 4400 and 4000 BCE,[2] and might have already emerged by 5000 BCE.[1] It was first identified in El-Badari, Asyut Governorate. About forty settlements and six hundred graves have been located. Social stratification
Social stratification
has been inferred from the burying of more prosperous members of the community in a different part of the cemetery. The Badarian economy was based mostly on agriculture, fishing and animal husbandry. Tools included end-scrapers, perforators, axes, bifacial sickles and concave-base arrowheads. Remains of cattle, dogs and sheep were found in the cemeteries. Wheat, barley, lentils and tubers were consumed. The Badari culture

Land Of Punt
The Land of Punt, also called Pwenet or Pwene[2] by the ancient Egyptians, was an ancient kingdom. A trading partner of Egypt, it was known for producing and exporting gold, aromatic resins, blackwood, ebony, ivory, and wild animals. The region is known from ancient Egyptian records of trade expeditions to it.[3] It is possible that it corresponds to Opone
Opone
as later known by the ancient Greeks,[4][5][6] while some biblical scholars have identified it with the biblical land of Put.[7] At times Punt is referred to as Ta netjer, the "Land of the God".[8] The exact location of Punt is still debated by historians
