Egypt - Abu Ballas
Ever since the discovery of Abu Ballas (Pottery Hill) in the Western Desert of Egypt by Lieut. More and J. Ball in 1917 scientists have wondered by whom, how and when some 400 big earthenware jars were transported to the site of the hill which is situated in the middle of nowhere - about 180 km south-west of Dakhla Oasis. © Tina Ponzellini - See the Egypt map with a complete picture set.
