Are wooden coffins “normal”?

Yes, for the regular joe!


Not quite. The regular joe wasnt likely to be buried in anything, let alone a wooden sarcophagus. During the Middle Kingdom, a wooden sarcophagus was reserved for the Egyptian elite. Your regular Joe was wrapped in linen and buried in the desert with a little bit of food for their journey to the afterlife.

Thanks for the correction, you know, I did consider that, the wood coffin was, I guess "mid level", if one had the means, it would be stone, wood, would be next, the poorest in linen. I guess the timeframe is relevant.

Well I spent 2.5 years in university studying archaeology ... I guess it does mean a lot to me.

Furthermore, the Egyptian authorities have been known to be closed off, which is kind of understandable, but then again, it's mainly because of Hawass. He demands everything found in Egypt, be promoted and credited only by the Egyptian antiquities. In other words, he's stubborn.

I hope these remains are left untouched, these sarcophagi should be treated like lightning-look but don't touch. I remember another another story from Saqqara about a toy airplane but i could have the wrong location.

the ancient egyptians are a mystery wrapped in an enigma.
