 The Coffin of Sitamun

The daughter of Ahmose I .

The mummy originally thought to be intact, once unwrapped was found to have been hacked to pieces in antiquity by robbers. The restorers of the time used reeds as well as bones to pack the pieces in a vague mummiform shape (with the skull placed in its rightful place).

The coffin has no decoration and is painted white.

   
 

Length of the coffin : 1.28 metres
