 The mummy and Coffin of

Tuthmosis III

 

Yet another mummy to have been damaged by robbers (the hole seen in the mummy wrappings was caused by robbers looking for amulets on the body) - the priests who restored the mummy prior to reburial used wooden splints to strengthen the body.

Length of the mummy - 1.615 metres.

The coffin of Tuthmosis III had suffered almost as much as his mummy - robbers (ancient and modern) had removed any trace of gold, although the coffin was probably the original coffin (the titles and names of the king remain on the inside of the coffinlid).

   
 

  Length of the coffin:2.07 metres
