Tutankhamun’s Second (Middle) Coffin This anthropoid coffin7/24/2021, 9:38:23 AM
Tutankhamun’s Second (Middle) Coffin This anthropoid coffin is made out of gilded wood. Small pieces of colored glass were affixed to practically the whole body of the coffin. It was protected by a red linen shroud when it was discovered by Howard Carter. Additionally, the red linen shroud was covered with floral garlands. The flowers, although far dead and dry, suggest that the king was buried during the spring time when the flowers would have been available. No handles exist on this middle coffin, which made the excavation difficult.
