Sedment tomb 1538
date: First Intermediate Period (? about 2100 BC)
a rather poor undisturbed tomb of a woman
(for the selection of objects in the tomb compare: burial customs)
there are some uncertain points about the reconstruction:
1. the find spot of the pots and the walking stick are not known;
2. the length of the coffin is not certain (65 or 55 ?, the number on the tomb card looks more like 55, but this seems too short for a coffin).
