Bill Manley and an Unidentified Coffin
Bill Manley, hieroglyph expert has been trying to find the identify of the skeletal remains of a woman and child found by Sir Flinders Petrie at Qurneh nearly 100 years ago. There is the possibility that the remains represent royal personages because of the tomb's contents, including a gilded coffin and the luxurious grave goods, including gold jewellery. However, the hieroglyphs that might have identified the owner of the coffin and tomb haev been lost due to the decay of the plaster on which they were inscribed. But now Bill Manley believes that, thanks to work with a range of other experts, he has discovered the likely identity of the woman.
