Rishi Coffin in Scotland

     A well known Rishi coffin, possibly of a Seventeenth Dynasty Queen was found many years ago by Flinders Petrie. The burial also contained the body of a child in a small rectangular coffin that was painted white. The full burial is now in Scotland's National Museum.

     The museum's website has a description of the find and some good photos.
