I've not found this site before and it's worth a look. This post is now out of date as it dates to 2006 but this post, while also I think quite old, is quite interesting in terms of discussing the reuse of the coffins. I've shown the image in this post, but for the explanation, refer to the blog article.

I'm not sure that much on that site makes much sense. Good to see the graphic though I can't see how the idea of re-usability tracks holds water. The coffins were made from pieces of wood so there will be joins and cracks. However, I can see some logic in the idea that they may have been used more than once, or were used maybe to transport some bodies from elsewhere.

I don't disagree but I'm a fan of hearing many viewpoints - and the photos are great! Kate

these are cracklines from the different wood parts the sarcophagus is made from.
