Skeleton of Man (a) with walking stick (B). The famous Egyptologist W.M. Flinders Petrie discovered this coffin and its occupant at the site of Deshahsheh in 1897. Examination of this skeleton showed that the man’s left leg was two inches shorter than his right (possibly from poliomyelitis) and therefore, he probably walked with a limp or relied heavily on his walking stick, which is placed along the edge of the coffin. The coffin was hollowed out of a single trunk of sycamore.
