About this object

Loose fragments of papyri with hieratic text. Studied by Dr Roland Enmarch (August 2016) who identified the two largest peices as containing the main text of Book of the Dead Spell 100.

Two large fragments and several smaller, some with resin (?). There also seems to be bits of mummy bandages and plant material - probably from a funerary garland. Context is so far unknown as the documentation has not been traced.
