    1904-1905
  • Remarks
    G 1206 was first excavated in 1904-1905 season; at that time, G 1260 B burial was photographed (see B11829_OS, skeleton, and C12578_OS, decayed wood coffin); in 1935, G 1206 B was reopened and only contents noted for burial chamber were whetstone (registered as 35-2-5) and small fragments of wood coffin (registered as 35-2-4) (see diary Vol.27.p.013); it is not likely that skeleton and remains of wood coffin shown here were still in situ and registered as 35-2-3 and 35-2-4 (in 1935, only "small fragments" remained of decayed wood coffin).
