The Egyptians made one of the nicest sarcophagus (coffin) ever. These sarcophagus were usually for the Pharaohs and the wealthy. These were made to protect the body from the sun and jackals. If the sun can get to the body the body would decay. The Egyptians were one of the firsts to mummify their dead. The sarcophagus was usually buried in a tomb.
