Reblogging the re-blog of mine on ‘The Lunch Box of Priestess Henutmehyt, Her Eternal Workers and her Final Demise’ – It is so fitting to have provided her with a lunch-bucket, and a worker’s one at that, perhaps in order to better assist her eternal workers.

When Egyptian Priestess Henutmehyt packed it in circa 1250 B.C., she packed a lunch. A lunchbox found in Ms. Henutmehyt’s tomb contains four whole ducks and joints of goat meat (before you ask: no Twinkies). There wasn’t Saran Wrap or Tupperware back then, so the goodies were mummified, just like the lady herself.
