I spent about thirty minutes browsing this site. I thought that it was very
informative and interesting. The pictures definitely helped to give this site
some vividness. I thought that most everything that this site discussed was an

all the different pictures of ancient mummy coffins. I liked how next to every
picture they gave a description of the piece along with a little bit of

Technical Remarks:

This site was very easy to navigate. The only problem I had was trying to figure
out what to look up first. I found that all the graphics and text appeared
quickly after the site was finished downloading.
