Notes

The word coffin is the general term for the receptacles in which a corpse is buried. Most commonly this refers to the eight-sided wooden box tapered to fit the human body (wider at the head and shoulders and then narrower at the feet). Coffins however have been fashioned in many different ways over time and out of many different media.
