The outer layer of the linen wrappings of Karushere's mummy was held in place by tapes. The mummy was inserted into the closely fitting cartonnage (86.1.34) through a seam at the back, which was later tied together; then the cartonnage and the mummy were enclosed within the coffins. A radiograph of the mummy shows the skeleton of an adult male with bags (?) of natron (?) in the abdominal cavity and three amulets adorning and protecting the body.
