Abstract

IT is suggested in Prof. Elliot Smith's letter (October 27, p. 529) that the burial customs in other countries influenced our observation of the burials in Egypt. On the contrary, the occasional practice of dismemberment in Egypt was a surprise to myself and to others; it is only gradually that the evidence for the wide distribution of such customs elsewhere has been brought forward as a parallel.
