Flinders Petrie

As if we don't have enough impedimenta we receive delivery of a disturbingly-familiar, unlabelled, bubble-wrapped package.

Disturbingly-familiar? The first job I had was in a museum of ancient antiquities (my career has come full circle), so when I see an object that's the height of a sarcophagus, the shape of a sarcophagus, the width of a sarcophagus and the depth of a sarcophagus I can but surmise that it is a sarcophagus.

Nobody has ordered a sarcophagus and knows nothing about the package.

I would have thought the archaeologists would have been coming round to take stuff out not put stuff in.
