Egyptian coffins

From: Carolyn Collins <ccollins_us>

I am researching the manufacture and conservation of an ancient
Egyptian coffin coated in a black substance. Analysis of it has not
come back yet but it is  likely a resin, pitch, or possibly bitumen.

I am interested  in hearing from those of you who have worked on
these types of coffins. What kind of issues, analytical information,
and treatment outcomes have you encountered?
