Burials T.500 and T.501, constituting a part of the medieval Christian Cemetery A in Naqlun, were found in a pit dug into the monastic refuse dump on site B at the southern fringe of the monastic compound. Anthropological analysis identified two adult burials side by side, a male in a coffin, the skeleton accompanied by a number of objects, as well as a selection of dried fruit, and a female interred on a bier of palm leaf ribs. The woman’s skeletal remains showed significant pathological changes.
