Lead lined coffin? That’s for a radiation contaminated body, ain’t it?
I only have questions. Is this common or tradition or superstition or something else? Who or what do you need to seal in like that? Why? Some kind of an honor or to make sure it doesn’t get out? Any legends or myths from around that time? Is it Jimmy Hoffa?
Not in the 13th or 14th century. Lead coffins were often used for people of importance, wealth, and/or nobility.
