how was the idea of the book of the dead come up??

well, before the book was made up....they just wrote on the coffin itself...(when i first heard that the first thing i thought was woooowww coloring on a dead person.) after a few years the coffin had gotten pretty full. their was no more room for more spells.. so some genious dude said "hey lets make a book!!" and then.... well then their was the book of the dead. actually the book of the deads first name was "coming of the forth."

  1. thats weird that they used to write on the coffin. I like the idea of the book better. I didnt know there was a name for it before "the book of the dead"
