The berries are generally of the nightshade plant. With a PE Newberry, a partner at Carter, was able to determine the season in which Tutankhamun was buried on the basis of the growing seasons of plants used in garlands of King. According to Newberry, the funeral took place from mid March to late April. One of the many garlands placed around the third or innermost, the coffin was composed of two real flowers and glass beads. other necklaces made entirely of faience beads were found on the mummy, and others were scattered over the various rooms of the tomb.
