After covering the corpse in red ochre, the people of Khok Phanom Di wrapped
it, along with the grave goods, in beaten-bark cloth to form a single package.
Perhaps as an offering, they placed food in a specially dug pit; they may also
have feasted. The Princess's grave, like most others at the site, faced east,
but it was deeper than most, likely another bow to her status. When they filled
in the grave, the mourners mixed in some food remains—perhaps to sustain the
deceased on her journey to a supposed afterworld.
