Buried with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, a pack of Camel cigarettes, a lighter, his favourite junk food, a dog biscuit (so he could feed the dogs in heaven) and a dollar’s worth of dimes so he could use a payphone to call loved ones in the afterlife.

For centuries, ancient Egyptians were buried with a number of items believed to be necessary in the afterlife. These included everyday items like bowls, combs, furniture and food plus magical/protective objects like amulets. The tombs of wealthy individuals also contained jewellery and other valuables.
