The slain soldiers had apparently been laying siege to a fortress and suffered arrow wounds from arrows entering body at a steep angle as if shot from a wall. I had an article on it that showed many more pieces of bodies and heads with arrows still in the bodies. They had been interred in s building and mummified naturally. It was the Middle Kingdom so little or no armour. Anyway here are a couple of pics:

Some had apparently lain on the ground suffering arrow wounds and were given the coup de grace.
