According to the bible, most people who died were buried in caves and tombs. Even Jesus Christ himself was buried in a rich man's tomb. Joseph the son of Jacob is the first man to be buried in a coffin according to the bible. It gives a record of his life in the book of Genesis.
The book of Genesis 50:26 says "So, Joseph died at the age of a hundred and ten years: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt". According to this verse, the bible proves that Joseph the son of Jacob was the first man to be buried in a coffin.
Nowadays all Christians are laid in coffins and then buried six feet under. As a Christian you should therefore read your bible and understand the things that happened long time ago before you were born. This will give you some important knowledge.
