Thank you Nancy, that was an enjoyable read One of my interests is learning about ancient civilizations, and I find the ancient Egyptians fascinating. There is going to be a special about Queen Nefertiti this Sunday. Again, thank you for your well written editorial
Perhaps "mysteries" are meant to be just that... Mysteries! Time will tell, no?
CAIRO, Egypt (Reuters) -- The mummy a British Egyptologist says could be the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, renowned for her beauty, is much more likely to be a man, Egypt's antiquities chief Zahi Hawass said.
Nefertiti, wife and co-ruler with the pharaoh Akhenaten and stepmother of legendary boy King Tutankhamun, has long been considered one of the most powerful women of ancient Egypt. Joann Fletcher, a mummification specialist from the University of York in England, said in June there was a "strong possibility" her team had unearthed Nefertiti from a tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings in Luxor. The Discovery Channel publicized the find in a television program aired this month. But Secretary-General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), Hawass, expressed doubts Saturday about the find and said there were questions over the gender of the mummy.
