Mummy of Queen Hatshepsut found (?)


This video is called Hey, Hey, Hatshepsut!

Regarded as one of the most successful pharaohs, Maatkare Hatshepsut was ruling queen of Egypt and is believed to have ruled from 1479 to 1458 BC.

From Egyptology Blog:

Egyptologists think they have identified with certainty the mummy of Hatshepsut, the most famous queen to rule ancient Egypt, found in a humble tomb in the Valley of the Kings, an archaeologist said on Monday.

Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, will hold a news conference in Cairo on Wednesday. The Discovery Channel said he would announce what it called the most important find in the Valley of the Kings since the discovery of King Tutankhamun.

The archaeologist, who asked not to be named, said the candidate for identification as the mummy of Hatshepsut was one of two females found in 1903 in a small tomb believed to be that of Hatshepsut‘s wet-nurse, Sitre In.
