Hatshepsut's Mummy

Back on March 31, 2009, I reported on this blog that a news story claimed that the mummy of the Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut had been identified. However, an article in the current issue of KMT magazine (Spring 2012), casts some doubt on the claim that the mummy found in tomb KV60 is that of Hatshepsut.

The article, written by Dennis Forbes, also casts doubt on some of  the other recently "identified" royal mummies. It is an interesting read. If you can turn up a copy of KMT (Barnes and Nobles carries the magazine), then by all means read it.
