Identification of Egyptian Royal Mummies
The American Journal of Physical Anthropology has published an article on the identification of the Egyptian royal mummies. I have not yet read it so I cannot comment, but you can find a copy of it here.
I have worked in the securities industry for more than thirty years and founded a consulting firm (ASJ International, Inc.) in the financial services industry in 2009. I also trade stocks and options.
I have a B.A. in Middle Eastern Studies from City University of New York and have been studying the Ancient Near East for over 40 years. I was formerly the Secretary of the Egyptological Seminar of New York and have lectured there and at City University of New York. I can read Akkadian, Sumerian and Ancient Egyptian.
