Egypt's Pharaoh Hatshepsut Said Found

Egypt's Pharaoh Hatshepsut Said Found

The mummy of Hatshepsut, Egypt's greatest female pharaoh, has been identified, thanks to gum disease and a missing molar.

The find, said to be the most important in Egypt's Valley of the Kings since the discovery of King Tutankhamun in the early 1920s, follows a one-year investigation led by Zahi Hawass, Egypt's secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Hawass' work will be detailed in "Secrets of Egypt's Lost Queen," a documentary that airs Sunday, July 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The Discovery Channel.

Trovo questo così molto affascinante. Quando ero un bambino, prima che ci sia una cosa come il cavo, l'unica cosa che potrebbe ottenerla che guardo la televisione per tutta la durata era un " Amo Lucy" fine settimana lunghissimo. Come adulto, potrei fare la stessa cosa con le esposizioni che si occupano dei risultati archaelogical, ma particolarmente allineo quando quei risultati sono mummie egiziane antiche. Non posso attendere per guardare questa esposizione.

I find this so very fascinating. When I was a child, before there was such a thing as cable, the only thing that could get me watching the television for any length of time was an "I Love Lucy" marathon weekend. As an adult, I could do the same thing with shows that deal with archaelogical findings, but especially true when those findings are ancient Egyptian mummies. I cannot wait to watch this show.
