Thank you Marianne

Hawass has or has not published the CT scans for the chest wound and for the age of the mummy of Thutmose I? I don't care much for his unpublished opinions printed in the international press.

          Unless he's quoted wrong, when he was interviewed by the Tribune he said the CT scan showed the mummy to be a man in his 30s. Now in his book this figure is reduced to 20??? Then he says in his book... more

              I believe Maspero was right about this mummy and its age being 50+. I do not trust the CT-scan since the ages keep changing depending on who is being quoted, and Hawass changed it from 30 to 20. The... more

                  Two different radiologists can examine a CT-scan and walk away with two completely different conclusions. That's my point. The no crossed arms is not significant since the arms were disturbed by... more
