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not published the CT scans for the chest wound and for the age of the mummy of Thutmose I? I don't care much for his unpublished opinions printed in the...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

        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 also forgot to mention that the mummy in question had no identifying docket, which is strange in itself for a kingly mummy--if it were one. It is true that the remains were found in one of the... more
