  • Is Queen Nefertiti Buried In King Tutankhamun's Tomb?

    I think they'll find Howards caption book in there.

    Despite the confusions caused by genetic testing of the closely and complexly related royal remains, the chance that Tut was Nefertiti's child remains high. Other Amarna bodies were moved to the Valley as the political situation deteriorated, and with Akhenaten, and with Nefertiti never found, she has to be somewhere. It would be amazing if she has been there in KV62 all along!


    Anyone ever read David Macaulay's Motel of the Mysteries? For those of us interested in archaeology and interpreting human and historical artifacts - and it has applications in the Whitehall Murder field - it is hilarious. And a warning to my thinking I know anything about the Ripper based on what he left behind.

      There was a TV show on public broadcasting a couple years ago that argued that Nefertiti's body was found~don't remember in what tomb~as a female with male royal regalia and one of her arms in a male position. I think they thought they had found Akhenaten's body also.

      I would love to see DNA on this family looking for pathophysiology.

        This type of thing has been going on for a while.. they've found Nefertiti, or Alexander the Great, Noah's Ark, or the remains of Jesus. Take your pick. It's a bit like the Jack the Ripper case. Anything to get a headline. On and on.

          Akhenaten

          Hello Anna. I'm with you. That would FINALLY settle the question about his 18th dynasty representations--did he look like that or was it avant garde art?

          We still discuss this in class.

          Cheers.
