The mummy of the pharaoh Amenhotep II's foster brother may have been found in a former monastery, according to archival research into 19th-century documents. The mummy, now reduced to a skeleton, is believed to be that of Qenamun, the chief steward of Amenhotep II (about 1427–1400 B.C.) who was the 7th Pharaoh of Egypt's 18th Dynasty and likely Tutankhamun's great-great-grandfather.
The key to Hatshepsut's identity was discovered in this wooden box, originally unearthed in a separate tomb in 1881. The box is inscribed with Hatshepsut's name and contains the mummified organs of the pharaoh queen.
The mummy of the pharaoh queen Hatshepsut sits on display at Cairo's Egyptian Museum. The remains were recently identified as those of Hatshepsut using forensic and DNA testing, scientists announced today.
