Mummy of a dog    'Man's best friend' was considered not just as a family pet, but was also used for hunting, or for guard duty, from the earliest periods of Egyptian history.

This is the mummy of a dog who was probably a royal pet; it was found in a royal tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

Mujer Borremose Los trabajadores de una excavación en Dinamarca descubrieron este cuerpo de 2.700 años de edad en 1947. Dañaron su cabeza con sus palas, privándonos de mirarla a la cara, y los investigadores no han podido determinar la causa de su muerte. Al igual que otros cuerpos del pantano, la Mujer Borremose (llamada así por el pantano en el que fue encontrada) puede haber sido una víctima sacrificial.

The remains of Tutankamun’s Parents -- Akhenaten, and the mummy only identified as “The Younger Lady” -- and his grandparents, Queen Tiye and Amenhotep III. It was recently proven that this “Younger Lady” mummy is in fact Tutankamun’s mother, and a full sister to Akhenaten. Thus King Tut only had one set of grandparents.
