The book I'm reading is called "The Shadow King: The Bizarre Afterlife of King Tut's Mummy" by Jo Marchant.

One thing that does confuse a lot of modern sensibilities is that it is not generally known that the marriage practices within the royal houses remained within the family. Fathers married daughters and brothers married sisters and there was a lot of inbreeding going on.

Many *Thank You's* Eya for posting that information on Hatshepsut. She has always been one of my very favorite females in ancient history. I just got a book on her, Hatchepsut by Joyce Tyldesley and it is a very detailed book, the kind that you need just the right amount of consternation with pen and paper in hand to take notes so that the notes go into my computer. I do that with these kind of books, so enjoyable to read about her.

Eya,

Many Thank You's for this, how interesting and what is amazing is that the ancient people actually left *instructions* for people in the after life to build the boat again........that just made me reread the article...darn they did not leave anything to chance did they.....amazing group of ancients there I would say.....I am currently working on a book of *Cleopatras*, not the famous one but the name and where it came from and all named before and after The Cleopatra as we know her. A very technical book and not easy to read for a layperson such as me.

WHO WAS QUEEN HATSHEPSUT?** | Daily Mail Online


When I was in the Royal Mummy room at the old Egyptian Museum some years ago standing next to Queen Hatshepsut there was a smal etikette attached to her glass coffin there saying Queen Hatshepsut was "an obese woman with a toothake...I've never been more dumbfounded as to why on earth anyone at that respectable museum would give a discription like that for a Lady of her stature.

Another detail..she was laying between Tuthmoses III and Ramses II..oh history...

Another article describing the find of the second sphinx. They're going to be taking their time to uncover this one as they want to ensure that the environmental climate won't damage it.

Just a note for those of you that are interested in ancient civilizations. One of the websites I frequent for information and suggestions for books to read called Ancient Origins now has a magazine out. Read the first edition for free on the website.

Thank you Eya and AAR so very much for sharing this, what a thrilling find this is and I am keeping an eye out for what comes next. I truly believe that there are more tombs of the ancient Egyptians and the royal families to be found, the surface has been scratched only and in time hopefully the powers to be can dig deeper into the hills and sand........so much to learn from this tomb and those statues are just gorgeous, the colors still vivid today from thousands of years ago........this is very exciting for the amateur Egyptologist.

As much as I love all the discoveries and the knowledge of a far distant past that comes with each new discovery, part of me wishes that the tombs were never opened and desecrated through the thousands of years of ancient Egyptian history first by tomb robbers in the past and now for scientific study. The culture of ancient Kemet was very steeped in the belief of the afterlife and was reflected in their day to day lives.

Moses wasn't the first to come into contact what is known today as the ten commandments. Its most likely as he grew up in the House of Pharaoh, he was familiar with the ancient Kemetic commandments. All 42 of them.

Archaeologists will begin a search at the site of the ancient Abu Sir Palace near Alexandria for the possible burial site of Cleopatra.

Was there any order of succession and/or a line of succession especially at the time(s) of Nectanebo II and/or Cleopatra VII/Ptolemy XV? Plus, who would/could be a pretender to the throne today?
