Didn't you post this recently, conorp? It was either you or another poster because I read it. In fact, I made copies of it and passed them around to my fellow Egyptian docents at the Field.

Very interesting, isn't it? I don't think the female mummy from the article is on display in our galleries. That thick padding on the neck is unlike any of the X-rays I've seen of the mummies in our exhibit, although one woman from Dynasty 21, named Djediumutesankh, is known to have been about 30 years old when she died. It's this one.

I'm going to have to take a closer look at her X-ray to see if it might be her, after all. Smile
