Pharoah Queen Hatshepsut

Remember that time traveling book we read some time ago? It was Reflections in the Nile by J. Suzanne Frank. We discussed this book in September 2006. Well there is a recent report that Egyptian authorities found a mummy in 1903 and it has now been identified as the pharaoh Queen Hatshepsut who ruled over Egypt in the 15th century. DNA bone samples are being compared to the mummy Nefreteri, Hathshepsut's grandmother.

This month, the Discovery channel will broadcast a documentary about these findings.
