Tomb of an unknown queen

Yesterday’s archaeological discovery of the day was the tomb of an unknown queen–a woman named Khentkawes III–at Abusir in Egypt. The lady may have been the wife of King Neferefre of the Fifth Dynasty.  You can read more about it in the Washington Post or Art Daily (the articles have different photos).

  1. Yay, I thought of you when I heard this on the radio this morning. The Czech researcher who was interviewed on the BBC … bet you know him, as the Egyptology community is not huge, right?

    • Actually, I have never met him… but I certainly do know of him! The Czech team has worked on site for decades, so I’ve been following their research.
      And you’re right, the Egyptological community is not huge!
