    15th century BC! Isn’t that an amazing find! It was a mere tooth that made this miraculous identification possible. The fact that the mummy had to be hidden because it upset the male sensibility of the time is a telling comment on the status of women during the time. Guess women have had it bad since times eternal. At times I wonder whether they are partly to blame for this age long relatively unchallenged servility… makings for another posting, hehe

    thanks for your comment and yes there is evidently a new post material here.
    cheers
