Mummy, I'm Home!

Mummy of Queen Seshestet

The remains of a mummy thought to belong to a queen who ruled 4,300 years ago have been discovered in Egypt.

Archaeologists discovered the body of Queen Seshestet in a pyramid in Saqqara.

The Queen’s name wasn't with her remains, but Egypt's top archaeologist Zahi Hawass said: "All the signs indicate that she is Seshestet.”

Experts believe Queen Seshestet ruled Egypt for 11 years and was one of only a few female pharaohs.


Mr. Hawass said it took five hours to open the sarcophagus – a special coffin made of stone – where the remains were found wrapped in linen, pottery and gold wrappings. All the valuables that are usually placed inside a pharaoh’s sarcophagus had already been stolen by grave robbers.

My dad owns a mechanic shop and I sort of help him over the summer. Based on which one is easier to work on, I would have to say Chevy. Ford really just puts parts in odd places! Driving or riding, no idea. My family doesn't own any fords (surprise surprise) because we don't like working on them!
