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.
