I'm glad they're moving towards looking into the lives of the non-royals in Egypt. It will I think give a lot more information on their society.

She still had all her teeth and none of them were decayed.  Weird.

I am so glad they are able to use scans in place of unwrapping now.

I will over look the pun.  Wink

New information found on the Royal Canon Papryus (or the Turin Papryus) is leading Egyptologists to believe that the line of kings may have to be changed, as an expedition of two Egyptologists from the British Museum went to Italy to look for the missing fragments of the Papryus, which were later found in the basement in a closet.  Shocked

Here is the link to a German news article on the subject: Using the Google Translator tool, so don't be surprised if some sentences are a bit confusing, but it seems pretty well done.

There hasn't been a "public announcement" on it, but apparently they are going to be waiting for the papryus to get back to England and discuss there what to do, as new names need to be added, as well as changing some of the dates.

And from the article, here is some info on the papryus:
Quote
The Papyrus of Turin is one of the few existing documents that list the dynasties of Egyptian pharaohs and a significant historical importance. It was written during the reign of Ramesse II (1297-1213 BC) on the back of a papyrus that has been used. Found intact at Thebes by Bernard Drovetti beginning of the 1800's, it is fragmented into hundreds of pieces during transport in Italy and has been painstakingly reconstructed in part. The list of pharaohs partially coincides with the similar lists of rulers, like the one written by the historian Manetone in the Hellenistic period, or those found at Abydos and Saqqara. The importance of the papyrus preserved in the Egyptian Museum in Turin, however, lies in a neutral way by which the dynasties are given. Unlike other lists, this has not been done to celebrate a particular pharaoh compared to others, but contains the names of all the rulers, even those considered minor or "usurpers."

This is certainly an interesting find. I wonder how much it has changed?
