Egyptian Mummy's Elaborate Hairstyle Revealed in 3D

Nearly 2,000 years ago, at a time when Egypt was under the control of the Roman Empire, a young woman with an elaborate hairstyle was laid to rest only yards away from a king's pyramid, researchers report. She was 5 feet 2 inches in height, around age 20 when she died, and was buried in a decorated coffin whose face is gilded with gold. A nearby pyramid, at a site called Hawara, was built about 2 millennia before her lifetime. The location of her burial is known from archival notes. High-resolution CT scans reveal that, before she was buried, her hair was dressed in an elaborate hairstyle.

Nile Cruises Packages

A Nile Cruise trip is a very enjoyable experience that any visitor must do when he visit Egypt. A Nile Cruise boat is a highly appointed, floating, 5-star hotel, with most of the facilities of a normal 5-star hotel, including a relaxing sun deck and swimming pool. All your meals are included, though beverages and bottled water are not included. You will have your own en-suite, air-conditioned cabin (we book upper deck cabins wherever possible), and full use of all the boats facilities (restaurants, ships, sun deck, swimming pool, etc) We use several different cruise boats on the Nile, and we will inform you exactly which boat we will use enough time before your departure, as the boats shuttle back and forth on the Nile between Aswan and Luxor, with regular breaks for cleaning and maintenance. However, we regularly inspect to ensure they are of the same 5-star deluxe standard.

Ancient Egypt: The civilization of God’s wrath

The pharoahs graves were dug up and looted. Their bones broken, their sarcophagus opened and their gold taken. Their tombs raided and their weapons sold off. Their graves moved or erased and or covered up. And this is the following of the nine gods. As I said in another chapter here, nine is of the occult and Egypt was one of the deepest of occult civilizations.
From their beliefs in the book of the dead and its magic spells to pass through the nine gates of the underworld to their building of the pyramids and their idols of half men, half animal gods. Their love was for gold and is of the god of riches and wealth. And all this and one man, one mild man God used to go in and go out and with him, take many out of bondage and slavery.
One man in a robe and staff to go up against the most advanced civilization of Egypt and against the pharoah! The place where the largest of structures of Earth have been built. And Moses walked it off like a good sport.

Wanderung vom Tal der Königinnen (QV) durch die Berge, vorbei am Sanktuar des Ptah und der Meretseger, nach Dier el Medina und von da nach Qurna.

Wir nehmen euch heute mal auf die "kleine" Wanderung mit.
Wir sind ins Tal der Königinnen (QV) das auch "Biban el-Harim" genannt wird gefahren und haben uns da erst die Gräber angesehen.
Als erstes kommt man an dem Grab der Nerfertari vorbei. Das Grab der großen Königlichen Gemahlin Nefertari Meri-en-Mut die Ehefrau von Ramses II. QV 66 ist 1904 von dem Ägyptologen Ernesto Schiparelli entdeckt worden. Die J.Paul Getty Stiftung hat das Grab für fast 10 Millionen US-Dollar restauriert und 1995 wieder für die Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht.
Leider ist das Grab nur noch mit Genehmigung aus Kairo, verbunden mit einer hohen Summe (es wird von 20000 LE geredet Stand 2007) und einem Eintrittsgeld von 100LE zu besichtigen
Das Tal der Königinnen (250 m x 140 m) ist etwas größer als das Tal der Könige. Hier sind die Gräber entlang des Wadis ausgerichtet …

Saffgräbern in el-Tarif

this article was taken from www.isis&osiris .de

El-Tarif ist in dem Gebiet nördlich des Totentempels Sethos I. zu finden. Er wird auch als Antef-Friedhof bezeichnet, da hier drei große Grabanlagen gefunden wurden die den Antef-Herrschern (-Königen) zugeschrieben werden. Es handelt sich um Saff el- Kisasija, Saff el-Baqar und Saff el-Dawaba das wir auch besucht haben.
Bei der südlichsten Grabanlage Saff el-Dawaba handelt es sich wahrscheinlich um das Grab Antef I. Die mittlere Grabanlage, Saff el-Kisasija wird Antef II. zugeschrieben da dort die sogenannte Hundestele (Grabstele) gefunden wurde, auch wurde das Grab im Papyrus Abbott erwähnt. Saff el Baqar wurde als drittes Grab errichtet und wird Antef III. zugewiesen. (Quelle: Arnold El-Tarif S. 22)
Mariette soll hier im hintergrund auch noch noch Reste von Ziegelpyramiden gefunden haben.
Arnold erwähnt weiter das hier 250 Gräber auf diesem Friedhof gefunden w…


For the Ancient Egyptians, Abydos was one of the holiest sites in the world. As the cult center of the god Osiris and gateway to the underworld (believed to lie under the nearby hills), it was a popular place of pilgrimage and burial. Today, Abydos is a large archaeological site in northern Upper Egypt, often visited in conjunction with nearby Dendera. Today the pilgrims are New Age devotees following in the footsteps of Dorothy Eady (d. 1981), who believed herself to be the reincarnation of an Abydos temple priestess. The main monument at Abydos is the Temple of Seti I, built around 1300 BC by Seti and his son Ramses II. It is especially notable for its fine reliefs, considered among the best of the New Kingdom.
History Abydos has been used as a burial site and sacred site since predynastic history. It was originally sacred to the jackal-headed god Wepwawet, who "opened the way" to the realm of the dead. Anhur appeared in the XI Dynasty at Abydos; Anubi…

Griffith Institute Squeezes made in Theban tomb TT 57, of the Overseer of Granaries of Upper and Lower Egypt, Khaemhet, of the reign of Amenophis III (1391-1353 BC)

Concept and editing: Jaromir Malek
Cataloguing and editorial assistance: Elizabeth Fleming
Scanning: Junghwa Choi and Jenni Navratil
  Griffith Institute, Oxford
Although the tomb of Khaemhet has been re-recorded in modern times, V. Loret's incomplete publication in Mémoires publiés par les membres de la Mission Archéologique Française au Caire i (1889), 113-32 pls. i-iv has not yet been superseded. The squeezes presented here almost certainly show details which can no longer be seen in the tomb. All the descriptions and the plan have been taken from B. Porter, R. L. B. Moss and E. W. Burney, Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Reliefs, and Paintings, i Part 1 (Oxford, 1960).
Squeezes 4.1-68D were made, or were acquired, by the Revd. Henry Stobart (1824-1895) in Egypt in 1854-5. Squeezes 1.1-15 were made by an unknown person in the 1880s or 1890s.
