Mummy of Hatshepsut Found?

ABC News in Science reports:

Egyptologists are confident that remains found in a humble tomb in the Valley of the Kings are those of Hatshepsut, one of the most famous queens to rule ancient Egypt.

Egypt's chief archaeologist Professor Zahi Hawass is expected to announce the discovery later this week, which has been touted as the most important find in the area since the discovery of King Tutankhamen.

The candidate for identification as the mummy of Hatshepsut is believed to be one of two females found in 1903 in a small tomb.

The humble tomb is thought to be that of Hatshepsut's wet nurse, Sitre In.

Several Egyptologists have speculated over the years that one of the mummies was that of the queen, who ruled from between 1503 and 1482 BC at the height of ancient Egypt's power.

It is understood that Hawass will present new evidence this week to identify the queen.

"It's based on teeth and body parts ... It's an interesting piece of scientific deduction which might point to the truth," says an archaeologist familiar with the investigation, who asked not to be named.
