Em hotep,

While doing a little research, I came across  This Site which has 360 degree virtual tours of Abydos and Dendera temples.

It is an inspiration to be (virtually) standing in some of these chapels, and the zoom feature is quite handy in seeing some of the wall inscriptions :)

Since I haven't been to Egypt (yet), it is interesting to see some of the more commonly photographed inscrptions and carvings in their actual context...i.e. if you go to the room called the Iseum in the temple of Dendera, and pan straight up, there is a beautiful image of Nut and the face of Hethert that takes up the entire ceiling. I'm sure a lot of us have seen this image, but it is great to actually see it in situ :)

Senebty,

 New Royal Mummy Cache
 Luxor Times article-with pictures

A cache of mummies has been identified in the Valley of the Kings. According to the report, it seems it contains the remains of some 60 individuals, who would seem to be princes and princesses from the 18th dynasty, along with coffin fragments and cartonnage masks.

I would hope that maybe some long standing mummy identification business might eventually get cleared up as a result of this, but, I am more sure that it will wind up raising even more questions.

Either way, it is exciting, and I pray for the Kau of those mummies, that disturbing their rest might help us to understand them better.

The Brooklyn Beer brewery in Brooklyn NY has added a mural to their building which features a hieroglyphic text reading  "Beer has dispelled the illness which was in me"

Nice to know that thousands of years later, beer and hieroglyphs still go together :)

Once more, there is a new theory on the death of Tutankhamun (A!U!S!).

  This theory claims that a form of epilepsy was to blame, and also tries to tie this inherited condition with the religious experiences and upheavals of Tutankhamun's ancestors from Djehuytmose IV (A!U!S!) and his dream at the Sphinx of Giza to Akhenaten (A!U!S!) and his religious upheavals.

They also make the claim that this is the cause of the so-called "feminized" physique of the last members of the 18th Dynasty.

I think that we are past the point of grasping at straws here, especially still, in labelling what Akhenaten did as "monotheism." Any other thoughts?

Senebty!
