Nefertiti Ressurected: Was the body found in the tomb Nefertiti?

Posted in Ancient Egypt on January 29, 2009 by woodly11

To me I think that the body  archaeoligists found is Nefertiti. There  are many clues that were found that can prove that the body is Nefertiti. Historians say that Nefertiti was a powerful queen that though liked by many, was still hated by others. Historians have concluded that when Nefertiti was killed, the killers smashed her face in and all the items that had her face to stop her from reaching the holy place after death. Shown in the movie one of the bodies was badly beaten and had scars that resemble the information of the historians. These researchers also found out that queens of ancient egypt all wore a special wig on their heads. And in the movie near the body was a wig that resembled the special wig that historians talked about.

There was a few other clues found that also help Fletcher an archaelogist conclude that the body found was Nefertiti. Fletcher on her examination also knew of the piercings that Nefertiti had. Nefertiti was known to have two piercings on each ear and once Fletcher saw that the examined body had two piercings on each ear it was clear to Fletcher that the body was probably Nefertiti. Another supporting evidence to my opinion is that in the tomb where I think Nefertiti’s body was there was two other bodies that were discovered to be Nefertiti’s family members. So how many more clues do you need, you can clearly see that the body in the tomb is Nefertiti.
