A Beautiful Woman Has Come
That would be a major discovery. If she broke traditions, it's very likely she's buried there.

my mother has a reproduction of the Nerfertiti bust that she kept on her bed side table. I always loved it and have not idea what happened to it. wouldn't it be exciting if they do find her tomb.

Once again some interesting history from the Oregon Chatterbox. I have heard of Nerfertiti, but as a kid we mostly just giggled over her name pronounced with a short "I".

this is very exciting! Wouldn't it be something to discover!

You've got me all excited about this woman coming! Let's hope she does!

If this plays out as you suggest. It would be an amazing find. What I also find amazing is your amazing historical knowledge. Do you spend any length of time in libraries researching? ;-)

I didn't even know about this. It's great! El-Sisi surely had a hand in the renewed interest as he's doing all he can to bring in money to Egypt and improve its economy (something the idiot Muslim Brotherhood had zero interest in or understanding of). Witness the new Suez Canal. Engineers told him it'd take 3-5 years. He demanded it be done in one - and succeeded. He's doing all he can to set Egypt on the road to recovery but all I ever see in the media is how he's a dictator and criticism from human rights groups. The Middle East is a hotbed of religious extremism, and it needs a strong leader to fight them. (Sorry for the political rant. International media pisses me off. They have tunnel vision.)

I read about this recently. It is a very exciting discovery if it is, in fact, true.

What interesting speculation about this woman. Perhaps discovering her tomb will shine a light on the real story but somehow I feel we will never know.

i can imagine tourists flocking to take selfies with her tomb.

We can only hope it's true!

It could be a remarkable and historic discovery. I wonder though how knowing more about here will affect what is now a mythical and romantic notion. Will it affect her allure?

I asked my son, who used to be our resident expert on all things ancient and pyramid-y, what he knew of this, but he's playing dumb. So I will take your word for it, and usurp the crown of resident ancient pyramid-y expert.

We saw the statue of Nefertiti in a museum in Germany--it was exquisite!!

At the risk of sounding a bit snarky ... do you think in 4000 years they'll be digging up the tomb of Hillary Clinton? But seriously, I saw the King Tut exhibit when it came to NY in the late '70s; it was amazing. So I hope they do find Nefertiti.

Interesting speculation.Scientists keep digging and once in awhile they find something very valuable.

How interesting and exciting! I always thought if time travel were possible, this time in history would be first on my list to visit.
By: Pixel Peeper on October 7, 2015
I'll be anxiously waiting to see it anything comes of the upcoming x-rays. Thanks for the history lesson. :)

How exciting. I hope she was perhaps the world's first true feminist (a female Pharoah). Thanks for writing about this, Stephen. I had no idea. You explained it so clearly, and I'm very curious. I also hope Steve Martin makes a new song about "King Nefertiti, the woman king."

Archaeology has always fascinated me, and after becoming acquainted with the Stargate science-fiction world, ancient Egypt has taken on a new fascination. For in the Stargate world, an evil alien race built most of the ancient Egyptian culture (along with that of the Greeks, Romans, Sumerians, Chinese, etc.). The Egyptian pyramids were actually landing pads for the alien ships, and much of this galaxy was populated with humans taken from Earth as slaves to distant planets. It might be your cup of tea, but I found the intermixing of historical reality with science fiction quite interesting.

Well that would be so cool. I'm always impressed by your knowledge of history.. thanks for sharing that.

Interesting stuff, particularly as it was only 4 months ago I was in King Tut's tomb. I wish I'd read this before I went so I could have looked for hints of other tombs around the walls of the cave.
By: Bryan Jones on October 8, 2015
I really hope this turns out to be true. What an amazing find it would be.

I did read this article on the web news but you have written it in a much more interesting light. I can't wait untl this comes out regardless of the outcome. It's fascinatinhg. What an incredible woman she was!
By: Bouncin Barb on October 9, 2015
That is fascinating.
By: Rick Watson on October 9, 2015
I was always intrigued by her because she was so beautiful as the bust portrays and some other images that have since been found . Her long neck is a big giveaway. She reminds me of an ancient Audrey Hepburn in looks anyway. This will be an amazing find if true. Funny, my hubby watched a show where some historians believe this sculpture is actually fake. My hubby mentioned it was quite good and possible. This would be a major Ouch to the Berlin Art museum
