The royal mummies in the Cairo Museum are an important source of information about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. The remains of these pharaohs and queens can inform us about their age at death and medical conditions from which they may have suffered, as well as the mummification process and objects placed within the wrappings. Using the latest technology, including Multi-Detector Computed Tomography and DNA analysis, co-authors Zahi Hawass and Sahar Saleem present the results of the examination of royal mummies of the Eighteenth to Twentieth Dynasties. New imaging techniques not only reveal a wealth of information about each mummy, but render amazingly lifelike and detailed images of the remains. In addition, utilizing 3D images, the anatomy of each face has been discerned for a more accurate interpretation of a mummy's facial features. This latest research has uncovered some surprising results about the genealogy of, and familial relationships between, these ancient individuals, as well as some unexpected medical finds. Historical information is provided to place the royal mummies in context, and the book with its many illustrations will appeal to Egyptologists, paleopathologists, and non-specialists alike, as the authors seek to uncover the secrets of these most fascinating members of the New Kingdom royal families.

From the Nile to the Hudson, the story of how two Egyptian mummies joined an American museum collection. In 1909, two mummies, one dating from the 21st Dynasty and the other from the Ptolemaic Period, arrived in Albany, New York. Purchased from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo by Albany businessman Samuel Brown for the Albany Institute of History & Art (AIHA), they have been on continuous exhibition since then and are the most popular, celebrated, and best remembered of the museum’s collections. The story of their discovery in the tombs at Deir el-Bahri and their subsequent purchase by Brown, transport by steamship from Cairo to New York City, and steamboat travel to Albany was covered extensively by the Albany newspapers, and visitors from school-aged children to senior citizens often recount stories about their first encounter with the Albany mummies. The Mystery of the Albany Mummies tells the fascinating tale of these two mummies, from their initial mummification in ancient Egypt, to their acquisition by the AIHA in 1909, and finally to 2013, when the mystery of their identities was uncovered through the intersection of historical scholarship, science, and technology. In the book, which draws on the Institute’s 2013–2014 exhibition “GE Presents: The Mystery of the Albany Mummies,” scholars from around the world use new scholarship, scientific methods, and medical technology to determine the ages, sexes, occupations, and lifestyles of these two ancient denizens of the AIHA. “A delightful and engaging tale about the final voyage of an Egyptian mummy, now housed in the AIHA. The inclusion of the highlights of the Albany museum’s Egyptian collection, which are lavishly illustrated, and the accompanying essays provide a wonderful exploration of the history of collecting, and the links between Egypt and America on economic, sociocultural, and mystical levels. A feast for both the eyes and the mind!” — Salima Ikram, author of Ancient Egypt: An Introduction “The Mystery of the Albany Mummies is a lively and authoritative account of a journey of scientific discovery. The two Egyptian mummies and their coffins in the AIHA have been a source of fascination to visitors ever since they were brought from Cairo in 1909, but, as this book explains, it is only in the last decade that they have yielded up their most intriguing secrets. Illustrated with a range of artifacts from the Albany collection, the text reconstructs the vanished world in which these individuals lived over two thousand years ago. It is an object-lesson in presenting accurate and specialized knowledge to a wide audience in an attractive and accessible way.” — John H. Taylor, Assistant Keeper, Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum “A must read for scholars, history buffs, and museum-lovers alike, the story of the Albany mummies is a case study in how the intersection of scholarship and technology can provide us with a glimpse into the ancient past.” — Kara M. Cooney, author of The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut’s Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt

Celebrated in literature and Hollywood movies, the lives of the Ancient Egyptian queens have become synonymous with power, beauty, and glory. Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Nefertari and Hatchepsut are familiar names today, although the women themselves are not known as well as the mythology around them. The wives, mothers, or daughters of pharaohs, their influence on three thousand years of ancient Egyptian history is indisputable. This book offers a unique and heretofore unexplored insight into the key role they played and unveils the true nature of their political and spiritual influence, which was very different from the cliched portrayals most readers are familiar with. Some of the questions answered in this book include: What was the real status of the Egyptian queens? What was the status of second wives and concubines? What was their role in religious celebrations? What was their beauty regime?

Foreword by Egyptologist JoAnn FletcherPreface by Harold Bursztajn, M.D.With New Data on the Egyptian CT ScanWritten in the style of a fictional whodunit, this fascinating piece of historical detection will appeal to history buffs, mystery lovers, and true-crime fans. - BooklistThe greatest archaeological find of the 20th century, and perhaps of all time, was the discovery in 1922 of the tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen. Untouched for 3,300 years, the ancient tomb, filled with spectacular treasures, raised many questions about the legendary reign of this boy king. Recently Tut has been in the news again. Not only has a traveling museum exhibit of his tomb's fascinating artifacts drawn the public's attention, but also a CT scan of his body, which provides new evidence concerning the king's fate, has received a good deal of media attention. Based on this new investigation, an Egyptian team of scientists and scholars has now publicly ruled out the possibility that Tut was murdered.In this thorough and intriguing review of all of the evidence, two law enforcement specialists in forensics and the psychology of criminal behavior dispute the conclusions reached by the Egyptian team. Applying sophisticated crime-solving techniques used in the investigation of contemporary murders, Detectives King and Cooper make a compelling case that the cause of King Tut's death was most likely murder.The detectives' investigation concentrates on Tut's inner circle of close confidants. One by one, the suspects are eliminated, due to evidence or probable cause, until in the end the detectives focus on the most likely suspect.For readers who enjoy mysteries, true crime, and history, Who Killed King Tut? is both an educational read and a real page-turner.Michael R. King is a senior investigative analyst for Motorola. He is a former State Attorney General Chief of Staff and intelligence supervisor for the Utah Criminal Intelligence Center and Homeland Security.Gregory M. Cooper is a manager and analyst for Motorola. He is a former Assistant Federal Security Director for Law Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and a federal air marshal for the Transportation Security Administration.Don DeNevi is the author, coauthor, or editor of thirty-five books, including Profilers: Leading Investigators Take You Inside the Criminal Mind and Into the Minds of Madmen: How the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit Revolutionized Crime Investigation (both with John H.
