  • 1799: Napoleon’s expedition found Hatshepsut’s tomb in KV20.
  • 1903: Howard Carter discovered Hatshepsut’s sarcophagus in KV 20, but it was empty!
  • Egyptologists did not know whether her mummy had survived. Her son, had systematically chiselled off any remnants of her reign from temples , monuments, and obelisks
  • 2007: It was discovered that a mummy in KV60, previously thought insignificant, is likely Hatshepsut!
  • How did they figure it out?
    • A broken tooth from a canopic jar in her burial chamber containing Hatshepsut’s royal seal (and her embalmed liver & stomach) was discovered after a CT scan of the jar.
    • The tooth fit almost perfectly into the space of a missing molar in the mouth of the mummy.
  • Today she is enshrined in one of the two Royal Mummy Rooms at the Egyptian Museum, with plaques proclaiming her “Hatshepsut, The King Herself”, reunited at long last with her extended family of fellow New Kingdom Pharaohs
