Lecture on: “Hatshepsut: the She King”
National Geographic Society
Wed, Aug 9th, 2017 (6:00 pm to 7:00 pm)
RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hatshepsut ruled Egypt as King, and when she was gone her images were removed from the many monuments, she was forgotten on the king lists. She had been expunged from history. Using a CT scanner donated by National Geographic Society and Siemens, we now know the exact mummy of Hatshepsut, an intriguing story that comes down to a single tooth.
Finding the mummy brought new insights into the rule of Hatshepsut which National Geographic Magazine reported. Photographer Kenneth Garrett will talk through the evidence using his photographic documentation to explain the time of Hatshepsut’s rule, the mystery of her mummy, and her ultimate disappearance from the Egyptian Historical records of leadership.
