Mystery mummy discovered in Pharaoh Thutmose III’s temple – #HuttonPulitzer

The team who made the discovery has been excavating the temple and the necropolis beneath since 2008.

Spanish researchers excavating the temple of Pharaoh Thutmose III, which stands on the west bank of the river Nile, have discovered a well-preserved Egyptian mummy. Preliminary analysis suggest it dates back to a time known as the Third Intermediate Period – as far back as 1075-664 BC.

The find occurred in the context of an archaeological mission known as the “Thutmosis III temple project”, which began in 2008. Referred to as the Temple of Millions of Years of Thutmosis III, the monument is dedicated to one of the most famous pharaohs of Egyptian history, who came to be known as the “Egyptian Napoleon”, due to his many conquests.
