Zahi Hawass to Announce Results of DNA Tests this Fall

Originally published September 20, 2009 | Em Hotep | by Keith Payne

I've been on the edge of my seat for months to hear more news (and results) about this DNA testing procedure on the Dynasty 18 mummies Zahi Hawass had announced a while ago. I'm overzealous to learn the findings are on their merry why to the public this fall. I'm praying that the results have identified more unknown mummies than lost them, as had happened in 2007 with Djehuti-mes I (you know him as Tuthmosis I). What was thought to have been he was a much younger man. Rats! (or is it "Scarabs!"?) Salima Akram will certainly have something to say about this.

    I can't help but wonder (and worry) if the rush to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time might lead to hasty conclusions, or even worse, hasty work and methodology.

    Whatever happens, it is going to be a busy year for us bloggers!
