There will always be something new!
The so-called anonymous "Elder Woman" is one of seventeen royal and other mummies
discovered in the tomb KV35 of the 18th Dynasty King Amenophis II (Amenhotep II) in 1898.
Her mummy was completely stripped naked, without a coffin, and considerably damaged in
antiquity. There was no information as to her identity. This has been and remains the subject
of wild discussion among certain egyptologists. The mummies found in KV35 are not the
subject of CESRAS research, but we include them here, as they were objects of G. Elliot
Smith's pathological studies published in full on this site.
