Akhenaten Found?

An article from Dr. Hawass on the possible identification of the KV 55 mummy as being the heretic king Akhenaten. A recent CT scan apparently shows the age of the skeleton at death may be as high as 60. Dr. Hawass also makes the Ramesses VIII prediction while announcing his Valley of the Kings expedition, the first all Egyptian dig.

Good picture of the newly renovated Amarna room at the Egyptian Museum as well as the KV 55 mummy. Most interesting is the picture of the only two surviving planks from Queen Tiye's Shrine found in tomb 55.
