PAST EXPLORATIONS

Mystery Explored: Nefertiti: The Mummy Returns
Expedition Dates: July 23 – August 7, 2004

Summary:

Queen Nefertiti was once considered the most beautiful and powerful woman in Egypt, renowned throughout the ancient world. But she vanished without a trace, lost to the sands of Egypt for more than 3,000 years. Only in the last century have archeologists discovered that this legendary queen really lived at all. But only fragments of her story have emerged. I endeavored to put the pieces together and uncover the true story of Queen Nefertiti. Who was this mysterious woman? Why did she disappear? And can her mummy still be found today? I followed a trail of clues into Egypt’s most sacred and secret places, exploring dark tombs and coming face-to-face with the truth of at least one ancient mummy’s identity.
