KV60


KV60
   A small, undecorated tomb in the Valley of the Kings. It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1903. It contained some mummified geese and meat offerings and two female mummies. One mummy was in a coffin inscibed with the name of the great royal nurse In-Sitre. The tomb was reopened by Edward Ayrton in 1906, and the coffin and mummy were likely then removed to the Cairo Egyptian Museum. The other mummy remained in the tomb, which was opened again in 1989–1990, when it was cleared by a team from Pacific Lutheran University. It was long suggested that one of the female mummies might be that of Queen Hatshepsut, and it was confirmed that the mummy in the coffin was indeed hers in 2007 by matching a broken tooth in a box with her name to a similar broken tooth on the mummy.
