Marianne Luban sent a post to the EEF lists regarding the possible reason why this new mummy is being touted as Hatchepsut, quoting part of an article in the Fall 2005 KMT magazine by Dennis Forbes on this mummy:
"It has recently been suggested to this writer that the elderly female [the
one found lying on the floor of KV60 by Don Ryan] is, in fact, that of
In-Sitre herself, and that the coffined mummy removed to the Egyptian
Museum (and stored there today), very well may be Hatshepsut--this
because the latter mummy purportedly has both arms folded across its
chest (the so-called "king's pose"); and also because the advanced age
and pendulous breasts of the uncoffined mummy are characteristics
one would expect of a wet nurse."
The mummy sitting in KV-60 right now has only one arm crossed. That seems to be the only real evidence thus far.
And. . .this story on Hatchepsut from Newsweek:
Hatshepsut's rule was peaceful, except for an early military expedition against invaders that she herself led. It was also prosperous—under her, Egypt traded with its neighbors—and has been compared to that of England's Queen Elizabeth I and Russia's Catherine the Great. Like them, she became a patron of art and architecture: by encouraging the creation of some of Egypt's finest sculptures, monumental statues, magnificent temples and stunning jewelry, she launched an artistic renaissance that would influence ancient Egyptian design and culture for centuries.
