The media is in a frenzy over Nefertiti mummy; at least 26 stories in the last two hours; for example see Nefertiti Unwrapped? Looks Like It?.

Here's a shot of the mummy (at bottom, left). l'll take the statue any day.
All of you cheapskates (yes, Big Al, I mean you) who don't want to buy a copy of my book Travels in Northern Mongolia: you can Read an Excerpt Here for free!
I have been picking on Berlin, Germany lately, so it is only fair that I post a story from New York, New York. See Woman Kills Man with Her High-Heeled Shoe.
See "U.K. Scientist May Have Found Nefertiti Mummy"

Statue of Nefertiti in the Eygptian Museum in Berlin, Germany. For more photos see Egyptian Museum. Nefertiti, all of you Egyptologists are no doubt aware, was the wife of the solar-cultist Akhnaton: for a biography of Akhnaton see Son of the Sun: The Life and Philosophy of Akhnaton, King of Egypt by Savitri Devi. For an expose of Savitri Devi see Hitler's Priestess: Savitri Devi, the Hindu-Aryan Myth and Neo-Nazism by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke.
