Czech archaeologists uncover last resting place of Khentakawess, believed to be a previously unknown wife of Pharaoh Neferefre

Julia Heisler's curator insight, January 5, 10:13 PM

This article depicts how Czech archaeologists have unearthed the tomb of a previously unknown queen believed to have been the wife of Pharaoh Neferefre who ruled 4,500 years ago. The tomb was discovered in Abu Sir, an Old Kingdom necropolis southwest of Cairo where there are several pyramids dedicated to pharaohs of the Fifth Dynasty, including Neferefre. The name of his wife had not been known before the find, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty said in a statement. He identified her as Khentakawess, saying that for the "First time we have discovered the name of this queen who had been unknown before the discovery of her tomb." Her name and rank had been inscribed on the inner walls of the tomb, probably by the builders, Damaty said. This is related to international relations because this shows how many cultures and civilizations are still being discovered, and how there are cultures yet to be discovered.
