King Tut's Mummified Erect Penis May Point to Ancient Religious Struggle

King Tut's Mummified Erect Penis May Point to Ancient Religious Struggle | Cultural History |
Possibly the first-known mummified erect penis, and other burial anomalies, were not accidents during embalming, but rather deliberate attempts to make the king appear as Osiris, the god of the underworld, in as literal a way as possible.

A female administrator in ancient Egypt

A female administrator in ancient Egypt | Cultural History |

Although less well known to tourists, the woman named Tjat who appears in the chapel wall decoration within this tomb at Beni Hasan has been mentioned frequently in scholarly works on the Middle Kingdom.  Despite the frequent mentions, other than one article by William Ward, no one has focused much attention on her.  She clearly played an important role in Khnumhotep’s household, as she is shown three times in his tomb: in close proximity to Khnumhotep himself in the fowling scene, with Khnumhotep’s wife and daughters in a funerary cult meal scene, and inside the shrine, next to the doorway and a distance behind Khnumhotep’s daughters.
