If you could email an Egyptologist what kind of questions would you ask him or her?Would you ask them questions about people who little is known about or would you ask them questions about popular theories in Egyptology such as whether Tutankhamon was murdered?

This is a very interesting question. You know, I have never really thought of this before.

I think I would ask him his/her theories on some popular questions, i.e. Whos body is in KV 55, Who was the Biblical Pharaoh, etc., maybe what he/she things is behind Gatenbrinks second door, or something like that.

It would depend on the egyptologist. I have emailed a couple in the past as I was conducting personal research and had read something they had written that I wanted further comments on and such like. The questions, therefore, were relating to papers and articles they had already written.

Obviously, if I were to email someone such as Mark Lehner I would ask a pyramid related question, as this is his speciality area.

i second the statement of what kind of egyptologist it would be. because there are different questions i would ove to ask to different egyptologists. it would be hard to just ask about one subject or anything like about theories or whatever.

I'd probably ask something about Kiya. Or maybe who they thought Meritaten-Tasherit, Ankhesenpaaten-Tasherit, Beketaten and all those people were or some other such obscure Amarna-related question.

There are of course many questions that need answers but for me personally, the one persone always wanted to know more about was Kiya. Was she a foreign princess? etc What her name meant although I have been speculating on the last question. I have been reading 'A Test of Time' by David Rohl and his book gave me some ideas.
Hebrew names i.e. 'Jeramiah', would have ended 'Ya' in their original spellings. 'Ya' obviously being the name of their god. In the ancient cuiform script, the word 'Ki' was a determintive for cities. Does 'Kiya' in fact mean 'City of Ya' or something similar?
Another interesting point in the book was that in Sumerian/Mesopetamian(I forget which, don't have the book to hand) 'Ki' was another word for Heaven.
The name of 'Kiya' is too similar to the original spellings of Hebrew names to be a coincidence I feel. Was she perhaps a foreign princess after all but a Hebrew one?

she married her brother, she had 2 boyfriends, she bore Caesar's boy, her 2nd boyfriend, Mark Antony, would always give Egypt goods, and Mark's brother sharing the throne got mad and exiled Mark, she was one of the few women pharoahs, she was one of the last pharoahs, and she was supposed to be very pretty, she liked to show off (thus make men do what she wanted), and she was supposed to have a big nose. That's all the rattling I can do. If I'm wrong, correct me.

Well they weren't her boyfriends. She married them in accordance with egyptian lore which allows for polygamy. They were her husbands, both of them. Caeser's succesor Octavian was not Mark Anthony's brother he was his brother in law.
You say one of the few women pharaohs which may have been the case in ancient egypt but not in Ptolemaic egypt where it was very common. A queen was the co-ruler of her brother/husband. In addition to that Cleopatra II, III and VII ruled alone for a time. The numbers after their names are confusing because there were more than 7. Let me just count. 11 that I can think of at the moment. 13 if you count Alexander the Great's sister and step-mother, I think it was.

I'm just a smart arse with a clever mouth really:-)

If you think it's for you go for it. I'm 23 and have wasted 3 1/2 years in the army. I wish I had stayed in uni and studied egyptoloigy instead of going into the army. Too late really now.
