Christine el Mahdi ,authour of several Egyptology books and a marvelous lecturer died recently - I believe on the 7th Feb. of colon cancer.

She was buried in a biodegradable coffin. I understand the plaque on the tree that will mark her grave will read -in latin -I'm dead? I demand a second opinion.


Her books include
Exploing the world of the Pharohs (as Christine Hobson)
Mummies,myth & Magicin ancient Egypt
Tutankham,the life & death of a boy king

I have the last book, the Tutankhamun one. O_O

That is really sad.

Though I like that plaque. Cool That is epic.
