We had an interesting talk by Dylan Bickerstaff. Among other things he said that a lot of things we believe about mummification such as when certain processes were introduced were wrong. For instance king Tut is not in the arms crossed over the chest royal pose.
Another thing some kings had 1 hand clenched & 1 open believed to represent upper & lower egypt - the hand that was on top showed which was dominant.
