I don't no where to put this question, so I'll asked it here. What caused Jane Flecher to be banned from doing any more work in Egypt?

She was banned from doing anymore work in Egypt, because she is claiming the younger woman to be Nefertiti. She didn't follow the proper procedure of claiming the name of a mummy without enough research to make the claim. She is the only one stating that the KV35 younger lady to be Nefertiti. There is not enough evidence to make such a claim. She even got the Discovery Channel to put her on making the claim. She had a facial recontruction done with a digital skeletal scan and a graphic designer to finish the completed bust. You don't get a graphic desigher to do a facial recontruction. You get a forensic expert trained in that field to do facial recontructions. They never mention who this designer is. So Dr. Hawass got angry about her being on the T.V. show and making such a claim. And, the facial recontruction does not match the bust of Nefertiti made in stone and plaster by Thotmose who created it in Nefertiti's life time.

And yet Zahi Hawass even got "The Younger Woman"'s gender wrong and as far as I am aware has yet to acknowledge it!

I don't know what the "rules" are in Egypt re: Egyptology, but I can't help wondering if Dr. Hawass isn't still smarting over his little oopsie? :twisted:

I agree! Egyptology is about discovering and developing theories. I think it just pissed Mr. Hawass off! I believe he likes to act like a diva! Heaven forbid if anyone speak against him :lol: :lol: :lol: Poor Fletcher! I hope she is able to continue her work now that Hawass is gone. :wink:
