The March/April 2009 issue of Archaeology magazine is dedicated to tell the story of Meresamun, a temple singer in ancient Egypt and a priestess of Amun. Meresamun lived in Thebes, Egypt around 800 B.C.
The magazine is also highlighting an exhibition, “The Life of Meresamun: A Temple Singer in Ancient Egypt,” being presented by the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute Museum. The presentation at the Oriental Institute Museum runs through December 6.
I encourage you to visit the web page of Archaeology magazine and see some amazing photos of Meresamun’s mummy and read summaries of the article published in the magazine:
