In a newly excavated tomb in the Valley of the Kings, a team from the University of Basel have found at least 30 bodies. But who are all these people? To solve this puzzle, the team must work with the fragments of evidence that remain, including dozens of broken pots. When these are reassembled they reveal the names of many of the occupants, including several royal princesses. The team turn to Professor Frank Ruehli, world-renowned physical anthropologist from Zurich University, to see what information he can glean from the broken mummies themselves. He soon establishes that there are not 30 bodies, but more than 90, and most of them are women from the time of Amenhotep III.
