Dr. Hawass Examines the KV55 Mummy

Dr. Hawass examines the mummy from the tomb KV 55 in the basement of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo for the making of a documentary. Since it was found in 1907, this skeletonized mummy has been the subject of Egyptological debate over whether or not this is the body of the controversial pharaoh Akhenaten of the 18th Dynasty.
