Vends meches de cheveux de la momie de Ramses II
Thanks to Thierry Benderitter from for this news item. The son of one of the French scientists who took care of Ramesses II's mummy during its stay in France in 1976 is selling at auction what were apparently samples taken by his father: a lock of hair, but also fragments of embalming resin and of bandages coming from the king's mummy.
