Senenmut lecture at Mummification Museum

Jane Akshar has summarized a recent lecture at the mummification museum. The lecture, delivered by Francisco J Martin Valentin on 3rd December 2003, focused on the Senenmut Project: "TT353, the tomb of Senenmut was discovered by Herbert Winlock in Jan 1927 and its most unique and special feature is the astronomical ceiling, the oldest in the world and in the opinion of Valentin as special as the Sistine chapel."
See the above page for her complete notes.
