Hatshepsut's Mummy (video)

This video shows Catherine Roehrig and Zahi Hawass discussing the identification of the mummy of Hatshepsut (in 2007).

Catherine Roehrig is Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art - home of the only Hatshepsut Gallery i am aware of in the world. Her work on "Hatshepsut from Queen to Pharaoh" has been noted by me previously. I'm sure most of you know who Dr Hawass is.

The discussion takes place with Charlie Rose (an American talk show host) and lasts for 26 minutes 56 seconds.

Update: Catherine Roehrig was being interviewed before Dr Hawass aired his documentary on the mummy, so she was rather put on the spot. Her input about the "Hatshepsut- From Queen to Pharaoh" exhibition was brief but she seemed genuinely excited to talk about it. Hawass confirmed he is 100% sure we have the mummy of Hatshepsut. He discusses why in the interview.
