'Royal Resident' is ready for prime time: Does this mummy bear the majesty of royalty? Carlos Museum patrons can make their own call when they visit “Ramesses I: The Search for the Lost Pharaoh,” running April 26–Sept. 14. Included in Emory’s 1999 purchase of a cache of Egyptian artifacts from a museum in Niagara Falls, Canada, the possible Ramesses mummy has been the subject of intense scrutiny since his arrival on campus. Circumstantial evidence indicates the mummy is indeed Ramesses I, ruler of Egypt from 1292–90 B.C. and progenitor of Seti I and Ramesses II (“The Great”), two of ancient Egypt’s most celebrated pharaohs.Click here or above for the full story.
