She was of average height for the times, all of 4'6" tall. Obviously, she came from a monied background, or whatever passed for "monied" in ancient Egypt. Otherwise, she wouldn't be on display thousands of years later. She would have been wrapped in run-of-the-mill fabric and buried a few feet down. But her family was wealthy, so she got the full mummification treatment. And so she can be seen today, lying in state, as it were, so 12-year-old kids can "Oooooh" and "Ahhhhh" and "Gross" and imitate her "facial" expression.
R.I.P., Egyptian lady.
[I took this photo during Eldest's field trip to the very cool Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum last week. That's one place I think all three kids would enjoy visiting. There's even a tomb tour! Okay, it's a re-created tomb but, dude, pretty cool nonetheless.]
