Under the Seal of the Necropolis (Unter dem Siegel der Nekropole) Vol. 5
Andrew M. Chugg: The Lost Tombs of the Last Pharaohs
This study presents a fascinating analysis of where the tombs of the kings of the 30th Dynasty may be found (Nectanebo I, Teos (Djedhor) and Nectanebo II). Furthermore, a fresh connection between the sarcophagus of Nectanebo II (now in London) and the Star-Shield block in Venice is made, showing that these funerary encasements may once have formed an ensemble. In this double sarcophagus the mummy of Alexander the Great may once have been buried. The new evidence presented may confirm that the remains supposed to be those of St Mark the Evangelist lying within a coffin in the high altar of St Mark's in Venice are actually the bones of Alexander the Great.

Michael E. Habicht: The cranial data base of Ancient Egypt
The material collection analyses one of the most comprehensive anthropological data collections from Ancient Egypt and Nubia, based on the meta-analysis of old reports, studies and new measurements.
