Diana Buja Gives us a Much Fuller Account of the Ramses Harem Plot

 Last week, during an outburst of newsmaking by long-dead pharaohs, I noted the apparent confirmation that Ramses III had indeed been murdered by a plot in his harem. For those of you wanting to know more about these palace intrigues, Diana Buja, who actually has degrees in Egyptology among other things, offers the much fuller version, including the papyrus text of the investigation an links to the medical findings. She calls it Ramesses III and the Great Harim Conspiracy, Part I.

And for you Royal scandal fans, please note that it's subtitled, "Part I."
