Editorial Reviews

LOVED BY A KING. HATED BY AN EMPIRE. ERASED FROM HISTORY. SHE COULD BE THE BIGGEST FIND SINCE KING TUT. Has the famed Egyptian beauty, Queen Nefertiti, been found in a secret chamber deep in the Valley of the Kings? A Discovery Channel Quest expedition, led by Dr. Joann Fletcher and a team of internationally renown scientists from the University of York Mummy research Team, hopes to find out. If they're right, the finding will be one of the greatest archaeological discoveries since Nefertiti's stepson - King Tutankhamen - was discovered in 1922. "Great Royal Wife" of the "renegade" pharaoh Akhenaten, Nefertiti was a mother of six who helped lead a religious revolution that changed Egypt and the world forever. Yet after her death, her enemies destroyed all evidence of Nefertiti's life. Now, drawing on 13 years of research, Fletcher and her team bring Nefertiti's turbulent reign to life as never before using cutting-edge computer animations to recreate ancient Egypt's great temples; x-rays to reveal the telltale signs of foul play on her mummy; and forensic graphics to recreate the mummy's face. Have they found the ancient world's greatest beauty?

Don't make the same mistake I did!

Unsurprised by the controversy, she told the Discovery channel: "It's easy for people to take potshots at me.
Gino Litvak
There is a modern drive to turn Nefertiti into some kind of feminist anachronism and have her rule as a man.

I just read that Joann Fletcher got banned from doing Egyptology in Egypt because she didn't follow Zahi "Zowie" Hawass' procedure of letting him announce everything. He does indeed appear in the video, making quite reasonable remarks about how there's no evidence in favor of Fletcher's thesis. Kent Weeks, excavator of KV5, also appears, suggesting that her claim isn't that farfetched, but that it will have to wait for better technology in coming years to rule it in or out. That is also reasonable.

The real reason to watch this video is to laugh and laugh and laugh. Fletcher has an unfounded belief that she has found the mummy of Nefertiti; she refuses to be convinced otherwise; she takes every single disconfirmation (which is every test performed for this video, other than her own subjective views about the mummy's hairstyle and ear piercings) in stride, getting more and more wild-eyed, and making one unsubstantiated claim after another.

Perhaps my favorite is her trip to the unfinished tomb of Akhenaten -- Fletcher stands at the head of what would have been the sarcophagus and claims that Nefertiti stood there and conducted the rites for her dead husband. Fletcher also refers to Akhenaten as "such a terrible politician" and grants Nefertiti entirely imaginary characteristics and abilities.

All existing evidence shows that Nefertiti predeceased Akhenaten. It's possible that her tomb was plundered shortly after her death and the end of the 18th dynasty, as a gold artifact bearing her name was found on the Ulu Burun wreck. There is a modern drive to turn Nefertiti into some kind of feminist anachronism and have her rule as a man. Fletcher appears to subscribe to that view, but gives no attribution for or reference to its originator.

I saw this documentary when it originally aired on the Discovery Channel, and was more than a little disappointed. All the hype it got made me think they had FOUND Nefertiti, and that the discovery was the greatest thing since Tut himself. After spending two hours (excessive--it could have easily been one) waiting for the moment of groundbreaking acheivement--nothing more than speculation.
Essentially, there's a lady who claims to have found Nefertiti's remains stashed away in an out of the way place in the Valley of the Kings. The figure is deformed, the valuables gone, and only the damaged corpse remains, yet through various tests of sorts (which are very fascinating themselves), she is convinced that she has, indeed, found the lost queen. That's the claim, but it is really nothing more than speculation. There is some compelling evidence, sure, but nothing conclusive.
The sad thing is that several other major Egyptologists--the guy who found KV5 and the Egyptian in charge of approving digs in the Valley of the Kings--aren't convinced it's Nefertiti. It is possible that they don't want to admit that their work has been overshadowed, but I doubt that's the case. Essentially, this woman is convinced she's found Nefertiti, but she's about the only one convinced of that.
Again I have to say that this documentary was substantially less interesting than it was hyped up to be. It's a dig, maybe there's some cool stuff, that's it. Overall it was interesting, but certainly not worth owning unless you are into Egyptology in a big way. If you want a great documentary on recent finds, try Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids.

This whole video is based on twisted facts and outright lies. The author Joanne Fletcher has been banned from entering Egypt. Her career is over because of the absolute abuse of the facts. The mummy she identified as Nefertiti has been proven to be a teenage boy. The Discovery Channel should be ashamed of themselves.

Format: DVD
Nefertiti Resurrected was originally a Discovery Channel production, and shares common flaws with other of their works--primarily, a tendency toward padding and sensationalism. As these shows are originally intended for television, they are designed with commercial breaks every 10 to 15 minutes with lots of back announcing for those who came in late or who suffer severe short term memory loss. It's extemely annoying, and in a DVD might well drive the viewer mad. The repetition is so constant that a half an hour could easily be cut from the show, perhaps even more, with no loss of content.
But nonetheless, the content of this production is, for the most part, superior. Anthropologist Dr. Joann Fletcher's work is featured throughout, and I felt fairly convinced by her evidence. She discovered a mummy which she believes is Nefertiti, and whether or not you agree, the sorts of evidence she gathers is diverse and fascinating. One of the highlights is the reproduction of Nefertiti's face from the skull x-rays using current forensic techniques deployed today in identifying modern corpses. Discussions of Nefertiti's role in Egypt, as consort and eventual replacement of the Pharoh Akhenaten, and ultimately her downfall, are well done--the evidence is placed in meaningful historical context. That some Egyptologists are not convinced by Fletcher's claims is not surprising and it's unlikely that a definitive answer will ever be known, barring the discovery of a tomb labelled in hieroglyphics: Nefertiti's Buried Here. But that's not really the point. The search itself, the questions raised, the methods used and the historical context are well worth your attention if you have any interest in the subject at all. I've got to say, though, that the ending is totally hokey in the worst of New Age ways...
