Misc. Notes
Psusennes I was the third king of the Twenty-first Dynasty and is probably the best known of all this dynasty's kings. This is because of the
discovery of his intact tomb during the excavation of Tanis. His mummy was found in the tomb and was that of an old man. Also is the tomb
was a second burial chamber was for his sister and wife, Queen Mutnodjme. At some time later, her mummy and funerary objects were
removed. King Amunemope's mummy and funerary objects were placed there after he was moved from another tomb that was not too far
away. There were also several other mummies found in this tomb as well. These mummies were thought to have been placed here to be
protected from the destruction of the other tombs around.
