Identity Originally referred to as "Justine" until recently Dr. Andrew Nelson alongside Gayle Gibson, of the Royal Ontario Museum had discovered “Justine’s” true identity. It was discovered that "Justine" had lived around 3,000 (around 945 BCE, during the 22nd Dynasty) years ago and with the use of CT scans and other modern day technology some of “Justine’s” past was previously revealed. It was discovered that while she was mummified and her internal organs were removed that her tongue had also been taken out which is not consistent with mummification as Early Egyptians believed they would need their tongue to introduce themselves in the next life. The new findings come from an examination by Gayle Gibson, an Egyptologist at the ROM, around the context of the coffin “Justine” was found in. That excavation took place in 1905 – 1906 and involved Dr. Charles Trick Currently, the first Curator of the Royal Ontario Museum which is now celebrating its 100th anniversary. "Justine" is part of the ROM’s world-renowned Egypt collection. While examining her coffin painted flowers were used as a female determinative and an image of "Justine" was painted on the front. Beside it was written her real name, Nefert-Mut. Gibson also found the words "the chantress of Amun-Re," leading her to conclude that Nefret-Mut worked as a singer, part of a group similar to a modern church choir. Nefret-Mut lived about 2,900 years ago as a singer in a temple in Thebes. She was approximately 4-foot-11, had children, and died at age 33 "which, alas, was average," Gibson said.
