Next up is the scary "screaming one" (DB320A), and here's another problem with the show. It has fallen victim to Screaming Mummy Syndrome, or SMS. Normally a mummy's mouth was held tightly shut by the wrappings, but sometimes that didn't happen and the jaw dropped down, so it looks like the mummy is screaming. You can see that in other Egyptian mummies (such as Unknown Man E from Deir el-Bahri) and most recent bodies, like some of the desiccated corpses at Palermo, Sicily. It is not, however, the person's final, agonized death scream.
Some 18th Dynasty queens were mummified with their left hand held high and diagonally across their chest, and several pharaohs have both hands across their chest.

That is very interesting. I recently watched the documentary involving the possible discovery of Nefertiti by Dr. Fletcher. I had always thought that only Pharohs had the right arm crossed over the chest? When they discovered the discarded right arm in a corner, it seemed to match up perfectly. This was one of the primary reasons I was buying into it.
