'Strouhal E, 1984: Princess Khekeretnebty and Tisethor: Anthropological Analysis. Anthropologie (Brno) 22, 2: 171-183'.
A full description of the human remains found by the Czechoslovak Institute of Egyptology in the Mastaba of Princess Khekeretnebty at Abusir (Egypt) is presented. They belong to two persons, in accord with the textual evidence found in the Mastaba. The female sex determined according to the anthropological material agrees with the names of the Princess Khekeretnebty and of another woman Tisethor. The proprietor of the Mastaba, Princess Khekeretnebty, was 30—35 year-old, the other woman, buried later, was a 15—16 year-old girl. Metric, epigenetic and descriptive features show morphological and genetic similarity of both persons, strengthened by finding of identical blood group A. Both skeletons are of a strikingly gracile body build with only the slightest muscular development. A hypothesis of their blood-relationship fits well to the scarce textual as well as to the iconographic evidence.
