Combine what you know about how people really lived in Egypt. Imagine why the particular articles in the tomb were chosen to follow the person into the afterlife. Now put it all together and fabricate the day to day life of a king-to-be's mother who wants to be king herself and you get a women's lib story set in 1500 B.C.

SUBJECTS:     Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt -- Fiction
                        Egypt -- Civilizations -- To 332 B.C. -- Fiction
                        Kings, queens, rulers, etc. -- Fiction
