We now know the height of the new mummy found in the Valley of the Kings from a news report (my thanks to Andre Byrnes) was 1.55m including wrappings.  She was buried in an oversize coffin of 2m.

The only other new details is that the tomb was found by accident ("stumbled upon" to use a phrase I was criticised for using when the tomb was first announced) when the University of Basel was building a low wall to protect KV40 from flash floods.  The announcement also repeats that Nehemes Bastet is the first woman without an obvious connection to the royal family found in the Valley of the Kings.
