Creative Joyous Cat

I'm Curious!

So, I found out through AOL's mail snippets that they CT-Scanned some mummies, and one that they thought was female turned out to have male bones.  However, AOL was true-to-form in having very skimpy coverage, with no links to any more complete story.  Does anyone out there have a link to more details?  Why did they think it was a woman "for centuries"?  Do the hieroglyphs on the sarcophagus identify the body as such?

Thanks!
