Egyptian Mummy

I was reading an archaeology magazine the other day and came across an interesting article about the first Egyptian mummy taken to Ireland. It was in 1835. A young woman, 22 yrs. old, the daughter of a priest. Her name was Takabuti. There were a few peculiarities about her, such as an extra tooth and an extra vertebrae. When they did a DNA scan (recent of course) she was a closer match to Europeans than Egyptians. She died young because she was murdered, stabbed in the back. What would a time machine tell us?
