TUTANKHAMUN’S great-grandmother may have had blonde hair, after footage showed her tomb being opened for the first time in years.

“She’s so tiny and so perfect,” Bettany exclaims.

The presenter then notices something strange, the “strawberry-blonde” hair of the mummified body.

Ancient Egyptians have historically been portrayed as having brown hair.

But Egyptologist Salima Ikram explained it may not all be as it seems.
