Quotes from the news wire:
Building on work at the site by a Hungarian mission, Kathleen has confirmed the presence of a Ptolemaic period Isis temple within the larger Osiris temple that dominates the site, add to this a hoard of coins with Cleopatras portrait on them, and other Greco-Roman period finds not [the] least, fragments of statuary and mummies and we can certainly say that Taposiris Magna was active during Cleopatras reign.
Its quite normal for Egyptians to want to be buried near their influential leaders, and Kathleen [Martinez] has made some remarkable discoveries in the vicinity that feature in the film [documentary], including a once gold-leaf covered mummy. This definitely makes for [interesting] TV, but suggesting that people at this site are crowding around [Cleopatras tomb] specifically is a tough argument to make.
Its worth pointing out that there is much to this place besides Cleopatra though archaeological work here is set to help us understand more about its role in trade between Mediterranean and African worlds, religious activity and afterlife beliefs, social structures and population. Theres also the question of how far back in time use of this place goes. Cleos just one thread of business, and we shouldnt take our eye off the bigger picture.
