"What’s peculiar about the tomb is that it contains only a single person and includes a remarkable wealth of mostly foreign objects, as well as artifacts typically associated with women."--National Geographic.

What seems odd to me is that, without an further information, we are meant to understand that combs and mirrors were only used by women 3,500 years ago when this grave was prepared.  It seems to me than men then, as men now, had hair and needed to look at themselves from time to time.  If there is anything specifically marking these items as the combs and mirror of a woman, the article does not mention it.
