In the one of the Discovery Channel's videos they show them extracting from
deep inside a femur. Not sure there would be much chance for contamination

...from the study....

These results were repeatedly obtained
with DNA extracted from 2 to 4
different biopsies per mummy; moreover,
they differed from the Y profiles of
the male laboratory staff and were independently
reproduced twice in a second
laboratory physically isolated from
the first, data-generating laboratory.
