Please don't assume I'm an idiot! I intentionally MADE UP false answers to every question because I was bored and am fed up of people using other people to do their homework for them. I know that everything I said was wrong. I am not 19 either. And my name certainly isnt Johnathan! And Tutankhaum wasn't 19 when he died! I find it amusing to think that I suceeded in tricking Osiris II into believing what I said about this Perciville Shellington character, considering I just made him up completely! I could easily have given correct answers but hopefully now the user in question will learn a valuable lesson- the internet is neither wholly trustworthy nor wholly believable. Heheh. That was mean, but fun.

Sorry if this seemed cruel, but see just how easily people believe online misinformation.

That's what I get for not checking my resources fully! There WAS an expedition in the early part of the 1800's, and it DID discover the burial of Tut's funeral debris, including wreaths, partially eaten meats, linen bandages, natron...I just assumed it had been lead by a person named Shellington, instead of checking my books to find the correct person. Talk about deflating my ego, Psus!

Heheh. Sorry to show you up, and you are correct. On top of which I am more than positive that the first European to catalogue the Valley of the Kings did have a very similar name to Perceville. Or aws it Percy?

Psusennes I, my warning still stands. There had better not be a repeat of this!!! I am not amused. If you are sick of such things, simply do not read these threads.

1.) I am Gregory Piquet (pronounced PK), and ...I'll say I'm 18 - 8 days away, who cares?


2.) He was about nine years old at his succession, but probably didn't have any real power until much later.


3.) He died when he was about eighteen or nineteen years old.


4.) The cause of Tutankhaten's death has yet to be known. Theories, however, of a blow to the back of the head being the cause of his demise have recently been dismissed, thanks to recent CT scans taken in January.


5.) Nope .


6.) November 4, 1922, by Howard Carter .


7.) Political reasons, like everything else! The priests of the monotheist religion worshiping Aten perhaps did not wish to be dismissed as Tutankhaten would have been apt to switch the religion back to normal after his father's rule for political reasons of his own.


8.) I love the culture, and the mystery - but it's the hieroglyphs that keep me occupied!


9.) Well, it's a tie between two things. Tutankhaten was his original name; however, after his death, or perhaps late in his life (I don't know), his name was changed to Tutankhamun. Ankhaten translates loosely into "Life of Aten", which was the sun disc worshiped by the monotheist religion. Ankhamun translates into "Life of Amun" (e.g. Amun Re, the Sun god). The second thing is that people actually care about Tutankhaten. He was a sickly little man who died because he wasn't strong enough to survive. No one cared about him for thousands of years, and when Carter found the tomb, people became full blown Egyptologists because they knew a little bit about someone else's lucky stroke that wasn't that great of a find, anyways. Besides, in ancient Egyptian culture, silver was revered as more valuable than gold.
