hi...
i read the article too and have been wondering why it took so long for someone to make the connection that it had to be an accident - based on the angle of the strike. i'm surprized the scientific community hasn't squashed this by now. someone even suggested that the cupbearers were in cahoots w/the Queen to poison him. would traces of the poison be left somehow in the bones?

too much CSI i guess.

peace.

In the CT scan recently completed, there is absolutely no evidence of any type of blow to the head being responsible for the death. The conclusion reached by the team of researchers was that he died of a massive infection, and was probably caused by breaks on the knees.
Any evidence of poisoning of any sorts would probably be gone.
So we're still left with some puzzle as to his death. It may have been an accident; it may have been the results of war. (traces of gold foil--perhaps from his armour--were found in the wounds in the knees) And of course, the possiblity of poisoning cannot be ruled out, but pointing a finger at his queen or any other individual would be, at this time, mere guess-work.

Osiris, it may also be possible that the traces of gold found in the wound(s) may have been remnants of an attempt to heal his wounds through Chrysotherapy in the form of a salve or ointment near his time of death.

That's more than possible, but I guess it's just speculation, at this point. That is, unless a papyrus is found written by the doctors that treated Tutankhamen, and tells us what procedures were used!

As Pharoh I would have thought Tut would be surounded by gold foil. Almost anything near him could have had it on e.g. clothes, furniture , chariots

Those few who really did read Dr. Velikovsky's book, called
"
AGES in CHAOS" concepted in 1949 but printed in 1950
may conclude with me that King Thut was killed in a Duell incited by the two State Marshalls: General Aye ( Neter- Heq.)and General ( PHTA-Em-)Horemheb.

General Aye became Pharaoh, but as regent for Thut's Son who reigned 10 years after Thut's death

In Velikovsky's Greek version this little known sonof King Thut('Eteocles.') is called LAODAMAS ( married to princess Astymedusa.)
I wonder what the egyptian equivalent-names may be ?a Thutmose-6 ? ?

Afterwards Gen Horemheb took over from ther SON of King Thut, but he [probably seems to have contended the reign as Vice-Pharaoh of the Assyrian King Salmanasser-3(" Suppiluliumas-3")and with a SETI-1

General RAMMESSES-1 is Velikovsky's equivalent for YOLAUS(= AEOLUS.)

Man. I wonder what Velikosky was sniffing to go off on such a dream trip when he was writing his book!
Such "facts" are laughable in the best--absolutely wierd!

Wait....duel? O_o Not to offend, but...if Tut was involved in a duel with his ADVISORS...wait...whoa...what the...this makes my soul weep. Crying or Very sad Tut was a KING, if his advisors challenged him to a duel he can EASILY put them to death for treason against the crown. Or something like that... Laughing You know what I mean!! Osiris II, help me out here, am I right? At least in part?

Pharaoh's word or wishes were absolute law. If any of his advisors even [b]hinted[/b] at wanting a duel, I'm sure he could easily order them to death without ever stepping down from his throne to "dirty" his hands with mere physical contact with a "humble" commoner..

Cool it, Tutness. You'll run into all sorts of off-the-wall ideas when talking about the ancient Egyptians.

I don't know what happened! Computer glitches frustrate and anger me!

It should have been "hinted" in bold.

This I have come to realize. Laughing And "Off-the-wall" is an understatement in some cases in this forum. And thank you for backing me up, Osiris. Much appreciated. Cool

A duel is not impossible - but only if Tut was some sort of lunatic like the Roman Comodus.
