Yes it would! Was he killed was it an accident? Guess we will never know but I would like to find out if I was really his mother Very Happy Very Happy
Maybe the S.C.E.A should get off their high horse and allow some widespread and conclusive DNA testing.

Smile I would like DNA testing on mummies , but at the same time not. Because if I died and mummified my body, I would not want people later to mess with me. But , I would want if I was murdered , for them to know by who and all. I would also want them to know who my parents were. So it is kind of an either way thing. Very Happy I think it is great what they did to Tutankhamuns mummy. Letting it stay at his tomb.

I believe they let him stay in his tomb because they discovered the atmosphere in there was better and didn't aid in the deterioration of his body.

I thought it was just because he was one of the only kings found in situ. His body is so deteriorated they may as well leave him in a tomb as he couldn't be exhibited. I thought it was just respectful as it was where he was found.

You can't see him though, as he is still in his secondary coffin. That coffin is also sat inside the stone one so there is little to see in the actual tomb. It is actually quite disappointing as a visiting site. Try the tomb of Horemheb - very impressive.

I know you can't see him , Smile but it is nice that he is still there in his tomb. Horemheb's tomb would be fun to explore. He also was around at the time of Tutankhamun , even another reason to check it out.

Si-Amon's correct, though. I really wasn't very impressed with Tutankhamen's tomb--there is nothing much to see, except for the annex, which has the only wall paintings in the tomb, and even those are very unpersonable. Tutankhamen's body is not visible at all. It's easy to imagine that it was not a royal tomb--one that was pressed into service because Tut had died so unexpectedly. I've heard it said that they think it was originally meant for Aye, when he was vizier. Whomever it was originally for, an incredible amount of items were crammed into a small space. It boggles the mind to see all of Tut's things in the museum at Cairo, and to realize they were all in such cramped quarters. Carter used one of the close tombs in the valley as a preservation-area, before the things were sent on to Cairo. It was years of pains-taking work for him to empty the tomb.

I was also unimpressed with the tomb, but at least you can say that you went to it and it isn't very expensive to go into. It is a nice thing to do, it may not be as grand as that of Merenptah or as beautiful as that of Ramses IX but it is worth the visit in my opinion. I am glad I went.

An effinate man, with breasts, wide hips, small genetalia, huge lips, a narrow face, strange eyes, abnormally long fingers and toes with a huge pot belly? I dont mind if you want to be Akhenaten, but that is just strange!

Nefertari's husband was Rameses II.

You probably meant Nefertiti, whose head found at Amarna shows what a beautiful woman she was--really can't understand her attraction to Akhenaton--who was, shall we say, less that good-looking if his portraits are correct. Ah well--no accounting for taste! Very Happy
