Mitchell reported that dark brown splotches on the decorated walls of Tutankhamun's burial chamber suggested that he had been entombed even before the paint had a chance to dry. Although there is some speculation that Tutankhamun was assassinated, the consensus is that his death was accidental. A CT scan taken in 2005 showed that he had suffered a left leg fracture shortly before his death, and that the leg had become infected. DNA analysis conducted in 2010 showed the presence of malaria in his system, leading to the belief that malaria and Köhler disease II combined led to his death. On 14 September 2012, ABC News presented a further theory about Tutankhamun's death, developed by lecturer and surgeon Dr. Hutan
Also another detail to prove my theory is on a recent discovery in 2013 by Dr.Chris Naunton after he took an autopsy on king tut’s mummified corpse he discovered that the boy had broken bones in his right foot and had shattered his right kneecap as well, as several shattered ribs and a broken pelvis. (hips) So how come this is true because for a fact king tut’s may have got injured in a chariot crash, because if he didn 't how did he break all these bones? And if it was common for Chariot races why wouldn 't a 9-year-old? Wanna do it if he had no rules he was a pharaoh he was the king of Egypt he could have done whatever he wanted!Another detail that proves he could of died in a crash is he got kicked of a horse because in egypt it was shown that riding horses was a thing so maybe the horse got out of control and sadly kicked him out and he may of opened his chest from the injury or got his arms cut..So I think this is a reason of why King tut 's could have died at such a young age. Conclusion In conclusion this is why I think king tut 's could have died at such a young age I think my three theories with evidence is well proven with good facts and good evidence it has been viewed by scientist and doctors
The door leading to King Tut’s chamber room was discovered on November 24, 1922 (Ganeri). At the time of the discovery of the tomb, science was not as advanced, so the propagation of the idea that he was murdered lasted a long time. As technology advanced, researchers took another look at the mummy. Molecular Egyptology is ushering in a whole new study of ancient Egypt and the family relationships as well as the afflictions of King Tutankhamun and his
Since Bob Brier’s investigations more research has been carried out concerning Tutankhamon’s death but no evidence for murder has been found. The hole in his skull is most likely the result of the mummification process. Another theory concerning the cause of death is a chariot crash. However, the most plausible theory is that he died due to illness. Research of Zahi Hawass, Albert Zink et al.¹ shows that Tutankhamun had several diseases, including malaria.
In the article “Dead Men talking” I related that if a person is American they have an overbite and this victim does. I gave Dr.Wei a call and asked him if he has any medical records of a patient that has an overbite, a crown on the right maxillary 2nd molar with a serial number of 599809, and removed wisdom teeth. “Well I found three people; Harper Francis, John Jacobson, and Joseph Matash!” Dr.Wei replied. Only Harper Francis and John Jacobson were on the missing people records. The next thing that I needed to find was the gender.
It is believed that the first person who inked their body did so to relieve muscle pain. Scientists believe this is why Otzi had so many tattoos on his body. Through a radiological examination of the Iceman’s bones, a strain activated and age trained degeneration can be seen in places corresponding to the locations of his tattoos. Researchers have concluded that the ink tattoos may be related to what is now known as acupuncture or acupressure. Unlike contemporary tattoos, these tattoos were not made with a needle; they were very small incisions into which crushed charcoal was placed.
Three years after Earhart and Noonan went missing in 1937, Nikumaroro was being colonized by the British when thirteen bones were discovered, on the until then uninhabited island, and were promptly sent to Figi to be examined by physician, David Hoodless. In 1940, Hoodless recorded that the bones belonged to a “stocky male”, most likely of European descent (Salmon). This conclusion did not match the description of Earhart, nor her navigator Noonan, and the case was disregarded until forensic anthropologist, Richard Jantz, reanalyzed Hoodless’s conclusion by placing the data he took through a computer program called Fordisc, which is used by anthropologists in the U.S. and around the world to estimate sex, anscestry, and stature from skeletal measurements (Neuman). This resource is far more advanced and useful than the resources that were available around the time of Earhart’s disappearance, and Jantz’s reexamination of the evidence found that David Hoodless had incorrectly determined the sex of the remains, meaning that if the bones did not belong to Amelia Earhart they had to have been from someone very similar. Jantz’s discovery took place 80 years after the ill-fated pilot vanished, which proves that the mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance is still a subject being explored and investigated.
“Ancient literature and archeological finds show the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and ancient Indian societies all fashioned artificial body parts from wood or metal. Prosthetics were either minimally functional decorations meant to hide a missing limb or functional attachments that barely resembled natural body parts” (After the accident: Amputation, 2011, p. 14) However, the real progression in prosthetics took place in the mid-late 1500’s, when a surgeon of the name Ambroise Paré introduced modern amputation procedures and new inventions for prostheses such as a peg leg that had the function to kneel, and the knee lock control. Both of which are basic techniques used in the development of prosthetics
King Tut, whose real name is Tutankhamun, was a product of inbreeding. His parents are believed to have been siblings; therefore, he suffered many inherited diseases. According to the video, which was a CT scan that scientists recreated, King Tut had buck teeth, wide hips, and a clubfoot. This information proved that he could not have died riding a chariot, because he could not stand on his own. He was buried with many walking sticks, and according to history this was a way to represent his power; however, it is now believed they were used to assist in his walking.
The tragic hero that I am describing in this essay goes by the name of Henry Jones Jr., but is more widely recognized by his nickname, Indiana Jones, which was given to him during his times of archaeological quests to retrieve ancient artifacts. Jones worked as a college professor in Marshall College, the University of Princeton, and Barnett College, where he expertised in archaeological studies. His starter movie, Raiders of The Last Ark, saw him being recruited by the United States Government to discover the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. In the film, Indy shows many courageous feats, as well as his fair share of misadventures that see him being held captive in the Nazi’s hands and the ark now out of his possession. Indiana Jones
