New Research Suggests Tutankhamun Died From Genetic Weakness Caused By Family Inbreeding  http://bit.ly/1rbAaUE

In November last year, scientists announced that they had finally solved the mystery of King Tutankhamun’s death after 3,300 years.

 The boy king, they claimed, died after being struck by a speeding chariot. However, a new ‘virtual autopsy’ of the world-famous pharaoh has revealed that serious genetic physical impairments would have made riding a chariot impossible. According to a report in The Independent, the results instead suggest that Tutankhamun succumbed to genetic impairments that were caused by the fact that his parents were brother and sister. 

Tutankhamun was the 11th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, a period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom, which was Egypt’s most prosperous time and marked the peak of its power. The king, who began his reign at the tender age of ten, became one of the most famous pharaoh’s of Egypt following the 1922 discovery of his opulent tomb by Howard Carter, along with his body and spectacular golden mask, and the tales of the supposed curse placed upon his tomb.  

In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that he was the son of Akhenaten and Akhenaten's sister and wife. Marriage within family was not uncommon in ancient Egypt and was practiced among royalty as a means of perpetuating the royal lineage. The pharaohs believed they were descended from the gods and incest was seen as acceptable so as to retain the sacred bloodline.

However, what they were unaware of the time was the severe consequences of family inbreeding. The fact that Tutankhamun’s parents had been brother and sister, resulted in numerous genetic conditions that the boy king suffered, including a cleft palate, a club foot, feminine hips, and a severe overbite.

Highclere Castle England

History of Highclere Castle
Early years

An Iron Age Hill Fort dominates the landscapes at Highclere and an early Anglo-Saxon charter suggests people have lived here for some 1300 years. A few maps and outlines remain from that time but records are better kept from Georgian times.


Georgian and Victorian Times

Major rebuilding works were carried out in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by the Carnarvon family and the old brick and freestone house was converted to a classical Georgian mansion within a pastoral setting. The major transformation, however, was just about to happen.
In 1838, the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon brought in Sir Charles Barry to transform his home into a grand mansion which would impress the world.
It was a time of energy and change. The young Queen Victoria had just come to the throne, and the whole decade witnessed innovation in politics and cultural life.
The new “Highclere Castle” dominated its surroundings in a most dramatic way. No wonder Benjamin Disraeli's first words on seeing Highclere were "How scenical! How scenical!".
The structural work on the interior of the Castle was finally completed in 1878. Once built, the Castle became a centre of political life during the late Victorian era.

The 20th Century

In many ways Highclere Castle epitomised the confidence and glamour of the Edwardian period in the first few years of the twentieth century. Visitor books record the house parties full of politicians, technological innovators, Egyptologists, aviators and soldiers.
During the First World War, Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnarvon, transformed the Castle into a hospital, and patients began to arrive from Flanders in September 1914. She became an adept nurse and a skilled healer and hundreds of letters from patients and their families bear testament to her untiring work and spirit of generosity. 
The Castle returned to a private home and in 1922 the 5th Earl of Carnarvon and Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, the first global world media event.
Following the death of the 5th Earl, his son, who then became the 6th Earl, returned to Highclere where he lived until 1986. During the Second World War, the Castle briefly became a home for evacuee children from north London.
The current (8th) Earl and Countess of Carnarvon live partly in the Castle and partly nearby but remain closely involved in the Castle's day to day life and future.

Done Too Soon #3

In November 1922 archaeologist Howard Carter, while digging in the Valley of Kings, uncovered one of the most unusual ancient Egyptian tombs - an intact tomb. Most of the tombs of ancient Egypt had been ransacked for the gold and other treasures. Even the mummies themselves were often missing having been ground up for the perceived magical powers that the powder of a mummy. This tomb was that of a little known pharaoh named Tutankhamun - King Tut.

Little is actually known about Tut, certainly nothing on the order of other famous pharaohs. Much of what is known is controversial. There is speculation, rumors and even curses surrounding the boy king. In ancient times, history was not recorded as it is today; it was history, philosophy and propaganda. 

Biblical historians have dated the story of Moses and the Exodus to have occurred sometime between 1800 B.C.E and 1400 B.C.E. Sometime between 1400 and 1350 B.C.E, Pharaoh Amenhotep IV declared the polytheistic Egyptian to be banned. Under his rule, a monotheistic religion was introduced with Aten (the sun god) as the sole acceptable god of Egypt. Amenhotep IV ordered the mention of other gods to be removed and he changed his name to Akhenaten. This change from polytheism to monotheism had a radical effect on Egypt altering the power structure as well as the economy. Whether the Exodus episode had been the impetus for this change or whether it was simply coincidence is not known.

Akhenaten was the father of Tutankhaten (Living image of Aten) who was born circa 1341 B.C.E. When Tutankhaten was 9 years old (1332 B.C.E.) his father died and he became pharaoh (king). At the same time as he ascended the throne, he married his half sister. Being so young, Tutankhaten had two significant advisors Ay and Horemheb. Tutankhaten immediately changed his name to Tutankhamun (Living image of Amun) and returned the traditional, polytheistic religion of Egypt with Amun as the chief god. In addition to his attempt to restore the ‘old ways’, Tutankhamun attempted to diplomatically improve relations with neighboring countries. 

In 1323 B.C.E. Tutankhamun died; he was 18 years old. The death was certainly unexpected as there was no tomb prepared for his mummy and he was buried in a nobleman’s tomb in the Valley of Kings.

When Carter discovered the tomb the news went around the world. This was the first intact tomb of any Egyptian pharaoh ever uncovered. The tomb proved to be a treasure of information for Egyptologists. Based on some of the artifacts discovered, Tutankhamun enjoyed board games and probably limped as there were several canes found in the tomb. For all of the information the tomb provided it raised certain questions, in particular, was King Tut murdered?

When examining the skull of the intact mummy, they discovered a crack at the base of the skull. There were two prominent theories as to who had killed the young king. The first was Ay, one of his chief advisers. It is assumed that as Tutankhamun grew older he began making more of his own decisions, holding greater power at the expense of his advisers. What gave credence to this theory is that Ay married Tut’s widow and succeeded Tut to the throne. 

The second theory involves the same reasoning but applies to Horemheb the king’s deputy. Horemheb succeeded Ay as pharaoh. 

Egyptologists conducted forensic tests and have concluded that Tut was not murdered. They found that the crack in the skull occurred postmortem. They discovered that Tut had suffered significant damage to the left side of his body including shattered ribs, fractured leg and broken pelvis. Computer simulations suggest that he was probably run over by a chariot. The damage to the rib cage may have been sufficient to crush his heart.

Egyptologists conducted forensic tests and have concluded that Tut was not murdered. They found that the crack in the skull occurred postmortem. They discovered that Tut had suffered significant damage to the left side of his body including shattered ribs, fractured leg and broken pelvis. Computer simulations suggest that he was probably run over by a chariot. The damage to the rib cage may have been sufficient to crush his heart.

Done Too Soon #3

In November 1922 archaeologist Howard Carter, while digging in the Valley of Kings, uncovered one of the most unusual ancient Egyptian tombs - an intact tomb. Most of the tombs of ancient Egypt had been ransacked for the gold and other treasures. Even the mummies themselves were often missing having been ground up for the perceived magical powers that the powder of a mummy. This tomb was that of a little known pharaoh named Tutankhamun - King Tut.

Little is actually known about Tut, certainly nothing on the order of other famous pharaohs. Much of what is known is controversial. There is speculation, rumors and even curses surrounding the boy king. In ancient times, history was not recorded as it is today; it was history, philosophy and propaganda. 

Biblical historians have dated the story of Moses and the Exodus to have occurred sometime between 1800 B.C.E and 1400 B.C.E. Sometime between 1400 and 1350 B.C.E, Pharaoh Amenhotep IV declared the polytheistic Egyptian to be banned. Under his rule, a monotheistic religion was introduced with Aten (the sun god) as the sole acceptable god of Egypt. Amenhotep IV ordered the mention of other gods to be removed and he changed his name to Akhenaten. This change from polytheism to monotheism had a radical effect on Egypt altering the power structure as well as the economy. Whether the Exodus episode had been the impetus for this change or whether it was simply coincidence is not known.

Akhenaten was the father of Tutankhaten (Living image of Aten) who was born circa 1341 B.C.E. When Tutankhaten was 9 years old (1332 B.C.E.) his father died and he became pharaoh (king). At the same time as he ascended the throne, he married his half sister. Being so young, Tutankhaten had two significant advisors Ay and Horemheb. Tutankhaten immediately changed his name to Tutankhamun (Living image of Amun) and returned the traditional, polytheistic religion of Egypt with Amun as the chief god. In addition to his attempt to restore the ‘old ways’, Tutankhamun attempted to diplomatically improve relations with neighboring countries. 

In 1323 B.C.E. Tutankhamun died; he was 18 years old. The death was certainly unexpected as there was no tomb prepared for his mummy and he was buried in a nobleman’s tomb in the Valley of Kings.

When Carter discovered the tomb the news went around the world. This was the first intact tomb of any Egyptian pharaoh ever uncovered. The tomb proved to be a treasure of information for Egyptologists. Based on some of the artifacts discovered, Tutankhamun enjoyed board games and probably limped as there were several canes found in the tomb. For all of the information the tomb provided it raised certain questions, in particular, was King Tut murdered?

When examining the skull of the intact mummy, they discovered a crack at the base of the skull. There were two prominent theories as to who had killed the young king. The first was Ay, one of his chief advisers. It is assumed that as Tutankhamun grew older he began making more of his own decisions, holding greater power at the expense of his advisers. What gave credence to this theory is that Ay married Tut’s widow and succeeded Tut to the throne. 

The second theory involves the same reasoning but applies to Horemheb the king’s deputy. Horemheb succeeded Ay as pharaoh.
