News
  1. King Tut's Mummified Face Revealed (MSNBC News)
      "The face of King Tut was unshrouded in public for the first time on Sunday — 85 years after the 3,000-year-old boy pharaoh's golden enshrined tomb and mummy were discovered in Luxor's famed Valley of the Kings." 11-07

Papers
  1. King Tut (Wikipedia.org)
      "Tutankhamun (alternate transcription Tutankhamen), named Tutankhaten early in his life, was Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt (1334 BC/1333 BC - 1323 BC), during the period known as the New Kingdom."

      "Tutankhamun (or "King Tut") is perhaps best known to modern westerners as the only pharaoh to have his nearly intact tomb (KV62) discovered. (The wealth of objects discovered in this young king's tomb naturally leads to speculation on what might have been contained in the plundered tombs of far more significant Pharaohs.) However, he is historically important as well." 3-05

  2. King Tut's Autopsy Reveals New Information (DailyKos.com)
      "First, the DNA study found that Akhenaten, Tut's father, married his own sister. This was not unusual for kings of Egypt. They believed it kept the family line pure, and had no idea of the genetic consequences if such interbreeding. In fact, Tut married his own sister, Ahnkesenpaaten. But the results of several lines of interbreeding had disastrous results for Tut. He was born with a severe overbite, womanish hips, and a club foot." 10-14

  3. King Tut's Real Face (MSNBC News)
      "The first facial reconstructions of King Tutankhamun based on CT scans of his mummy have produced images strikingly similar to the boy pharaoh’s ancient portraits, with one model showing a baby-faced young man with chubby cheeks and his family’s characteristic overbite." 11-07
