Tutankhamun's parents had been siblings.


This was news?
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

It is if it will help sell a book.
Remember we have a whole new generation waiting for old news to be re-cycled as
"Shocking Revelations From the Past"
And if can be backed up by a modern and little understood technology, like DNA, so much the better.

The anonymous KV55 mummy, the team said, was actually Tutankhamun's father, the revolutionary Akhenaten,


That's news to me. It's not a big surprise. They had speculated as much from the beginning. They have been looking for Akhenaten for years.

Why is it not a surprise that you tediously wise ones missed the entire point that WAS new ? That just like DNA from the brain tissue found in Florida burials from ca. 9000 years ago, The Egyptian riyal family's DNA MAY NOT be tested. Because it would shed definitive light on where people came from, torpedoing the mountains of politically correct nonsense that purports to pass for "human origins."

So, let's get this straight....

After amplifying DNA from every mummy they tested, they had constructed a five-generation family tree. The anonymous KV55 mummy, the team said, was actually Tutankhamun's father, the revolutionary Akhenaten, while the foetuses were most likely his daughters.


you're upset that they aren't doing DNA testing after they just explained how much DNA testing they did?

Hell, Ramesses II had red hair...he must have been a Neanderthal... of course he was in the 19th Dynasty not the 18th.

Well written article.
It well shows the tightrope an Egyptologist has to walk in this day and age.
