PostForum: Evidence from Amarna   Posted: Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:11 pm   Subject: Nicholas Reeves lecture "Beyond the Mask of Tutankhamon
I had read a long time ago that the face and headdress of the funerary mask may not be a match (you can actually see slightly untidy join-work between the face and headdress in close ups), suggesting ...

PostForum: Evidence from Amarna   Posted: Thu Jun 03, 2010 10:32 pm   Subject: KV 55 = Smenkhare? Akhenaten?
What annoys me is the joining of two unrelated facts.

1) KV55 is Tuts father

2) Akhenaten is a poss candidate for Tuts father.

3) KV55 is Akhenaten.

I agree that it's an unscientific ...

I think the chances of the tasherit princesses being daughters of Tutankhamen is very remote. Precisely because they have 'aten' name endings.

His children could not have been born till well after ...

PostForum: Evidence from Amarna   Posted: Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:32 pm   Subject: food for thought
That's exactly how I read it too.

Tutankhamen is the son of a daughter of Tiye and A3.

And his father (KV55) is also the brother of his wife.

So, really no names can be filled in yet, because ...

I'm getting really confused by all this.

Surely we should be referring to the familial relationships by reference to the mummy IDs (eg KV62 is the son of KV55) unless we have an unequivocal identif ...

Regarding the Berlin 'Walk in the Garden' stela, here's the explanation proffered by Aldred.

The couple are shown in Armana style - hence Akhenaten + Nefertiti, Smenkhkare + Meritaten, or Tut + Ank ...

In his own memoirs, Borchard tells of purposely leaving the bust uncleaned, and covering it with a mixture of mud and plaster, to make Egyptian officials think it was "nothing special", and ...

The two things that make this a bit more interesting than the standard loony theories are:-

1/ That the author claims an admission from someone involved with the excavation that the item was a fake ...

It was carefully covered with mud, to make it more unattractive, in order for it to be given to the expedition.


That is a supposition that has been made to try to explain how the bust was overl ...

Someone (I forget the persons name) has written a book outlining the theory that the bust is a fake.

The claim is that the bust was made in 1912 with the aim of experimenting with the types of pigm ...

I think the figure on the left, given the youthful 'puppy fat' face is more likely to be Tutankhamen.

It's the outer coffin (the wood one covered in gold leaf) that is in the tomb.

The middle coffin (gold leaf and inlays), inner coffin (solid gold and inlays) and funary mask (solid gold and inlays) ...
