From the title, you are probably aware that there is going to be some snark ahead. Beware of snark. Just so you're warned...

Because that's not how academia works. Peer review functions as a way to get solid results or "the truth" because people jump on new findings like this like vultures on roadkill and pick it ...

You know, I think that Malaria is not the plague we're talking about here. I have not read the sources of this here, and even Aidan Dodgeson in Amarna Sunset admits that the only evidence we have that ...

I mentioned this earlier, but is it possible that the genetic bone condition could have thrown off the age estimate for the KV55 body? Perhaps this is why they needed a CT scan...to see the developmen ...

Some points. I doubt kv55 is tuthmose and for me the evidence is that he's too old (mid 20s). And the defacing of the coffin isn't logical for tuthmose.

Oh and also, it seems like I'm proposing Sitamun as Nefertiti. Sorry. My mind got ahead of my typing fingers there. I'm not. I'm saying she's probably not Nefertiti because Nefertiti was Nefertiti bef ...

In Amarna Letter's 4, there's an article entitled Sitamun: Royal Heiress. To tell the truth, I couldn't read the article all the way through because the entire theory the author was constructing was b ...

You know, I wish someone would take this theory out back and put it out of its misery already. Bob Brier trotted this out, perhaps in conjunction with Alwyn Burridge. (She's mainly a Marfan's advocat ...

I just got this book for Christmas and I'm pretty excited about it. The pictures are magnificent. However, I wish it had gone tomb by tomb instead of a general overview of the nobles in general. I al ...
