As a result of subcutaneous packing, the mummy of King Seti I (1294-1279 BC) has “the most life-like and attractive face of the many Egyptian mummies, royal and commoner, that have survived down to present time,” according to the authors.
Possibly as a result of parental incest, King Tut suffered bone deformities in his second toe on his left foot. Roughly 400 miles from the Great Pyramids, ancient pharaohs of the New Kingdom lay at rest in the Valley of Kings. Nineteenth-century explorers discovered two mummies in chamber KV21, which are now located in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Nefertiti was, after all, Ankhesenamun’s mother, so it makes sense that the two might have been buried together. Researchers first x-rayed Tut in 1968, but the two-dimensional images from traditional X-rays didn’t provide enough detail to confirm what physical ailments brought him suffering and early death. Hawass’ team performed a CT scan on King Tut’s remains in 2005, making him the first royal mummy to receive the treatment. Saleem explains that embalmers extracted Tut’s brain through his nose pour hot plant resin into his skull.
The scans also reveal a previously unknown congenital deformity of Tut’s left foot that forced him to walk with a cane. Complex matter is bound together by deep forces - and in the study of this binding lies the secret of Arc Light.


Beneath the world of light and matter lies the vacuum, and the vast dark secrets that it contains. Nondescript chambers built into the valley’s dusty hills hold royal remains, buried between 1550 and 1070 BC. In particular, a team of radiologists and geneticists hopes to prove that an unidentified mummy known as KV21b is the long-sought Queen Nefertiti—King Tut’s stepmother. Using new techniques, the so-called Egyptian Mummy Project proved that one of them is the mother of Tut’s two stillborn daughters—likely Ankhesenamun, who was Tut’s only wife.
The researchers need more time to analyze the data before they can be sure—they plan to locate other relatives of Nefertiti and see if the DNA matches. After extensive analysis of more than 1,700 images, Saleem and other experts determined that Tut was around 19 years old when he died.
For years, scholars believed a head trauma killed him, based on a small bone fragment found in his skull. This information jibes with the 130 walking sticks discovered in Tut’s tomb, and the many drawings of the young king that depict him sitting down—even while, say, hunting. The crypts were designed to deter robbers, and for the most part, they worked—which makes it difficult for today’s archaeologists to find them and identify their inhabitants. Modern analysis, from CT scanning to DNA testing, is offering new clues into the history of this royal family.


They also distinguished the physical damage caused by handlers after Tut’s death from ailments he suffered from during his lifetime. But if this bone fragment had been present at the time of mummification, the embalming fluid would have adhered to it, the authors explain. The fact that Tut’s parents (the Younger Lady and Akhenaten) were siblings, as the authors discovered, could explain this defect. And after 10 years of work, the researchers Zahi Hawass and Sahar Saleem are presenting their findings in the book Scanning the Pharaohs: CT Imaging of the New Kingdom Royal Mummies. In reviewing scans of the rest of the body, Saleem came up with a new theory: Tut probably died from a bad knee fracture instead.
On top of that, the presence of a malaria-causing pathogen indicates the disease may have weakened his immune system.
