The article is about a baby boy mummy. The boy was about two years old. The people studying him are wondering how he died. They took X-rays and found a hole on the top of his skull. It gives them a clue what happened to him. They also found green under his left eye and hands. They wonder what it is. His clothes are faded mostly ever where and his insides are missing. I have been looking at the picture of him and his eyes are closed. He aslo is lying flat down as if he was sleeping when he died.

Via Shonda Brock
Amanda Duvall's insight:

A mission in the Nile Delta town of Tel-Basra was a life-sized statue of the 19th Dynasty King Ramses 2. The life-sized statue was accidently found during a routine excavation. It was discovered in The Great Temple areas. The temple is of the cat goddess, Bastetin Sharqiya's Tel-Basta. The newly-discovered statue is King Ramses 2 standing between the goddess of Hathor and the god Petah. On the statue's back are hieroglyphics text and cartilage of the King 's engrave. This important discovery sheds light on the history of Tel-Basta. Handel-Maqsoud suggest that  Tel-Basta was once home to a new kingdom temple dedicated to King Ramses 2.

''Bingo,'' the Australian archaeologist said as he picked up and examined an ancient sandstone block.

Under the left arm a polished pandate was found. Later a stronger landslip took place and remainings of the last bodies placed over.

Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved? Maybe Not

Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved? Maybe Not | The unfound of the ancient | Scoop.it
King Tut's chariot crashed and later his mummy burned, says an upcoming TV show.

Via Shonda Brock
Amanda Duvall's insight:

King Tutankhamun was just a teen when he died. He was well fed and fiercely protected. His death meant the beginning of the end for  ancient Egypt's 18th dynasty. A report from a British team did an x-Ray of Tut in 1968. It reveals a missing breastbone and the ribs line up along the backbone, probably all smashed ans removed by the embalmers. They also revealed extreme damage to the rib cage and and a broken leg in 2005. He clearly suffered some kind of massive trauma. One cause of death at the time from the CT scan was a chariot crash. The King might have been riding during a hunt or a battle. They also think King Tut was in the wrong place at the wrong time  and was hunting then charged by hippopotamus. What death caused this highly protected king to die.
