King Tut's Mummified Erect Penis May Point to Ancient Religious Struggle

King Tut's Mummified Erect Penis May Point to Ancient Religious Struggle | Ancient Egypt and Nubia | Scoop.it
Possibly the first-known mummified erect penis, and other burial anomalies, were not accidents during embalming, but rather deliberate attempts to make the king appear as Osiris, the god of the underworld, in as literal a way as possible.

Amanda Duvall's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:19 PM

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.
