Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved?

Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved? | Neolithic Period | Scoop.it

The mystery of King Tut’s death might finally be solved, according to one scientist who argues that the secret to the young Pharaohs demise is hidden in plain sight.

 

Dr. Hutan Ashrafian, a lecturer and surgeon at the Imperial College London, says the key to the mystery lies in the art of the time, which depicted King Tut with highly feminine features, including enlarged breasts.

 

The enlarged breasts, he argues, are indicative of a condition known as gynecomastia, which, when added to a host of historical and familial evidence, indicates that Tutankhamun might have suffered and eventually died from temporal lobe epilepsy.

Spot Where Julius Caesar Was Stabbed Discovered

Spot Where Julius Caesar Was Stabbed Discovered | Neolithic Period | Scoop.it

Archaeologists believe they have found the first physical evidence of the spot where Julius Caesar died, according to a new Spanish National Research Council report.

 

Caesar, the head of the Roman Republic, was stabbed to death by a group of rival Roman senators on March 14, 44 B.C, the Ides of March. The assassination is well-covered in classical texts, but until now, researchers had no archaeological evidence of the place where it happened. . . .
