Trivia

Tut is believed to have died from complications following an accident that was consistent with being thrown from one chariot and being run over by another. He had serious injuries to his trunk and a compound fracture of one of his legs. MRI and CT analysis of his mummy shows the injury, which did not heal, indicating it was perimortem. DNA analysis also shows that he repeatedly suffered from the most severe type of malaria. There was coriander in his tomb, a spice used to treat fever during his time. Tut had a malformed bone in one of his feet, possibly genetic, that probably caused him to limp. He was buried with many canes that were used, as evidenced by wear. It is supposed that Tut was injured during a hunting expedition, possibly a chariot accident. Having been weakened by malaria, it is thought that he developed an infection from the broken bone and leg injury that overwhelmed him causing his death. It is possible he had internal injuries that contributed, however the hasty and poorly performed mummification process, which included a disproportunate amount of scented oils that caused decomposition. His organs, which were stored in canopic jars, were not able to provide any discernible evidence. See more »

Nice!
19 August 2015 | by zozer-54226See all my reviews

I'm visiting Egypt for the second time, next week, and this series is a real tonic! Wow! Fast paced, wonderful scenery, great sets, lovely costumes and a powerful script. Very cool indeed.

Why the Mitanni kings are black, though, defies logic ... they were from Syria. I guess the producers wanted black representation in ancient history, even though it never existed. Would black TV audiences really refuse to watch a miniseries about King Tutankhamun just because there were no black actors in it? Of course not! Grow up Hollywood!!!!

The casting is superb, Tutankhamun is a dark, embittered youth, that kicks back at his historical portrayal as a teen aged victim of Egyptian politics, shades of Frank Herbet's DUNE. Ankhesunamen is fabulously gorgeous and Ay (Ben Kingsley), is perfect in his role.
