I wondered about that myself but I think scientists believe there was a genetic problem going on. At that time Brother and sisters married quite frequently in the royal family and some genetic stuff was being passed around.

There is a suggestion that Ahkenaten suffered from Marfan's Syndrome. It is genetic which means that Tut would have had it as well.

I know, huh. But the dailymail picked up the story from BBC and Reuters news service who got it from a press release by the scientists working on the King Tut project.

What I question is how the hell do they get the facial features for the individual. I know bone structure is key to a person's look but there is also muscle on top of the bones and fat and skin on top of that. How do they know they're correctly portraying where the muscle and fat will be on an individual.

It's imperfect.

Which Norfolk would that be? Norfolk in the UK or Norfolk, Virginia in the USA? (maybe both?)
