King Tutankhamun, the young pharaoh that died at the age of 19 in 1324 B.C., suffered from many disorders, but the most likely cause of his death was a severe case of malaria and a degenerative bone disease, according to researchers. Several mummies that were part of the study showed DNA evidence of malaria, but it was King Tut that caught the attention of scientists. To their knowledge this was "the oldest genetic proof of malaria in precisely dated mummies." The advancement in...

A Yale University physician reported his analysis Friday of images of Akhenaten. Akhenaten (ah-keh-NAH-ten), best known for introducing a ground-breaking form of monotheism to ancient Egypt, ruled in the mid-1300s B.C., and was married to Nefertiti. While not the most manly pharaoh, in fact his form was rather feminine, Akhenaten nevertheless fathered at least six children.

Armana is the only ancient city in...
