What Killed Tutankhamen?

One of the world’s great mysteries may yet be solved.

Egypt plans to X-ray the mummy of Tutankhamen to find out what killed the king who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago and died while only a teenager.

 

Archaeologists will move Tutankhamen’s body from its tomb, which was discovered packed with treasure in 1922, to Cairo for tests which should resolve the mystery over whether he died naturally or was murdered.

 

“We will know about any diseases he had, any kind of injuries and his real age,” Egyptian antiquities chief Zahi Hawass told Reuters. “We will know the answer to whether he died normally or was he killed.”

Sounds like a good idea, but why don’t they just start with someone who died more recently?
