King Tutankhamun is in the news these days.
Last week the results of two years of DNA testing were announced. They reported on all the physical disabilities the young King had, and the causes of his death. The traveling exhibition showing artifacts from his tomb is in San Francisco right now, so it has gotten an especially large amount of publicity here in Northern California.
Given that attention, I thought I’d create another “The Best…” list.
Here are my choices for The Best Online Resources To Learn About King Tut (and are accessible to English Language Learners):
