An international team of researchers studying King Tutankhamun are reporting some surprising new discoveries about the ancient boy king.

The scientists say that a ‘virtual autopsy’ of Tut — essentially a close analysis of a life-size image of the king made from more than 2,000 CT scans of his mummified remains — shows that he had buck teeth and a club foot as well as a girlish figure.

The findings, featured in a new BBC One documentary entitled “Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered,” suggest a new explanation for King Tut’s mysterious death.

Jewelry From Space? Ancient Egyptian Beads Were Made From Meteorites, Scientists Say

Ancient Egyptian beads found in a 5,000-year-old tomb were made from iron meteorites that fell to Earth from space, according to a new study. The beads, which are the oldest known iron artifacts in the world, were crafted roughly 2,000 years before Egypt’s Iron Age.

In 1911, nine tube-shaped beads were excavated from an ancient cemetery near the village of el-Gerzeh, which is located south of Cairo, said study lead author Thilo Rehren, a professor at UCL Qatar, a Western Asian outpost of the University College London’s Institute of Archaeology. The tomb dates back to approximately 3200 B.C., the researchers said.

Inside the tomb, which belonged to a teenage boy, the iron beads were strung together into a necklace alongside other exotic materials, including gold and gemstones. Early tests of the beads’ composition revealed curiously high concentrations of nickel, a telltale signature of iron meteorites. 

“Even 100 years ago, [the beads] attracted attention as being something strange,” Rehren told LiveScience.

Merneptah’s Sarcophagus: Biggest Ancient Egyptian Burial Box Identified Near ‘Valley Of The Kings’ (PHOTOS)

The largest ancient Egyptian sarcophagus has been identified in a tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, say archaeologists who are re-assembling the giant box that was reduced to fragments more than 3,000 years ago.

Made of red granite, the royal sarcophagus was built for Merneptah, an Egyptian pharaoh who lived more than 3,200 years ago. A warrior king, he defeated the Libyans and a group called the “Sea Peoples” in a great battle.

Largest Sarcophagus

The mummy of Merneptah was encased in a series of four sarcophagi,
set one within the other. After his tomb was robbed, more than 3,000
years ago, he was reburied elsewhere and his two outer sarcophagi
boxes were broken up.
