It's all to do with the timing, thats why I say everything is in perfect timing, as it should be.
Plus the white man's quest for gold, which probably has not served makind well these past 5000 years.

Nice find, so back in the day, they ( the masses ) thought king Tut was an Old man eh ?

Good grief BM :lol: ....."wise old nut",......"old King Tut"....just (pretty poor) rhyming and allusion to Old King Cole.

NOBODY, least of all the "masses" , thought of Tut other then as a 'boy king'

You risk setting off Frater on one of his trips to support the theory that Tut died an old man :lol:

He definitely died young because his body has been examined
