    ......and how our genome carry our true identity. So im a follower/ subscriber to The National Geographic journal and website. And they recently came upon a discovery in regards to the boy King Tut and his family tree. The discovery left me baffled and amazed at how far technology has traveled to the point that DNA can now be pulled from long dead tissue. Anyways if your into this stuff read the article and leave your response. I wont spoil the end for you....so read.

    Too long to read in one sitting, but very interesting. Some I already knew through documentaries, but it pieces a lot of that together so far. I'll finish reading it later.

    Incest is very common in ancient times.... was seen as a way to keep pure blood pure for ages
