UM.....DNA TRIBES did NOT actually take the DNA of King Tut! They went according to his ancestry! In REALITY KING TUT WAS A NORTH AFRICAN carrying NORTH AFRICAN DNA! Two different Forensic Experts recreated King Tut! He looked exactly like a North African NOT a Ngroid!

I really don't care what King Tut was except that it's interesting to study and a good mystery to solve.

But those examples you gave are not accurate and Lucas Martin of DNA tribes states that himself. Which leads me to believe that you do not care anything about the history and the mystery, you just want him to be black for some odd reason.

What is the difference what the true outcome is? Why is this so important to you for King Tut to be black?

Post copied from another site:

I contacted DNATribes and this is the response they gave. It appears they did not want to admit the study was flawed (out of bias) or that they used so few loci to determine origins:

Thank you for your interest in the recent Digest article. The 8 STR loci tested do not allow a fine level admixture analysis to identify percentages of ancestry from world regions or continents. However, in this case available results indicate the Amarna mummies have inherited several alleles that are most frequent in African populations, which suggests some African ancestry (not necessarily excluding other ancestral components) for these ancient individuals.

Best regards,
Lucas Martin
DNA Tribes

AND:

Thank you for following up regarding your the recent Digest issue. The presence of some African specific alleles among the Amarna mummies does not necessarily exclude that ancient Egyptian populations were descended from multiple ancestral components (possibly including regional contacts related to modern populations of Egypt).

These preliminary results only suggest that based on the 8 STR markers tested for the Amarna mummies, one of these ancestral components might have been indigenous to Africa.

Best regards,
Lucas Martin
DNA Tribes

And I contacted Mike at GenDNA. Here is what he had to say:

The testing of only 8 Y-DNA markers would only give you a bare minimum amount of information about the ancestral origin of the direct paternal line. It may not even be enough to definitively place the paternal line in a specific major haplogroup. And, as far as being used for matching with others and finding genealogical connections, 8 markers is inadequate and although a minimum of 25 markers can be used, 37 markers or more are really needed to find meaningful matches. I would recommend the 37-marker test at [...].

So the testing of 8 loci is, as we already know, is extremely unreliable - inadequate - for placement of ancestry. One would expect a different outcome if more markers would have been tested. In fact, I would expect the finding to be more aligned with DNATribes previous article:

The suggestion from DNATribes is unreliable. It goes against everything we know based on the genetic, linguistic, anthropologic and historical information that has been obtained for this NE African population.

On Africans:

Genotype/Phenotype Association Studies

For many of the individuals for which we have obtained DNA, we also collected phenotype data for traits likely to play a role in adaptation, some of which demonstrate a complex pattern of inheritance and are likely influenced by multiple loci and environmental factors. In addition to case/control analyses of variation at candidate genes, we are using whole-genome association studies to identify novel genes that are associated with these traits. Together with collaborators, we are also developing methods for mapping complex traits (including disease) in highly structured African populations.

--Sarah Tishkoff, Ph.D

The Evolution of Human Genetic and Phenotypic Variation in Africa
Africa is the birthplace of modern humans, and is the source of the geographic expansion of ancestral populations into other regions of the world.

Indigenous Africans are characterized by high levels of genetic diversity within and between populations. The pattern of genetic variation in these populations has been shaped by demographic events occurring over the last 200,000 years.

The dramatic variation in climate, diet, and exposure to infectious disease across the continent has also resulted in novel genetic and phenotypic adaptations in extant Africans.

This review summarizes some recent advances in our understanding of the demographic history and selective pressures that have influenced levels and patterns of diversity in African populations.

Africa not only has the highest levels of human genetic variation in the world but also contains a considerable amount of linguistic, environmental and cultural diversity. For example, more than 2,000 distinct ethno-linguistic groups, representing nearly a third of the world’s languages, currently exist in Africa

The timing and duration of some of these demographic events were often correlated with known major environmental changes and/or cultural developments in Africa [6].

A number of novel genetic and phenotypic adaptations have also evolved in Africans in response to dramatic variation in environment, diet, and exposure to infectious disease across the continent.

In some cases, these adaptations have occurred in the last several thousand years, exemplifying the ongoing evolution of human populations.

Thus, present-day patterns of variation in African genomes are a product of both demographic and selective events.

SCIENCE Reveals the RACE of Egyptian Sphinx with PROOF!

ancient Egyptian hair was black hair
https://www.youtube.com/watch...
Trichology is the scientific analysis of hair. An instrument called a 'trichometer' is used to measure the cross-section of the hair shaft. From this you can get measurements for the minimum and maximum diameter of hair which is very specific to the races of mankind. The minimum measurement is then divided by the maximum and then multiplied by a hundred. This produces an index survey of the scientific literature.
In the early 1970's the Czech anthropologist, Eugen Strouhal examined pre-dynastic European skulls at Cambridge University. He sent some samples of the hair to the Institute of Anthropology at Charles University, Prague to be analysed. The hair samples were describes as varying in texture from 'wavy' to 'curly' and in colour from 'light brown' to 'black'. Strouhal summarised the results of the analysis:
'The outline of the cross-sections of the hairs was flattened, with indices ranging from 35-65. These peculiarities also show the Neg roid inference among the Badarians [pre-dynasic Egyptians]. The term,'Neg roid influence' suggests intermixture but as the table suggests, this hair is more 'Neg roid' than the San and the Zulu samples, currently the most Neg roid hair in existence!
In another study, hair samples from the 18-25th dynasty individuals produced an average index of 51 as fa back as 1877, Dr Pruner-Bey analysed six different Egyptian hair samples. Their average index of 64.4 was similar to the Tasmanians who lie at the periphery of the African-haired populations.
A team of Italian anthropologists published their research in the Journal of Human Evolution in 1972 and 1980. They measured two samples consisting of 26 individuals from the pre-dynastic, 12the dynasty and 18th dynasty mummies. They produced a mean index of 66.50. The overall average of all four sets of ancient Egyptian hair samples was 60.02 - African.

http://books.google.nl/books...

-Women in ancient Egypt
the early 20th century much was made over the ancestry of Hetepheres II. A relief from the tomb of her daughter, Meresankh III, depicts the queen with blonde hair.
However, closer inspection reveals that she was not a natural blonde, but rather the owner of a unique and, we can speculate, much coveted blonde wig.
"The walls of this interior room are decorated
with hunting and fishing scenes, including a
charming image of Meresankh and her mother,
Hetepheres II picking lotus flowers from the
river.. The pillars have images of Meresankh
wearing a blond wig."

Lacovara. 2004. The pyramids and the SPhinx: tombs and temples of GIza
http://www.ancient-egypt.co.uk/boston/statues...
Limestone statue of Hetep-Heres II (mother) and Meres-Ankh III (daughter) from their tomb G 7530-7540 at Giza, dating to the 4th Dynasty. Paired statues of mother and daughters are common (but less so that husband and wife pairs). Queen Hetep-Heres was a daughter of King Khufu and was married to Prince Kawab. Meres-Ankh is known to have died before her mother and was married to King Khafra (builder of the second great pyramid at Giza) and the statue was a gift from her mother.

As Brothwell and Spearman (‘63) point out, reddish-brown ancient hair is usually the result of partial oxidation of the melanin pigment. This color was seen in a large proportion of the Semna sample, and also noted by Titlbachova and Titlbach (‘77) on Egyptian material, where it also may have resulted from the mummification process. However, the large number of blond hairs that are not associated with the cuticular damage that bleaching produces, probably points to a significantly lighter-haired population than is now present in the Nubian region. Brothwell and Spearman (’63) noted genuinely blond ancient Egyptian samples using reflectance spectrophotometry. Blondism, especially in young children, is common in many darkhaired populations (e.g., Australian, Melanesian), and is still found in some Nubian villages (J. Zabkar, personal communication).

Only one sample (M197) showed cuticular damage and irregularities definitely consistent with bleaching, although bleaching could not be ruled out in some of the blond samples.

You are not just hilarious, but even more so..."sub" Africa had written script before colonial times.

Now, the irony is that Europe was illiterate and could not read nor write, when many West Africans could read and write during the same period. If it wasent for the enslavement by the Romans many parts like West and North Europe still would have been the same as before.

Here are some demonstrations:

The History of Scripts

The scripts used by the Romans were used throughout the Empire and formed the basis for all later developments. After the fall of the Empire, surviving and reviving centres of literacy developed a diversity of scripts based on the Roman model. The script known as Caroline minuscule was developed in the revival of literacy and Classical culture which occurred under the Emperor Charlemagne. This became a standard across much of literate Europe by the 10th century. A new wave of diversification began in northern France and the Low Countries in the 11th century, resulting in the development of the large and diverse family of scripts known as Gothic. In the Renaissance period in Italy, a return to aspects of Classical culture included the revival of what were perceived as Classical scripts. This era represented the end of manuscript book production to any significant degree, although a range of stylised hands for document production remained in use.

http://medievalwriting.50megs.com/scripts/his...

Quote:
The 18th century: the language builders and the artificial written language

Since the 17th century a Dutch standard language had been under construction. It was based on the dialect of Holland with the addition of southern elements. It is important to realize that it was a written language, and most of all, no language of the 'common' people. It was a language of the educated, cultivated upper class. This written language had a very artificial nature because of long, complex sentences and typical vocabulary. It was miles away from the spoken language, which, at that point, had not been given much attention.
