King Tut's Deformed Skull
Just as an added note and because the fact is not generally known, the head of pharaoh Tut Ankh Amen is deformed in the same style as is shown for his sisters in sculpture and this form of the head is the same as the basal-Neolithic skulls found at Jericho and elsewhere in theNear-East: Egerton Sykes had speculated that Ikhanaten had been attempting to return to the original Aton religion of Atlantis and instituted a return to the original form of artificial cranial deformation that derived from the Atlanteans as part of it. That is a speculation without any documentation to back it up and it would imply that there must be some pretty specific documentaion about Atlantis in Egypt at least as late as the New Kingdom. On the other hand, it would seem like a pretty tall coincidence otherwise.
