Pharoah Tutankhamen

DNA Evidence 

DNA samples of Egyptian Pharoah Tutankhamen and family were recently analysed by DNATribes, a company that traces people’s ancestry to certain global populations.

They found that the closest living relatives of the mummies are sub-Saharan Africans, particularly those from Southern Africa and the Great Lakes region.

Several Greek historians further said that ancient Egyptians were black-skinned and had woolly hair. Other scholars pointed out that ancient Egyptians had dark or dark-skinned complexions.
