This slightly built woman named Takabuti has yielded an H4a1 result at around 90% certainty.
Unlikely most Egyptian women, her reddish-auburn hair was not shaved during the preparations, instead it was styled and curled. I'll assume this is due to the religious significance of red hair in ancient Egypt and the broader Near East. (things like dwarfism, gigantism, blue eyes, twins seemed to attract bug-eyed people holding snakes)
You will remember that "Ginger" from outside Heliopolis in a pre-dynastic setting was also a redhead. So the question you may have, and I have had for a long time, is when exactly did these lineages and phenotypes enter Southern Egypt. It may be a mistake to believe that this and other atypical lineages were only recently introduced in Bronze Age.
While Tutakhamen's paternal lineage is more plausibly due to (*update *what the hell was I thinking?) potential mercenary lineage in the army, that may not necessarily be the case. It's quite possible, as I've suspected since the beginning of this blog, that the mid-4th millennium circum-Pontic region was spinning immigrants out in all directions, including the North Africa and the entire Middle East. This is not to say that these were PIE, most certainly not, probably Upper Mesopotamians here. (apparently you can not utter these words in a university without getting kicked in the balls and beaten like a brand new chimpanzee)
This reminds me of the original Rostaluu paper concerning the origin of H mtdna sequences. Probably worth a review. We're not talking about a lot of people in relation to the population density
*I teased this back some time ago. I think the Tutankhamun paternal lineage probably extends through the entire 18th dynasty at least past Ahmose I. The question I want to know is how far back it went into the 17th.
