If you'd told me 2 weeks ago I could be corresponding with leading academics I'd have said you were mad. But that's where I find myself. The consensus seems to be that my paper on the DNA of Tutankhamun's family has much merit but that reviewing it properly needs a specialist in ancient DNA. Someone has suggested a professor in Adelaide. I'll contact him and hope he's willing to take a look.

I think I'd like an academic to take it on and prepare a proper peer-reviewed paper. There's no point me trying to do it. I lack the experience to do the subject justice and don't have the credentials to get it published even if I did write it up with full academic rigour. Fortunately I've never been possessive about ideas so I wouldn't mind someone else take it on if that's the right way to proceed.

Who'd have thought.

It comes as no surprise to me that this has happened. Having seen both on your NFVOK blog and forums I have seen the interest in your article grow very fast. I have yet to come accross someone who disagrees with your approach and many use your methods as a starting point for their own work.

You deserve all the credit that comes your way.

Good Luck.
