Ms. Wall's Example Response:
Question 3
I was surprised when I learned that King Tut actually died from Malaria.  His death makes me wonder how many other Egyptians died from the Malaria, and also if Malaria was more common during the "high" Nile, when the river embankments overflowed with water.  I wonder if the Egyptians had an preventative measures to stop the spread of illness or if they offered sacrifices to the gods as a way to appease angry spirits that might be responsible.  It also made me think about King Tut and how illnesses may or may not have been treated during this time.  I wonder if he was isolated from others during his illness and if they practiced any type of medicine on him.
