The Inventory Stela
The Discovery of the Stela In 1858, Auguste Mariette uncovered a small stela during excavations around the Sphinx, located within the Isis temple near what is now called Pyramid G1. This stela, inscribed with the name of Cheops, immediately aroused great interest among scholars. Initially believed to date back to the Fourth Dynasty, it soon became apparent for stylistic reasons and philological observations that it could not belong to the historical period of Cheops. Stylistically, even an untrained eye can note that documents from the Fourth Dynasty appeared quite different. From a philological perspective, consider the hieroglyphs “𓊽𓊽...

The alien and enigmatic face of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV-Akhenaten shows feminine features and superimpo
History is not an exact science, as we know: based on fragmentary documents and often contradictory findings, it leaves scholars with a discretion that has very little scientific grounding, as it can be conditioned by ideologies and preconceptions. Among all the Egyptian pharaohs, there is one figure who more than any other has given rise to countless prejudices. The story of Akhenaten, originally called Amenhotep or Amenophis IV, who lived in the second half of the 14 th century BCE, epitomizes the difficulties in understanding the real course of events. In the absence of conclusive evidence, theories that are false and erroneous are dev...

Discovered 'City of the Dead' with over 300 Tombs
Archaeologists have spent five years excavating a site once located on a hill near the modern Mausoleum of Aga Khan III. More recently, an international team of researchers discovered 36 new tombs at the site that they believe were used for about 900 years, from the 6 th century BC to the 9 th century AD; each tomb contained the remains of 30-40 people. According to Ayman Ashmawy, head of the Egyptian Antiquities Sector at the Supreme Council of Antiquities, 30-40% of the remains belonged to infants and adolescents, many of whom died from infectious diseases and other potentially lethal disorders, including anemia, tuberculosis, and organ...

Recreated the face of Pharaoh Ramses II at 90
Brazilian designer Cícero Moraes, who specializes in forensic facial reconstruction, together with Swiss archaeologist Michael Habicht, recreated the face of Ramses II, showing what he might have looked like at about 90 years old. The work (https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.26117353) was based on open data and reference images that included 3D models of the Egyptian pharaoh's skull. "The goal was to understand to what extent the statues are reliable, since many assume that the compatibility would be good," Moraes explained to the Sun. Although the statues "indicate a good compatibility with the shape of the nose and ...

The Influence of Ancient Egyptian on Western Languages
The languages of the Latin, Germanic, and Slavic branches all belong to the great family of Indo-European languages. A study conducted some time ago by Bernal indicates that the Indo-European root appears clearly in over fifty percent of the words commonly used in the various languages we know, such as French, Italian, German, English, etc. The remaining approximately fifty percent belong to etymologies that linguists refer to as originating from the Mediterranean area. Scholars indeed talk about Indo-European and Mediterranean roots which, as previously mentioned, according to Bernal, are almost equal. The Mediterranean area encompasses ...

Under the starry skies of ancient Egypt, amidst the rustling of papyrus and the allure of hieroglyphics, the lives of scribes unfolded. These men of high status, guardians of the precious gift of writing, were tasked with recording administrative acts, drafting sacred texts, and passing down the millennia-old wisdom of their civilization. However, behind the idealized image of these learned keepers of knowledge, a much harsher reality lay hidden. The repetitive tasks, improper postures, and less than ergonomic work environments left indelible marks on their skeletons, telling a story of occupational diseases and chronic pain. Journey Thro...

The Cheope hydrogen
What did the ancient Egyptians have to do with hydrogen and electricity? Did they use fuel cells to produce electricity? Did they burn oxygen and hydrogen to melt metals? A compelling and documented thesis, the result of years of research by Dr. Aldo Adanti, will reveal the secret or true purpose of the Egyptian pyramids. Flammable swamp air "...I believe that water will one day be used as a fuel because the hydrogen and oxygen that constitute it, used separately or together, will provide an inexhaustible source of heat and light......"
