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...

There is a belief that the cartoon " The Simpsons " predicts facts and events in advance that then happen in reality. This time it seems the opposite: the Simpsons were "predicted" in none other than Ancient Egypt. The unexpected and unusual connection emerged with the recent discovery of a 3,000-year-old Egyptian sarcophagus , which bears a striking resemblance to one of the show's most famous characters, Marge . During the New Kingdom period, sarcophagi lids were known for their intricate and detailed designs. However, one in particular has attracted attention on social media for a truly curious detail: a figure that resembles the m...

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.

The Forty-two Commandments of Maat
The Goddess Maat held a place of great importance in ancient Egyptian religion, embodying the core principles of Justice and Truth. Her iconography is rich with symbolism, most notably featuring the scale and the feather, the latter always depicted on her head in artistic representations. Maat was more than a deity; she personified Cosmic Order, standing in stark contrast to the sterile chaos that threatened harmony. Her influence extended deeply into Egyptian society, with her priests developing a comprehensive set of guidelines designed to foster social improvement and individual integrity. Unlike the punitive nature of many modern lega...

The nine spiritual bodies of Man in ancient Egypt
The Egyptian Religion was a true science of spiritual transformation and described in detail all the spiritual bodies that, according to its beliefs, belong to Man. Unlike Christianity, which generalizes these concepts under the term "soul," the Egyptians identified distinct elements, each with unique characteristics and functions. This ancient belief system reveals surprising parallels with modern psychological theories, highlighting the sophistication of Egyptian thought. The Egyptians' comprehensive view of human spirituality encompassed aspects like the divine spark (Ba), the astral body (Ka), and the shadow (Khabit), among others...

Optical lenses in ancient Egypt
Egypt is a fantastic land, full of fabulous myths, legends and symbolism. But even from a technological point of view it didn't have much to envy of the current world. Among the most impressive technical skills was the grinding of the very hard quartz crystals used in the representation of the eyes in the statues. A wooden statue in good condition still shows the perfect smoothness of the Hyaline Quartz crystals, which perfectly rendered the translucent transparency of human eyes. A similar ability made it possible to create today sight lenses, microscopes and telescopes and this was perhaps the secret of the great knowledge of Astron...

Was the Great Pyramid of Giza an ancient power plant?

The pyramids would use technology similar to that created by Nikola Tesla with the Wardenclyffe Tower in Colorado Springs. The pyramids would be made with a series of conductive and insulating materials, as well as being built on land that has a high rate of natural radioactivity and telluric currents. The conversion of this energy perhaps combined with cosmic radiation through the gold tip of the pyramid may have been able to produce energy.

Was the Great Pyramid of Giza an ancient power plant?
The idea that civilizations around the world have evolved from a primitive state to a more advanced one is something scholars have propagated as the ultimate truth in our society, schools, and history books. However, numerous researchers around the world suggest otherwise. In fact, ancient civilizations were much more advanced than we commonly believe. Examining historical references from numerous ancient civilizations worldwide reveals patterns and details that tell a different story than the one presented in school books. For example, pyramids might have been immense high-voltage power plants. The pyramidal shape itself suggests energy ...

The Cheops pyramid is capable of concentrating radio waves

In 2018 scientists studied the characteristics of the Cheops pyramid and come to the conclusion that it is capable of concentrating electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and focusing it in the space below it. The discovery was published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

The Cheops pyramid was built in the middle of the third millennium BC on the initiative of Pharaoh Khufu (Khufu), representative of the fourth dynasty of the Old Kingdom: the period of construction of all the "great pyramids" of Egypt. This construction, 145 meters high, 230 meters wide and 230 meters long, remains one of the tallest and largest structures ever built by humanity. Over the last two centuries, inside the pyramid, scientists have discovered four rooms, one of which supposedly buried the pharaoh himself, the other his wife, the third was considered a bait or trap for thieves, and the fourth room was recently found by physicis...

Face of an Egyptian pharaoh recreated 3,500 years after his brutal murder
An archaeologist from Flinders University in Australia has reconstructed the face of the Egyptian pharaoh Seqenenra Taa II , known as "The Brave" of the 17 th Dynasty, who reigned, for a short period, during the occupation of Egypt by the Hyksos. The images, published last week in the journal OrtogOnLineMag, are part of an independent facial approximation work , based on previously published data and research on the topic. Experts have managed to carry out a forensic reconstruction of the pharaoh's face, both his life face and his 'post-mortem' state, as well as the position of the objects that caused the skull injuries that l...

The pyramids of Giza, Egypt. In the center, the Pyramid of Cheops, the largest of all.
The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, are a milestone in the history of human civilization. There are three pyramids in the Complex: the Pyramid of Cheops (also known as the Great Pyramid), the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure. Located on the outskirts of the capital Cairo, the pyramids were built by three pharaohs in ancient Egypt, around 4,500 years ago. Considered a work of architecture, the pyramids are one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the only Wonder of the Ancient World still standing. The Cheops pyramid is the oldest and also the tallest of the three. Built by Pharaoh Cheops around 2560 BC, it was the tallest building ...

Fragment of the granite sarcophagus identified as that of Ramses II
Ramesses II was the third pharaoh of the 19 th Dynasty during the New Kingdom period. His reign is often considered the most celebrated in Egypt's history, marked by several major military campaigns and numerous monument-building projects. Based on supporting historical accounts, most Egyptologists suggest that Ramesses II ascended the throne in 1279 BC and reigned until his death at the age of about 90 in 1212 or 1213 BC. His remains were interred in a tomb complex (designated KV7) in the Valley of the Kings, located opposite the tomb of his sons (KV5) and near the tomb (KV8) of his son and successor, Merenptah. During the reign of ...

The Egyptian influence on global culture, christianity and masonic symbolism

“In the centuries preceding the dynasties of the pharaohs, when historical events were not yet handed down to posterity, there were intelligent men like us. Those men felt the need to know the cosmos and understand the meaning of existence. But ignoring science and not possessing the necessary technology, they resorted to their intelligence and genius, that is, they used a form of thought that we have long forgotten, I am referring to internal and intuitive spiritual research” (Robert Bauval)

The Egyptian influence on global culture, christianity and masonic symbolism
At the dawn of history, thousands of years before Christ, a civilization gathered its forces to build the largest monuments on earth: the pyramids of Giza. 13 million tons of stone blocks, enough to build the city of London, were transported across the desert. Why? What worldview justified such an undertaking? Classical archaeologists claim that these were tombs for three pharaohs. Robert Bauval, English writer and researcher, born in Alexandria, Egypt, spent much of his life in the shadow of the great pyramids. He believes that a much higher purpose is behind their construction and for the last twenty years he has sought to discover the ...

Brien Foerster and the secret chambers beneath the Giza plateau

Many scholars have hypothesized the existence of a dense network of tunnels that runs through the entire subsoil of the Giza Plateau, connecting some underground chambers, the most important of which would be located under the front legs of the Sphinx.

There are many "alternative" scholars convinced of the existence of a series of secret chambers located under the Giza Plateau and connected to each other by a dense network of tunnels. Among them, certainly the best known is Brien Foerster, independent researcher and archaeologist and curator of the highly visited website hiddenincatours.com In an expedition to Egypt, which Foerster reports on his website, the archaeologist began a more in-depth search for clues that could confirm the tunnels and chambers hypothesis. In one of the photos published by Foerster it is possible to see a stone that seems to cover the rear entrance underground...
