Here below is an example of this newly found Egyptian port. There were over 60 well preserved ships found.

300 statuettes and amulets
Another Oxford researcher, Sanda Heinz, is analysing more than 300 statuettes and amulets from the Late and Ptolemaic Periods, including Egyptian and Greek subjects. The majority depict Egyptian deities such as Osiris, Isis, and their son Horus.

Oh wow, great find there, I hope they do a show on it sometime soon.
Looks about the time of the Ptolemaic Dynasty.

This is some interesting information on the early people of Egypt that I didn't know. Their art was good and seems a bit different.

Like I mentioned in another thread, they have found some interesting things in the great pyramid also.

This is my kind of Ancient Egyptian Festival :drinkingbuddy:

Provocative Yet Sacred: The Ancient Egyptian Festival of Drunkenness

The Festival of Drunkenness is a religiously significant celebration that was held annually (said to be biannually in some places) by the ancient Egyptians. The background story for the celebration of this festival can be found in a text known as The Book of the Heavenly Cow . In this text, there is an ancient Egyptian myth involving the destruction of mankind. According to the myth, human beings were saved from extinction thanks, in part, to alcohol.

I imagine that the Egyptians found a meteorite and must have thought of this as being very special and then someone decided to make a dagger out of it.

5th Element: Tutankhamun’s Dagger Came From Outer Space

Where science fiction turns to science reality?

This latest discovery mirrors part of the story line from the 1997 blockbuster sci-fi film, The 5th Element, where a rare extraterrestrial element, forged into a legendary cosmic weapon, is being smuggled back to Egypt in order to perform a celestial ceremony at one of the Great Pyramids.

Was Tutankhamun really in possession of a 5th element?

IIsn't this interesting ? I am looking forward to finding out what the experts find out from these ancient writings.


These 4,500-year-old writings are the oldest ever found in Egypt

Reveals who really made the pyramids.
JOSH HRALA
18 JUL 2016


Archaeologists in Egypt have recently unveiled a series of 4,500-year-old papyri that they say are the oldest writings ever found in the region.

While this news is awesome by itself, the contents of the documents make the find even better, because they detail the daily lives of the workers who built the Great Pyramid under the reign of Pharaoh Khufu (2589 BC to 2566 BC).

The documents were originally found back in 2013 inside a series of caves near Wadi al-Jarf – an ancient port on the Red Sea – by Egyptologists Pierre Tallet and Sayed Mahfouz.

Until now, no one has really gotten a chance to look at the papyri, but six of the 30 pages will go on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

For Egyptologists, the papyri are a gold mine of information about how ancient Egypt was governed and how the Great Pyramid was built. In fact, most of the documents are from Khufu’s accounting department, which was tasked with keeping track of all the goods moving through his kingdom.

"The documents indicate the highly efficient administrative system in Khufu's reign," said Egypt’s ministry of Antiquities.

Besides detailing how much workers were paid and how their wages were given out (two facts that the team doesn’t go into detail about), it also gives first-hand accounts from the workers who helped build the Great Pyramid, one of the most fascinating and mysterious structures in existence.

"One of the papyri belonged to a senior employee named Marr who played a role in the building of the pyramid and it covered a period of three months of his job, providing information about his duties – including transporting rocks through the River Nile and its canals," said ministry official Hussein Abdel-Bassir, according to an AP report.

Though the documents have been in the possession of Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry since their discovery, officials have just now decided to put them on display in the Egyptian Museum so the public can get a chance to see one of the oldest pieces of writing ever found.

"These discoveries should not be hidden in boxes. We need to attract the attention of the whole world to Egypt; that is why I decided to showcase the papyri because such relics will revive tourism in Egypt," said museum curator Sabah Abdel-Razek.

The papyri announcement comes at a time when researchers are seemingly finding new things out about the Great Pyramid on a monthly basis.

For example, back in June, researchers from the US found out that the pyramid is actually lopsided due to an error made during early construction.

Also, just last week, The Science Channel’s series Unearthed recreated a primitive security system used inside the pyramid that was supposed to keep would-be tomb raiders from pilfering the remains of Khufu, though no one knows if the system truly failed or not because it’s possible that Khufu’s remains haven’t been found yet (cue the mysterious music).

Needless to say, it’s a very exciting time to be an Egyptologist (or a fan of archaeology in general).

Hopefully, as scanning equipment becomes better and better, we will one day unravel all of the pyramids mysteries, but until then at least we have some cool new documents to look over.

I read it earlier today, and have to wonder what else is created up in a box, and warehouse.
The ISIS nuts would destroy it all, and no telling what they have over the last few years.
Obama's Muslim Brotherhood actually considered tearing down the pyramids, and Spinx, I'm glad they didn't get their way.

Not really, but they claim they have been. What they do claim had mostly been took from others.

I don't doubt they did travel some, but likely that one was dragged there for religious reasons. Abudos was a big religious center after all in that period.

Look at the size of those boxes ? That took a lot of work to make and how did they put the giant lids on ? Did they really do all of this work in their idle time because they were bored ? Or was it for some very valid reasons ? What are the reasons ? Perhaps some of the elite actually know the answers to this.

I saw that on a documentary about Animal Mummies, close tho that is a burial place where over a million animals where intoomed, hawks, and cats mostly.
They where offered as sacrifice, and for the priest a very lucrative business.

I wonder what the goldsmith looked like. His statue would be revealing. Some people believe that the ancient Egyptians were a negro population. I wonder what new conclusions the experts will come up with from this find.
