Carbon dating shows ancient Egypt's rapid expansion - life - 04 September 2013 The powerful civilisation of ancient Egypt took just a few centuries to build, according to a radiocarbon dating study that sets the first solid chronology for the period. Five thousand years ago, Egypt became the world's first territorial state with strict borders, organised religion, centralised administration and intensive agriculture. It lasted for millennia and set a template that countries still follow today. Archaeologists have assumed it developed gradually from the pastoral communities that preceded it, but physicist Mike Dee from the University of Oxford and his colleagues now suggest that the transition could have taken as little as 600 years. The early history of ancient Egypt is murky because although there are plenty of archaeological finds, including royal tombs, there is no reliable way to attribute firm dates to the various reigns and periods. To improve on that, Dee and his colleagues used a computerised statistical approach known as Bayesian modelling. The first king
Jesus as a reincarnation of Horus By Kevin Williams Reincarnation is the ancient belief of how the circumstances of our lives are often governed by the karma (both good and bad) of lives we have lived in the past. Bad karma committed in previous lives which are not overcome, means the same negative circumstances will confront the person over and over again in future lives until they are overcome. Jesus was referred to as the chief cornerstone (or "capstone") - a reference to the top stone of an Egyptian pyramid. The story of Horus can be found in "The Egyptian Book of the Dead (also known as the "Papyrus of Ani") written over 3,000 years before the birth of Christ. Rosetta stone Ever since its rediscovery, the stone has been the focus of nationalist rivalries, including its transfer from French to British possession during the Napoleonic Wars, a long-running dispute over the relative value of Young and Champollion's contributions to the decipherment, and since 2003, demands for the stone's return to Egypt. Description Original stele One possible reconstruction of the original stele The Rosetta Stone is a fragment of a larger stele. The full length of the hieroglyphic text and the total size of the original stele, of which the Rosetta Stone is a fragment, can be estimated based on comparable stelae that have survived, including other copies of the same order. suggest that it originally had a rounded top. The height of the original stele is estimated to have been about 149 centimetres (59 in). Memphis decree and its context Political forces beyond the borders of Egypt exacerbated the internal problems of the Ptolemaic kingdom.
Ruins of Bustling Port Unearthed at Egypt's Giza Pyramids TORONTO — The remains of a bustling port and barracks for sailors or military troops have been discovered near the Giza Pyramids. They were in use while the pyramids were being built about 4,500 years ago. The archaeologists have been excavating a city near the Giza Pyramids that dates mainly to the reign of the pharaoh Menkaure, who built the last pyramid at Giza. Also near the pyramids they have been excavating a town, located close to a monument dedicated to Queen Khentkawes, possibly a daughter of Menkaure. The barracks are located at the city, while a newly discovered basin, that may be part of a harbor, is located by the Khentkawes town. Several discoveries at the city and Khentkawes town suggest Giza was a thriving port, said archaeologist Mark Lehner, the director of Ancient Egypt Research Associates. This basin may be "an extension of a harbor or waterfront," Lehner said at a recent symposium held here by the Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities. A military presence
'Jesus Christ didn't exist' according to Michael Paulkovich who found no mention of him in historical texts | Daily Mail Online Writer Michael Paulkovich has claimed that there is little evidence for a person known as Jesus existing in historyJesus is thought to have lived from about 7BC to 33AD in the Roman EmpireHowever Paulkovich says he found little to no mention of the supposed messiah in 126 texts written in the first to third centuriesOnly one mention of Jesus was present, in a book by Roman historian Josephus Flavius, but he says this was added by later editorsHe says this is surprising despite the ‘alleged worldwide fame’ of JesusAnd this has led him to believe that Jesus was a 'mythical character' By Jonathan O'Callaghan for MailOnline Published: 09:59 GMT, 1 October 2014 | Updated: 10:48 GMT, 2 October 2014 Historical researcher Michael Paulkovich has claimed that Jesus of Nazareth was a ‘mythical character’ and never existed. The controversial discovery was apparently made after he found no verifiable mention of Christ from 126 writers during the ‘time of Jesus’ from the first to third centuries.
Longhouse A longhouse or long house is a type of long, proportionately narrow, single-room building built by peoples in various parts of the world including Asia, Europe and North America. Many were built from timber and often represent the earliest form of permanent structure in many cultures. Types include the Neolithic long house of Europe, the stone Medieval Dartmoor longhouse which also housed livestock, and the various types of longhouses built by different cultures among the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Europe There are two European longhouse types of designs that are now extinct. The medieval longhouse types of Europe of which some have survived are among others: Dartmoor granite longhouse Medieval development of the Germanic longhouse The Americas In South America, the Tucano people of Colombia and northwest Brazil traditionally combine a household in a single long house.

The Pyramid Parallax: Light, Electricity & Music of the Spheres « Siderealview's Blog Ra worship: following the sun on the Giza plateau Any technology beyond our own would seem like magic to us Arthur C. Clarke Recent discoveries emerging from Egypt suggest the existence in prehistory of a world-wide pyramid/sacred temple system, mounted like antennae on key earth energy meridians which were used by ancient priest-scientists as an electrical system; as a network to produce healing sound frequencies; or even in times of emergency, to stabilize the tectonic plates of the planet by means of harmonics. Modern engineers are familiar with the properties of quartz (oscillating frequencies in electronics; timepieces all rely on quartz crystal) and that the flow of water through chalk (limestone, calcium carbonate) can replicate the flow of electricity like current from a battery.

Evidence That the Human Body is a Projection of Consciousness In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible? Human Thought Determines Reality One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. Early in the 1900′s they proved this beyond a shadow of a doubt with an experiment called the double slit experiment. For example: electrons under the same conditions would sometimes act like particles, and then at other times they would switch to acting like waves (formless energy), because it was completely dependent on what the observer expected was going to happen. The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave.
History of Chinese art Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern, originated in or is practiced in China or by Chinese artists. The Chinese art in the Republic of China (Taiwan) and that of overseas Chinese can also be considered part of Chinese art where it is based in or draws on Chinese heritage and Chinese culture. Early "stone age art" dates back to 10,000 BC, mostly consisting of simple pottery and sculptures. After this early period Chinese art, like Chinese history, is typically classified by the succession of ruling dynasties of Chinese emperors, most of which lasted several hundred years. Chinese art has arguably the oldest continuous tradition in the world, and is marked by an unusual degree of continuity within, and consciousness of, that tradition, lacking an equivalent to the Western collapse and gradual recovery of classical styles. Painting The two main techniques in Chinese painting are: Sculpture Pottery Decorative arts Neolithic pottery Pottery
Mysterious Building -- Older Than Pyramids? British archaeologists have unearthed the remains of a mysterious prehistoric structure that might be older than Egypt’s pyramids. Discovered during work at a housing development in Monmouth, Wales, the bulky feature consists of a series of trenches possibly housing the timber foundations of a massive building. NEWS: Swedish Stonehenge? Stone Structure Spurs Debate "We have what appear to be huge parallel sleeper beams set close to the edge of an ancient, dried up lake," archaeologist Steve Clarke of Monmouth Archaeology told Discovery News. Made from what seems to be entire tree trunks, the sleeper beams are huge, measuring more than 50 ft in lenght and more than 3 ft across. "It's huge and presumably prehistoric but otherwise we haven't a clue what it is, we don't know how old it is and we don't know how long it is," Clarke said. Continuing beyond the excavations, the timber structure was cut into the surface of a burnt mound, presumably dating to the Bronze Age.
Ancient Confession Found: 'We Invented Jesus Christ' Jesus Christ: completely constructed from other stories for an ancient Roman propaganda campaign? [Jesus Christ] may be the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources. London (PRWEB UK) 8 October 2013 American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before the British public for the first time in London on the 19th of October to present a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ. Although to many scholars his theory seems outlandish, and is sure to upset some believers, Atwill regards his evidence as conclusive and is confident its acceptance is only a matter of time. Was Jesus based on a real person from history? How could this go unnoticed in the most scrutinised books of all time? Is this the beginning of the end of Christianity?
Norse art Timeline for the Norse animal styles. Viking Age art or Norse art is a term for the art of Scandinavia and Viking settlements elsewhere, especially in the British Isles, during the Viking Age. Viking art has many elements in common with Celtic Art, Romanesque art and East-European (Eurasian). Historical Context Styles The animal ornamentation of the Viking Age is usually categorized into Oseberg style, Borre style, Jelling style, Mammen style, Ringerike style and Urnes style. Oseberg style The Oseberg style is a Viking Era animal ornamentation in Viking Age art. It is named after the Oseberg ship grave, a well-preserved Viking age ship discovered in a large burial mound at the Oseberg farm near Tønsberg in Vestfold County, Norway. The characteristic motif of the style is gripping beasts. The main symbol of the Viking Age is the Viking ship. A "Shield List" is where all the shields of the warriors were tied up.
