Carnegie Museum of Natural History: Life in Ancient Egypt Life in Ancient Egypt Welcome to Life in Ancient Egypt, a companion online exhibition to Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt at Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Carnegie Museum of Natural History has acquired Egyptian artifacts since its founding and now holds about twenty-five-hundred ancient Egyptian artifacts. The most significant of these objects, over six hundred of them, are displayed in Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt. In the hall the artifacts are displayed in relation to the daily life and traditions of the people who made them, so that the objects are seen in the context of the culture. To present a cohesive picture of ancient Egyptian society, its technology, its social system, and its beliefs, we have arranged the objects in several thematic areas. You may choose from the links to the left or follow the suggested path by clicking the Next button on each screen.

Wikipedia The creation of a reliable chronology of Ancient Egypt is a task fraught with problems. While the overwhelming majority of Egyptologists agree on the outline and many of the details of a common chronology, disagreements either individually or in groups have resulted in a variety of dates offered for rulers and events. This variation begins with only a few years in the Late Period, gradually growing to three decades at the beginning of the New Kingdom, and eventually to as much as a three centuries by the start of the Old Kingdom. The "Conventional Egyptian chronology" is the scholarly consensus, placing the beginning of the Middle Kingdom in the 21st century BC. Counting regnal years[edit] The first problem the student of Egyptian chronology faces is that the ancient Egyptians used no single system of dating, or consistent system of regnal years. Synchronisms[edit] A useful way to work around these gaps in knowledge is to find chronological synchronisms. Conventional chronology[edit]

Valley of the other kings: Lost dynasty found in Egypt - News - Archaeology Excavations at Abydos, 70 miles north-west of Egypt's famous Valley of the Kings, have revealed the existence of an entire royal cemetery, now believed to be the final resting place of up to 16 mysterious pharaohs - an entire dynasty whose existence was up till now virtually unknown to the Egyptological world. Bizarrely more than a century ago, in 1901-1902, a British team, led by the famous Egyptologist, Flinders Petrie, entered four of the tombs - but had no idea as to who they belonged to or even of their high-status. Ironically, the vital inscription revealing the existence of the lost kingdom and indicating the cemetery's royal status, was in a tomb buried deep under the desert sand less than 20 metres from where they were digging. But there was no proof until the last few weeks when a team of American Egyptologists discovered a previously unknown tomb buried under three metres of sand.

Ancient Egyptian scripts (hieroglyphs, hieratic and demotic) Origins of Egyptian Hieroglyphs The ancient Egyptians believed that writing was invented by the god Thoth and called their hieroglyphic script "mdju netjer" ("words of the gods"). The word hieroglyph comes from the Greek hieros (sacred) plus glypho (inscriptions) and was first used by Clement of Alexandria. The earliest known examples of writing in Egypt have been dated to 3,400 BC. The hieroglyphic script was used mainly for formal inscriptions on the walls of temples and tombs. After the Emperor Theodsius I ordered the closure of all pagan temples throughout the Roman empire in the late 4th century AD, knowledge of the hieroglyphic script was lost. decipher the script. Decipherment Many people have attempted to decipher the Egyptian scripts since the 5th century AD, when Horapollo provided explanations of nearly two hundred glyphs, some of which were correct. Notable features Used to write: Egyptian, an Afro-Asiatic language spoken in Egypt until about the 10th century AD. Determinatives

Immortelle Égypte Genèse d’une civilisation Un peu d'histoire » L'Égypte pharaonique : Panorama de plus de 5000 ans d'histoire en un clin d'œil ! Au contact du Moyen-Orient et du monde méditerranéen, la civilisation égyptienne a rayonné pendant trois mille ans. L'une des périodes les plus passionnantes de l'histoire de l'homme est celle du néolithique, « l'âge de la nouvelle pierre ». Dans la vallée du Nil, les premières traces d'occupation humaine remontent à 700 000 ans. Il y a 10 000 ans, la mer Méditerranée était coupée en deux grands bassins par un isthme qui réunissait la Tunisie et l'Italie en passant par l'île de Malte. Entre 10 000 et 8 000 avant J.C., un cataclysme, dont on ignore la cause et la nature, provoque d'énormes changements, le pont entre la Tunisie et l'Italie s'affaisse, ne laissant émergées que les îles maltaises. Entre 8 000 et 5 000 avant J.C. En Mésopotamie, au contraire, il faudra attendre 2300 av.

New Chronology of the World History (Win1251) The chronology of ancient and medieval history in its present form was created and completed to a considerable extent in a series of works during the 16th and 18th centuries, beginning with J.Scaliger (1540-1609), the "founder of modern chronological science" and D.Petavius (1583-1652). However, the series of these works is not entirely complete, since, as the well-known chronologist E.Bickerman observes, "there is no adequate, full-scale treatment of ancient chronology". Chronology is what tells us how much time has elapsed between some historical event and the present. The accepted traditional chronology of ancient and medieval world rests on quite a snaky basis. It is not surprising that certain skeptical minds have made dramatic conclusions from above-mentioned difficulties: de Arcilla, I.Newton, J.Hardouin, R.Baldauf, E.Johnson, N.A.Morozov and others.
