Impossible to say who Smenkhkare was. There’s only one solid piece of evidence that he existed at all - the depiction in the tomb of Meryre II.

He could have been a son of Akhenaten rather than a ...

At first I was excited to learn of this book, but I find it disappointing to learn the author argues for the non-existence of Smenkhare.

Worth noting that all of the evidence is presented - as well ...

Have read this book, a reasonably up to date (2019) examination of all the material relating to Smenkhkare specifically.

The book covers the "discovery" of Smenkhkare, interpretations of ...

Any idea where this was taken? I'm guessing his memorial temple?

Akhenaten could literally have systematically razed every temple and buried every priest to erase competition to the Aten if his goal had been ideologically drhven to set the Aten as the sole god in p ...

18. Was Akhenaten really a heretic or did he perfect Amun (the hidden one) by hiding Amun more perfectly?


I don’t know if heretic is quite the correct term - I think that’s something that’s be ...

Bottom line, you are saying the mummy in KV62 is not Tutankhamun, that the mummy is a stand-in or substitute because the real king was either buried elsewhere or not at all.

I can’t accept that, d ...

You really should study KV54 as it could support your thoughts about the funeral procession. It's a lesser known tomb (pit really) but the contents are fascinating. KV63 seems more suitable for storag ...

I appreciate the time you took to write all of that because it is a lot easier to grasp than your earlier posts.

Something I have been wondering for some time is how KV63 and KV54 fit into the nar ...

I just realised that elements of this discussion have similarities to the Robin Cook novel and film “Sphinx” - the significance of the guardian statues, coded messages that have to be deciphered and t ...

My statement would make no sense if based on concepts or constructs that are not yet familiar to you but I will try it.

Add to the above that priests / restorers of the TIP clearly thought that the named mummies cached in DB320 and KV35 were kings, queens and other royal family members. DNA has also linked 19th and 20t ...

The problem with the 3 mummies construct is that we know that they were all originally interred elsewhere.

KV35EL (Tiye) had space constructed for her in the tomb of her husband in the VOK and also ...
