PostForum: Miscellaneous   Posted: Sat May 16, 2020 12:39 pm   Subject: controversial Considerations
My controversial topic is that I think Tutankhamun may have died in battle. This could account for his apparent unexpected death, leading to the rush to prepare his burial and for Ay to take the thron ...

PostForum: Pharaohs and Queens   Posted: Fri May 08, 2020 9:01 am   Subject: Tut harem?
The answer is "probably" - we know that Akhenaten and Amenhotep III both had harems, at Gurob for example, but we don't have concrete evidence. It seems that Tutankhamun ruled from Memphis, ...

The flail likely did permit access to the pyramid, as part of the kingly regalia and "uniform". Most people at the time would only have recognised the king by him or occasionally her wearing ...

Such seemingly minor subtleties influenced their designs.
Start to get into their frame of thinking with the flail. Two beads measures the length of one band on the handle it's an important exercise ...

Explaining what you mean without being vague is what I’d like. I have an open mind but it helps to have any statements backed up by evidence - at the very least informed speculation. The latter is whe ...

The crook and flail both go back to the birth of the Egyptian state and reference the beginning of agriculture and animal husbandry on the banks of the nile. The state was grown from farming up, and p ...

I always thought the crook and flail plus crossed arms is about the duality of kingship - protective and nurturing while also protective and destructive (to enemies). The crossed arms can indicate pro ...

PostForum: Miscellaneous   Posted: Sat Apr 18, 2020 12:42 pm   Subject: why Find Nefertiti?
There's interest in finding anything to do with Nefertiti because she is one of only 3 or 4 potential tourists that anyone might have heard of.

In Egyptological circles any find - particularly rel ...

Whatever it may be, items referencing Tuthmosis II are very rare in contrast to Hatchepsut. The fact that a tomb for him is not known definitively is interesting. I do accept that it could be one of t ...

It's a shame because the 18th - 20th dynasties in particular include some cracking stories -

Rise of Hatchepsut - from princess to king
Tuthmosis IV and the dream stelae - and whatever went on w ...

In addition to the post above, on reading about Anen, his name has an interesting link to that of Nefertiti - both have the first glyph in their names reversed. This fact is pointed out in this paper ...

The official line from Egypt or Zahi Hawass has some issues. The two foetuses in Tut's grave where his children and they were female line relatives of Queen Tiye's mother but not through Tiye and Amen ...

Right, current theory has KV55 as Smenkhare (Tut's father). Nefertiti, KV21B; Akhesenamun (KV21A) (Tut's wife). KV35YL Meritaten. (Tut's mum/Smenkhare's wife)

Whose current theory? The official l ...
