Does anybody know what happened with reconstruction of Turin King List and with new fragments found? I really wonder, especially about a missing names of pharaohs? If anybody knows any fresh information let share. Thank you. Smile

Evidently, missing portions of the original document have been found in the Turin Museum. The following is taken from a blog concerning the find:

Egyptologist Federico Bottigliengo of the Museo Egizio of Turin, in whose basement the discovery was made, noted:
We are confident that the recovered fragments will help reconstruct some of the missing parts as well as add new knowledge to Egyptian history and chronology.
It is possible that some dates will have to be changed and names of pharaohs will have to be added.

That is such an exciting news.

I can't help wondering whose names will be added. Idea

Am expecting more information.

Very exciting, although the history of this document suggests that it will take a few years of analysis and much discussion (and not improbably a few theses and dissertations) before a consensus emerges about the placement of the "new" fragments.

I'd be interested in learning more about this too... is the blog you referenced the best place to go, and if so, what's the link?

It's here, Montuhotep88:

You might have more luck doing a google search--"new fragments of Turin king list" that's how I found this one.

I think it would be helpfull for any translation to place it properly. On the first look we can see 2 fragments - different positions. So again we have the prove, that the old Gardiner reconstruction is wrong in some points Sad

But I am looking at Gardiners transcript - I think http://www.ancient-egypt.co.uk/turin/images/turin_royal_canon_gardiner.jpg is one of them. Does someone have more?
