New timeline for origin of ancient Egypt

New timeline for origin of ancient Egypt

A new timeline for the origin of ancient Egypt has been established by scientists.

A team from the UK found that the transformation from a land of disparate farmers into a state ruled by a king was more rapid than previously thought.

Using radiocarbon dating and computer models, they believe the civilisation's first ruler - King Aha - came to power in about 3100BC.

The research is published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A.

Very big changes in 300 years.

For all we know their could have been a older ancestral civilization that predate pre dynastic Egypt and Sumer.

This makes the Egyptian socieity even more amazing. To do what they did in a relatively shorter period makes their accomplishments more important.

300 years is a very realistic timeline for extensive progress,look at us 300 years ago up to now.

I don't think it's fair to compare like that.

I would say that once you reach a threshold in tecnology, which we reached quite recently, the progress will develop exponentially, up until then progress is much slower,

I don't have time right now to develop my thoughts further, but I hope you understand what I mean.

Yes this was quantum leap.

And to think they did that without the help of Abnormal Aerialists.

It would be interesting to see if there is evidence of an earlier civilization as Mr. Toledo suggests.

New timeline for origin of ancient Egypt

Nice article Waspie_Dwarf. Although it's not really "new" information, particularly since the funerary boat of King Den (1st Dynasty - c.3000 BC) was found at Abu Rawash and 14 boats likely also of King Aha which were found at Abydos, it's good to see another level of support for what was a rather fascinating period of Egyptian history.

A lot can be accomplished in just three-hundred years..

The Egyptians had a fairly advanced priest-caste society for the age.

Despite their obsession with death; which can be attributed to the unreliability of the Nile with it flooding, thus disrupting agriculture and leading to starvation..

Given their architectural achievements and their advancements in engineering, however, it makes them all the more impressive.

Immanuel Velikovski wrote that the present understanding of time lines was not correct. This may relate to his Ages in Chaos. Since, shorting the time interval means Egyptian Pharaohs were either fewer in number or had shorter reigns than presently dated. Fewer in number is possible and would make some interesting interactions with the Levant possible.

Velikovski was a charlatan, along with Sitchin and Fomenko with his totaly false "new chronology". All three deal in lies and pseudo science.

While at first sight 10% does not look like a big change, on second thought that was the time span it took us from the industrial revolution to the computer age. It could have meant the difference from bronze casting to bronze forging, or from very brittle tools to pretty strong tools.

Velikovski was a charlatan....

But useful, as in "Citing Bellesiles on history is like citing Velikovski on astronomy." :D
