Subject:LINES OF THE GREAT PYRAMID
Posted by:geolines.
Time:11:55 am.

http://geolines.ru/netcat_files/18/10/h_f37e6fe9bcd90edb20784083aa0794e4Thanks to that the most considerable constructions of an antiquity were erected on our planet not chaotically and as it became clear, in strictly certain places and according to the uniform project, the latitudes and meridians they set a certain geodetic System by means of which key objects unite in the general network and wonderfully cooperate among themselves.

In this publication we will consider interaction of lines – the Big circles directlyconnecting the Great pyramid (GP) to the main points of System. Lines
which connect GP to Teothiuacan, Uluru, Stonehenge, Tiwanaku, Easter Island, Nan Madol, Baalbek and Angkor, possess many surprising properties. In particular, they are diagonals of the adjacent rectangles formed by crossings of latitudes and meridians of reper points.
The lines connecting GP to key points, set some symmetric combinations and
reveal a number of the unusual regularities once again confirming existence of System in an arrangement of monumental constructions of an antiquity. Systems - carefully planned, thought over and realized with such grace which allows to carry out at the same time a set of various conditions for very limited number of objects.

As always we remind that more visually all regularities can be seen on an interactive map. It is necessary to have Google Earth plug-in.

Subject:KMT magazines for sale (88 issues)
Posted by:animerei.
Time:8:57 pm.
I hope this is okay to post, if it is not would one of the moderators please either delete this or message me?

I have every issue of KMT magazine (1990 - present) that I'd like to sell.  They are in excellent condition.  I am the original subscriber, so I can guarantee that all magazines have been carefully stored in a smoke-free, pet-free home.  Ideally, I'd like to sell as a complete set.  Based on prices I've seen on eBay (as high as $18 per issue) and the cost of replacement issues directly from the publisher ($10-$14 per issue; limited availability, with many early issues no longer in stock), I'd like to get $900 for the lot.  This would not include shipping; I am willing to ship anywhere in the world.

Images of the issues in question can be viewed HERE.

Time:10:15 pm.
As an astronomer, I love the connection between the ancient Egyptian monuments and celestial motions. Archaeoastronomy or astroarchaeology is the study of astronomical meaning in these ancient structures. Enjoy!

Subject:The Stephen Glanville Memorial Lecture
Posted by:pling.
Time:2:22 pm.
On Saturday I went to the Stephen Glanville Memorial Lecture, which is an annual lecture on Ancient Egypt organised by the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge - this year the subject was "The Maatian Ideal of Social Justice in Ancient Egypt: A Classical African Conception" and it was given by Maulana Karenga. I've written a post about the talk in my personal journal.

Posted by:bookewyrme.
Time:10:00 pm.
 Delurking to post this. I thought this article was interesting, and it didn't look like anyone had posted it yet. Probably because the research seems not to have been reported in any archaeological journals. 

Anyway. www.nytimes.com/2010/02/17/science/17tut.html 
That is the article. Enjoy! ^_^

Subject:Egypt warns pharaohs' tombs could disappear
Posted by:kehleyr.
Time:7:24 pm.
LUXOR, Egypt (AFP) – The ornate pharaonic tombs in Egypt's Valley of the Kings are doomed to disappear within 150 to 500 years if they remain open to tourists, the head of antiquities has warned.

Zahi Hawass said humidity and fungus are eating into the walls of the royal tombs in the huge necropolis on the west bank of the Nile across from Luxor, which is swamped daily by several thousand tourists.

X-posted to ancientegypt , so forgive me if you get this twice. Also, let me know if it's not allowed and I'll nix it. Got some books left over from my degree that I won't be using, and thought people here might appreciate them more.

Subject:Cleopatra's sister found?
Posted by:hvns2mergatroid.
Time:3:52 pm.


ARCHEOLOGISTS and forensic experts believe they have identified the skeleton of Cleopatra’s younger sister, murdered more than 2,000 years ago on the orders of the Egyptian queen.

The remains of Princess Arsinöe, put to death in 41BC on the orders of Cleopatra and her Roman lover Mark Antony to eliminate her as a rival, are the first relics of the Ptolemaic dynasty to be identified. The breakthrough, by an Austrian team, has provided pointers to Cleopatra’s true ethnicity. Scholars have long debated whether she was Greek or Macedonian like her ancestor the original Ptolemy, a Macedonian general who was made ruler of Egypt by Alexander the Great, or whether she was north African.

Evidence obtained by studying the dimensions of Arsinöe’s skull shows she had some of the characteristics of white Europeans, ancient Egyptians and black Africans, indicating that Cleopatra was probably of mixed race, too. They were daughters of Ptolemy XII by different wives.

Subject:Updates on the screaming mummy
Posted by:priscamor.
Time:9:00 am.




"There, wrapped in a sheep or goatskin - a ritually unclean object for ancient Egyptians - lay the body of a young man, his face locked in an eternal blood-curdling scream. It was a spine-tingling sight, and one that posed even more troubling questions: here was a mummy, carefully preserved, yet caught in the moment of death in apparently excruciating pain.

He had been buried in exalted company, yet been left without an inscription, ensuring he would be consigned to eternal damnation, as the ancient Egyptians believed identity was the key to entering the afterlife. Moreover, his hands and feet had been so tightly bound that marks still remained on the bones.

Who could he be, this screaming man, assigned the anonymous label 'Man E' in the absence of a proper name? "

__________


"...Using sophisticated-technology, including CT scanning, Xrays and facial reconstruction, to examine the mummy, they uncovered tantalizing new clues that could reveal his identity..."
