    Scientists analysing ancient DNA from Egyptian mummies have discovered they overwhelmingly share genes with people from Europe and not Africa, as previously believed. The first ever full-genome study of mummies dating from 1400 BC to 400 AD found that the ancient Egyptians were closely related to populations in the Levant – now modern day Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Israel.Daily Mail reports: They were also genetically similar to Neolithic populations from the Anatolian Peninsula and Europe. In plain English, Egyptians were related to Persians, Rome and Greece whom were all white European people.The groundbreaking study used recent advances in DNA...

  • Cryptic lost Canaanite language decoded on 'Rosetta Stone'-like tablets

    01/31/2023 9:28:49 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 11 replies ^ | 01/31/2023 | Tom Metcalfe
    Two ancient clay tablets discovered in Iraq and covered from top to bottom in cuneiform writing contain details of a "lost" Canaanite language that has remarkable similarities with ancient Hebrew. The tablets, thought to be nearly 4,000 years old, record phrases in the almost unknown language of the Amorite people, who were originally from Canaan — the area that's roughly now Syria, Israel and Jordan — but who later founded a kingdom in Mesopotamia. These phrases are placed alongside translations in the Akkadian language, which can be read by modern scholars. In effect, the tablets are similar to the famous...

    High-profile Egyptian belly dancer Sama el-Masry was sentenced to three years in prison Saturday after prosecutors said she posted sexually suggestive videos to TikTok. El-Masry, 42, was arrested in April and accused of inciting debauchery and committing “immorality” by sharing the content. But the dancer has denied uploading the videos to the social media platform, telling authorities the content was stolen from her phone and posted by somebody else without her consent. John Talaat, a member of parliament who asked for legal action against el-Masry and other female TikTok users, told Reuters that the dancer and other female social media...

    Ancient Egyptian art frequently depicts people wearing cone-shaped headgear, but none has ever been found. Now an international team of archaeologists has uncovered the first ever physical evidence of Egyptian head cones in the ancient city of Armarna, 194 miles south of the capital Cairo. The head cones, made from wax, were discovered at two graves in 2010 and 2015. They were found in fragments but researchers have been able to reconstruct their shape. They provide the first conclusive evidence that the objects actually existed and were worn by Egyptians, according to the archaeologists.

    Ancient Egyptians have long been depicted wearing so-called head cones, but until now, archaeologists had no physical evidence of their existence. Now, two such head cones, made of wax, have been discovered on the skulls of two individuals buried about 3,300 years ago at the site of Amarna in Egypt. Between 1550 B.C. and 30 B.C., Egyptian art depicted people wearing what look like cones on their heads. Because no examples of these cones had ever been found, archaeologists wondered whether they actually existed or were an artistic motif that had no basis in reality The two cone-wearing individuals were...

    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri has called on Muslims to attack U.S., European, Israeli and Russian targets in a speech on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. SITE Intelligence Group reports that in a video released by the militant group, Zawahri also criticizes "backtrackers" from jihad, referring to former jihadis who changed their views in prison and called the 9/11 attacks unacceptable because innocent civilians were harmed. Zawahri, an Egyptian, became leader of al Qaeda following the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan by U.S. Navy SEALS. He is believed to be hiding somewhere in...

    The mystery of the final resting place of the wife of Ancient Egypt's most famous ruler has moved a step closer to being solved. Egyptologists previously discovered what they believe is the burial chamber of Ankhesenamun, Tutankhamun's wife, in the Valley of The Kings. If confirmed, it could help to unravel the final fate of the boy king's wife, who suddenly disappeared from historical records after her second marriage. The teen bride is believed to have had a tragic life, marrying her father, her grandfather and her half-brother Tutankhamun. Archaeologists have now begun to excavate an area near a tomb...
