Arqueólogos hallan una estatua de Ramsés II con más de 3.000 años de antigüedad en Egipto

Arqueólogos hallan una estatua de Ramsés II con más de 3.000 años de antigüedad en Egipto | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

Un equipo de arqueólogos, compuesto por egipcios y alemanes, ha descubierto una estatua de Ramsés II, con más de 3.000 años de antigüedad, en el templo de la diosa Bastet, en la provincia de Sharqiya, en el norte de Egipto.

La figura, que data de la XIX dinastía (entre el 1.295 y el 1.186 a.C.), mide 1,95 metros de largo por 1,60 de ancho y es de granito rojo, informó este jueves el ministro egipcio de Antigüedades, Mohamed Ibrahim, en un comunicado. En su parte de atrás, la figura tiene inscripciones jeroglíficas con el nombre de Ramsés II, que es uno de los faraones del Imperio Nuevo, perteneciente a la XIX dinastía, y de varios dioses. La pieza fue hallada durante excavaciones al este del Gran Templo, como también se conoce el santuario de Bastet, que se representaba con forma de gato y era protectora del hogar, a 85 kilómetros al noreste de El Cairo.

9000 year old de-fleshing ritual revealed in the Philippines - Archaeology News from Past Horizons

9000 year old de-fleshing ritual revealed in the Philippines - Archaeology News from Past Horizons | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

Archaeologists have recently published in the International Journal of Osteoarcheology, a full report on the discovery of early Holocene burials while excavating in the Ille cave, Palawan, Philippines, where the bones of one individual bear the marks of a complex de-fleshing ritual.

The island of Palawan, situated between Borneo to the south and the Philippine archipelago to the north and east, is important for its links with the Sundaic region of Southeast Asia. Many cave sites are known from the island, including Tabon Cave, which has the earliest recovered human remains in the Philippines (c. 45,000 years old).

 

Cremation burial as found. Ille cave site in the background. Images: V. Paz & H. Lewis

Ille is a solution cave and rockshelter at the base of a c. 75m-high karst tower near the village of New Ibajay, El Nido.  The site comprises east and west rock-shelter mouths, opening onto a relatively flat platform of silt loam, in a setting of light woodland. In 1998 the National Museum of the Philippines began a long-term survey and excavation programme in the region, including Ille and other nearby caves and their surroundings.

The Intriguing Ancient Underground City of Derinkuyu

The Intriguing Ancient Underground City of Derinkuyu | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

Long ago, in the region surrounding Nevsehir and Kayseri, in central Turkey, an ancient people built, or rather dug, over 200 underground cities. The deepest of these, under the present day town of Derinkuyu, delves over 250 feet below the Earth’s surface, and boasts numerous tunnels, halls, meeting rooms, wells and passages.

Because the city was carved from existing caves and underground structures that had first formed naturally, there is no way to discern, with traditional archaeological methods of dating, when exactly Derinkuyu was built. As such, and with ties to the Hittites, Phrygians and Persians, Derinkuyu presents a fascinating riddle for ancient mystery enthusiasts.

Or perhaps, they did have access to modern-like tools. We have an assumption that they don't, but until the day we find concrete evidence, the question still remains a mystery in my mind.

Maps are much more than just directions to a place.  From ancient maps we can see what areas were controlled or had power in an area, the location of important landmarks, and which places were considered more valuable.  Maps provide an interesting view into the beliefs of people in the past.

La civilización egipcia se formó mucho antes de lo que se pensaba

La civilización egipcia se formó mucho antes de lo que se pensaba | historian: people and cultures | Scoop.it

a historia nunca está exenta de ser reescrita. Hasta ahora, la cronología de los primeros tiempos de Egipto se había basado en estimaciones aproximadas, que arrojaron datos imprecisos sobre los que se trazó una línea de tiempo que a día de hoy parece ser errónea. 

Un estudio publicado por la Royal Society revisa la cronología del Egipto de los faraones aplicando las técnicas de datación del carbono 14 y los modelos informáticos más avanzados. La investigación ha permitido situar cronológicamente con exactitud el Imperio Antiguo gracias al trabajo de un equipo de científicos que ha descubierto que el estado de Egipto se formó mucho más rápido de lo que previamente se indicaba. Los nuevos resultados revelan que la civilización egipcia tardó sólo unos 600 años en asentarse a lo largo del río Nilo y que el primer faraón de la dinastía egipcia, el rey Aha, accedió al trono entre el 3111 y el 3045 a.C., hasta 500 años más tarde de lo que se había estimado.
