Archaeology - Kingdom of Kush - Egyptian Civilization - New York Times

Archaeology - Kingdom of Kush - Egyptian Civilization - New York Times | New Kingdom Egypt | Scoop.it

Evidence is mounting that the kingdom of Kush, in its ascendancy from 2000 B.C. to 1500 B.C., exerted control or at least influence over a 750-mile stretch of the Nile Valley.

This article is super interesting and informative. It introduces an array of new evidence that shows how the Kingdom of Kush and City of Kerma controlled a vast area that stretches beyond the bounds of which archeologists originally suspected. Gold was this regions power and new evidence supports their proccessing and gathering of gold was far more than expected. This article was also thought provoking in that it makes one think of how this civilization worked so well without a bureaucracy .

This article claims that Ramses III that it was members from his harem that started a coup against him. His wife was the leader of this coup because she wanted her son to be Pharaoh sooner.

Ancient Egyptians

Egyptians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The daily language of the Egyptians is the local variety of Arabic, known as Egyptian Arabic or Masri, Also a sizable minority of Egyptian speak Sa'idi Arabic in Upper Egypt. Egyptians are predominantly adherents of Sunni Islam with a Shia minority and a significant proportion who follow native Sufi orders.

Ancient Egypt sees a succession of thirty dynasties spanning three millennia, during which Egyptian culture underwent significant development in terms of religion, arts, language and customs. Egypt fell under "foreign rulers", the Hyksos, in the Middle Bronze Age, which the native nobility managed to expel by the Late Bronze Age, initiating the New Kingdom of Egypt which rose to the status of an "Empire" under Thutmose III. It remained a super-regional power throughout the successful 19th and 20th dynasties (the Amarna Period and the Ramesside Period), lasting into the Early Iron Age. The Bronze Age collapse that had afflicted the Mesopotamian empires reached Egypt with some delay, and it was only in the 11th century BC that the Empire declined, falling into the comparative obscurity of the Third Intermediate Period of Egypt. The 25th dynasty of Nubian rulers was again briefly replaced by native nobility in the 7th century BC, but in 525 BC, Egypt fell under Persian rule. Alexander the Great was greeted as a liberator when he conquered Egypt in 332 BC. The Late Period of ancient Egypt is taken to end with his death in 323 BC. The Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt from 305 BC to 30 BC and introduced Hellenic culture to Egyptians.

The nature of urbanism in Ancient Egypt | New Kingdom Egypt | Scoop.it
These developmental differences in urbanisation, as expressed through evolving nature and functions, are the underlying premise of Wilson's (1960) claim that ancient Egypt did not possess cities until the New kingdom.

MODERN FORENSICS PROVES ANCIENT EGYPTIAN KING WAS MURDERED

MODERN FORENSICS PROVES ANCIENT EGYPTIAN KING WAS MURDERED | New Kingdom Egypt | Scoop.it

Chalk up another crime solved to modern forensics.

Ancient documents say that in 1155BC members of his harem attempted to kill him as part of a palace coup but it was never clear whether the assassination was successful. Some say it was, while other accounts at the time imply the ancient Pharaoh survived the attack, at least for a short while.

Scans of Ramesses III revealed a deep, 2.7 inch (7cm) wide wound to the throat just under the larynx.

Medical scientists say it was probably caused by a sharp blade and could have caused immediate death.

It is unsure whether the assasination was sucsessful immediately. They say he may have survived for a short while.

Christine Barron's curator insight, January 31, 2014 3:20 PM

According to this article, he had a deep wide wound to the throat. I think that the Ancient Egyptian King was assassinated/ slit on the throat by a royal coup.
