Dating Pharaonic Egypt...again...

June 18th, 2010

scientists managed to date ancient plants left with human remains and in ancient Egyptian context, to different dates and periods formerly stated by History (from Greek sources).

Another proof that Science can aid History and that journalists should stop writing about Tutankhamun as 'the son of Akhenaton' as the body found in KV55 has not yet been proved to be Akhenaton's.


Egyptologists growing mould like some I know, say this was not a major advance...people like these should mingle more, research more, learn more foreign languages so they could be able to read articles published in international peer reviewed publications; and maybe attend some more international conferences, BEFORE letting their ignorance fly out of their mouth and land on national newspapers...

Thankfully, "Fortune favours the bold" said Terence (190-159 BC)... Mould-growing humans will not get far and repel other humans as the smell is not pleasant...
