Nefertiti’s Final Resting Place Continues to Polarize, Captivate – D-brief

Nefertiti could be interred in the deserted ruins of Tell el – Amarna, or have been included in the cache of ancient Egyptian royalty & noble mummies taken from the Valley of the Kings / Queens, or her remains could’ve had the worst possible fate for ancient Egyptian befall them – Destruction at the hands of those whom the monotheistic Pharaoh Akhenaten & his followers in the religion of the Aten ( Sun God, another aspect of Ra / Amun Ra ) fell out of favor with. I don’t have access to more than my imagination, but I would suspect that the Chief Wife ( There was no title such as ” Queen ” in Egyptian. ) of Akhenaten’s mummy was destroyed or perhaps because of the before – mentioned disfavor, she was unmummified & just left to the unforgiving desert. And the entire 18th dynasty section of the the King’s List was essentially erased at the sacred city of Abydos ( Abju / Abjdu ) effectively removing them from memory. That was the 2nd worst fate that could befall a Pharaonic Egyptian. Many carvings depicting Akhenaten & / or Nefertiti were heavily defaced, & their cartouches ( hieroglyphs enclosed in a protective oval ) erased by chisels.

Perhaps we’ll never know. The past of 3,000 years + ago is another world. Nefertiti – ” The Beautiful One Has Come ”

Is Nefertiti hidden in a chamber behind a wall in King Tutankhamen’s tomb? Is there a chamber? An intense debate heats up.

Tools May Have Been First Money

My first entry using my new machine. Using a touch – screen computer has been an exercise in patience & controlling heaps of irritation. 🙂 That being said, this story is a very interesting little find. Although it may have been a sight more helpful if you were a DIY kind of person or were the village handy – man / tinker type of person. Early tech as a form of currency – I definitely think Bob Vila would approve. Makes me wonder what kind of currency humanity will have in about 200 – 300 – something years. Maybe barter will make a big – time comeback.

Ancient humans traded tools between tribes and they gained social significance.

Butchered Mammoth Suggests Humans Lived in Siberia 45,000 Years Ago

Now I’ve got a sudden craving for the flesh of the woolly mammoth. 🙂 I seem to recall a story on the Discovery Channel back in the early 90’s where Russian paleontologists found an intact mammoth frozen in an ice – pack, but this guy is just a skeleton. Still, no telling WHAT we can learn from it about early human dietary habits. I’m certain that early Siberians ( Denisovans, perhaps ? ) WEREN’T vegetarians. & unless the climate was radically warmer, the mammoth & dinosaurs probably didn’t co – exist.

45,000 years – Don’t mention this to Young Earth Creationists….. 🙂

The slashed and punctured bones of a woolly mammoth suggest that humans lived in the far northern reaches of Siberia earlier than scientists had previously thought, a new study finds.
