The Hyksos didn't live in peace with Egyptians , no they imposed great amount of taxes on them , tortured them and raped Egyptians women.
Ahmosis wasn't an STD , Stan ! he was the Egyptian king who destroyed the Hyksos , so , HE WAS A GREAT KING .
Also ancient Egypt had black Kings and Queens they didn't have racism ♡ .
Love from Egypt ♡
You say that Moses and the Jew’s (or rather Israelites) were in Egypt ‘long before’ the great pyramids, but from what I understand of biblical history (and the debate around the exodus) the Israelites were in Egypt in either the New Kingdom under Pharaoh Ramesses II or were in the Middle Kingdom just before the ‘intermediate period’.
Is this an error on the part of this channel or do you have information that I haven’t come across before?

Ok so this is like... 6 years late but the direction in which a river flows has no bearing on the words "upstream" or "downstream". Upstream just means in the direction of the source of the river, and downstream means in the direction of its exit into the sea or lake. Downstream is in the direction the water flows, upstream is the direction from which the water flows.
In ancient Egypt, remembering the dead was the way to the afterlife. The name of the person was most important. To erase a name was basically to eradicate a person from the afterlife. So, Tut being as famous as he is, still kind of won.
I give up I can't watch these anymore... you try so hard to be cool. Also you speak way too fast about dates that no one can remember; failing to ancre them down with proper context and emphasis. Lots of nice graphics but the flow of information is too fast. The mind only remembers what it sees as important and you go through important dates without matching it in magnitude of graphics. For example your timeline graphic has dates in bubbles that are small to read, disappear quickly or shifted out of the way all the while you're talking fast about the next point. You don't leave enough time for the audience, one who has no knowledge, to properly organize and soak in the facts. It's almost as if you're just telling a story for your own enjoyment.
Would I be right in thinking that the Sumidic peoples from the Levant would have had composite bows rather than compound as John suggests ? Mike Duncan made that in the history of Rome and I suspect John may have too .
The Egyptians believed that their everlasting life was assured by the continued survival of their memory in the people’s of Egypt, thus the emphasis on mortuary monuments. So in that way, King Tut truly _did_ have the best afterlife.
While this is the established narrative of Egypt which you have to learn in order to get the marks to pass your exams, Egyptology and the study of ancient civilisations is changing very rapidly. Keep an open mind and realise that like most 'settled' sciences, there is a huge intrinsic resistance to new information and new theories in subjects like Egyptology and Archaeology. For one, the people writing the books have ego and academic reputations (and grants) resting on their established view. Anything new which forces revision or to repudiate established theories threatens that. Archaeology is notoriously resistant to any change.
Do your own research but its pretty clear the pyramids were not built by the Egyptians of the Old Kingdom. Nor is there a shred of evidence they were ever USED as 'tombs' for Pharaohs, let alone built for that sole purpose. There is no evidence the Sphinx was built in the Middle Kingdom or even Old Kingdom, nor the Pyramids built in the Old Kingdom. It is impossible to carbon date structures like this as there is no carbon to date. What they do is scratch their head, find some bone or leather fragments that happen to be at the site, and then state definitively: THIS must be the date that it was built. But this is totally illogical and the truth is THEY DO NOT KNOW.
Studying the geometry and physics of the pyramids you will see the incredible level of expertise, precision and profound understanding of of many aspects of science (that rivals or surpasses our knowledge today), that just isn't evident in the Egyptians of the Pharaoh age. Many other areas of science are beginning to push through and force the stick-in-the-mud archaeologists and Egyptologists to revise their thinking. Many such theories have lasted decades if not a century, without being seriously scrutinised.
Indeed many think that it would be IMPOSSIBLE for us to replicate the Pyramids today, even with unlimited manpower, our modern technology, and an unlimited budget - certainly not in the timeframes the Egyptologists claim ancient Egyptians did, with only the use of copper tools (again, there should be MILLIONS of tool fragments available, as copper tools would break down hundreds of time PER BLOCK as demonstrated by stonemasons today. But there are very few copper tools found). All methods of construction are also totally speculative, with no basis in evidence.
Indeed, the ancient Egyptians wrote about everything in their hieroglyphs, from lovemaking, to bathroom habits, to farming methods - yet NOT ONE mention anywhere of how they built the pyramids? or even that they DID build them? this is totally implausible considering the immensity, veneration and centrality of these monuments in their society.
Look deeper, consider opinions from all sides, and treat with suspicion ANYONE who tells you that any subject is 'settled'. Then on the balance of information, form your own view.
amun and ra were merged at the beginning of the new kingdom, after the expulsion of the hyksos, to get egypt to be more united and stuff, not in the middle kingdom. this was also a period where a lot of the ideology of divine kingship comes from (see thutmose III and hatshepsut).
King tut probably died in a battle that his father started and his mother was able to sign a truce. So basically his father started a war, then died. His wife asked for a truce and they agreed. Mother and sister in and out then tut comes in and the battle begins. He rides into battle with his troops and fell off his chariot. Then most historians agree that due to his injuries off seeing his bones. He mostly likely was shot in the leg area, also damage to the chest. Which caused this first of his reasons you listed ;)
As a white guy I have given it much thought that Ancient Egypt is not what you think it is. Great Britain is not what you think it is. The Bible is not what you think it is. The god of the bible is actually Satan in disguise who returned to the world to destroy gods people, it even says in Isaiah that he who rules the world is not god. Ever wondered what happened to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt? did they just disappear? Nope they emigrated to Europe. Queen Elizabeth of England is a descendant of Abraham who was one of the first pharaohs of Egypt(Amenhotep 1 was Abraham). The covenant in genesis was a promise by god to Abraham that he would be king of the world. In genesis when Satan deceived eve to eat the apple it meant to impregnate her. Cain & all the offspring of eve were fathered by Satan except Abel that's why he got slayed by Cain. Adam & eve are not who you think they are they were created by god & Satan came to destroy their garden(earth). Why do you think the British empire ruled the world? The first pharaohs were a hybrid of Lucifer the fallen angel also known as the shinning light bearer or Draco the albino also called Satan/Leviathan/reptoid who produced nephilims who built the pyramids of Egypt hence the out of Africa theory which is not a theory its a fact because yes the angels 'fell down' to that part of the garden(the Nile crescent which is Egypt) & mated with god's creation & their offspring came out of there. England means land of fallen angels & English is a magic form of fallen angel language used as mind control, what you are saying is basically opposite to what you are doing & what you are think in terms of the vibrations in the brain. The world map is upside down & everything is vice-versa really. If Egypt is in Africa then it must have been about blacks right? Wondered why the world is obsessed with glorifying ancient Egypt as Arabs not black Africans? Why do you think artifacts of ancient Egypt are kept as souvenirs in museums all over the world when blacks are despised? Because of Adam & eve. black Africans are the solely descendants of Abel through 1 of his sister amongst other sisters who was unnamed in the bible just as anything positive to do with African is never mentioned in contemporary history(did you even know Cain & Abel had many sisters?many scriptures omitted from the bible) anyway before Cain died he had impregnated one his sister which was incest nevertheless it was common practice at the time. Thats why blacks all look the same with black hair & black eyes while whites have different color hair like blond,ginger,brunette & eye colors like blue,green,hazel,turquoise & brown. As i said many scriptures have been left out of the bible including the book of pharaoh known as the book of Abraham & a book called the life of Adam & Eve amongst others.These books can be found in the apocrypha & Jewish scriptures. Anyway ever heard of the Faeroe Islands? The pharaohs are still ruling from there not as black African kings but as white kings descendants of the nephilim. Former Egyptian president Abdel Nasser has once said " they left here black & came back white" Anyway ever heard of slavery, racism, apartheid, discrimination, famine, wars, poverty, disease?is it the black curse of ham or mark of Cain? It looks like someone is doing their job, Queen Elizabeth is ruling the world by Israel from the old world (Europe) & through the new Israel(America) no wonder all these are white Ashkenazi Jewish/Zionist occupied developed 1st world nations? They all have high I.Q levels & most of them are rich & they are world leaders, entrepreneurs, Doctors, Bankers, philosophers, theologians & scientists. The white Ashkenazi invented everything (i cant even name 1 black african who invented anything) . Its sort of supernatural is it?well it is supernatural. White Ashkenazim 1st world nations are technologically advanced, ever wondered where they got it form? Well they got it from the fallen angels who knew gods secrets. Exactly thats where the white Ashkenazi got their wisdom & knowledge from. They lead super-power countries with nuclear weapons & space travel to visit their ancestor in Saturn in the new matrix of space(no longer the flat earth with firmament). To date no African Country has nuclear technology besides South Africa which is a British play ground for the Ashkenazim .White Ashkenazi Jews are different from us white Christians. We believe in Jesus Christ while they dont, they even killed him). The Ashkenazi or the illuminati are Egypts Pharaohs they left Africa to invent new matrix(Europe & America) of rich countries with no poverty, disease, hunger, famine & suffering as opposed to poor African countries who live on aid & hand outs & still have to pay white countries debt.what debt? of being mentally & economically enslaved. Now who's the true Hebrews now? There you have it
