She died at the approximate age of 50, with no official reason recorded, however medical analysis of the mummy shows very convincing evidence that she had advanced periodontal disease, osteoarthritis, was overweight, had diabetes & the cause of death is most likely malignant neoplastic disease of the bone. After her death, her son Thutmose III took control of the throne and towards the end of his reign is thought to have had a significant role in the inhalation of his mothers historical records as pharaoh. He did this in the most crude way possible that can still be seen today, he simply ordered her cartouches and images to be chiselled off the walls & her statues to be pulled down, defaced & buried under the sand. After Thutmose III came his son Amenhotep II who was also responsible for further destruction to Hatshepsut's name. It is not clear why this happened, we can only suspect the typical reasons of self promotion and resentment that he would have had against his mother for ruling. Amenhotep II was thought to have done this as well as trying to break the royal lineage to try and strengthen his own claim to the throne which was not very strong. He was also known to have intentionally not recorded the names of his queens and to have made redundant the roles & titles of important women.
The temple of Queen Hatshepsut, or Hatchepsut, was the first Ancient Egyptian temple we would walk into & even though a lot of it had already been renovated & large sections still remained in disrepair, it did not disappoint. She was the 5th pharaoh of the 18th dynasty & the 2nd confirmed female pharaoh. She was the chief wife of Thutmose the II & officially was a joint ruler with her child Thutmose III who ascended the throne after his father at the age of 2. She ruled during the years of 1479 to 1458 BC, creating much speculation within the early scholary circles that she was a joint ruler, today's egyptologist's have come to a generalised consensus that she was actually the only ruler and assumed the position as pharaoh. She is considered by many historians to be one of the 'first great women of history' a rather grand & aspiring title, I'm sure she would be very proud of. During her reign she was responsible for the erection of some grand monuments including her temple at Luxor as well as establishing vast international trade routes. She was successful in warfare very early in her reign, though after this Egypt was very peaceful, wealthy & prosperous under her long 20 year reign. She was truly special, but not exceptional as a female ruler of Egypt and pre dating her are many examples of female rulers and co-regents, with records as far back as the 1st dynasty. She did however claim the divine right to rule the country, a claim given to her by the god Amun. Very interestingly she is depicted in statues as a traditional male pharaoh wearing the headress, the fake beard & standing like a man, as well as herself in a more natural feminine position.

“Harmony is the flow of life. Everything strives for harmony, for balance…life is harmonious togetherness, the giving and the taking, of elements and powers being active in creation. By grasping and holding on we create blockage which in turn is leading to sickness and death as a result of error: Life supports only what furthers life…the universe lives by dynamic balance in easiness, harmony and love.”
“To live is to die a thousand deaths, but there is only one fire, one eternity.”
Painting: Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach (1851-1913): The Great Sphinx of Giza 1903, Italy, Capri
This painting was inspired by his personal acquaintance with the Egyptian pyramids and sculpture. In 1895 he set out on a study trip to Italy, and from there he continued to Egypt.
Quotes from The Kybalion, a hermetic texts said to contain the teachings of the sage Hermes Trismegistus. & Hymn of the Bennu Bird
The Tomb Of Pharaoh Merenptah
We walked through his tomb, again marvelling at the detail and ancient beauty, it was sad to learn that his mummy had been buried here but it was moved at some point. It was later found in 1898, with another 18 mummies, 13 of which were royalty, in the tomb of Amenhotep II, who was the great great grandfather of the well known King Tutenkhamun. Amenhotep's tomb was tomb number 35 to be found in the valley of the kings & was lavish & large, even by Egyptian royalty standards & for this reason became the hiding place for 18 mummies in an attempt to save & preserve their bodies while their own tombs were plundered by grave robbers. How the hell they managed to gain entry to tombs, move multiple giant slabs of granite door's & finally open the giant sarcophagus to get to the mummies, is unbelievable. But with a clever civilisation full of wealth, there is lot's to be gained & this creates clever thieves willing to risk it all, even the wrath of the gods in the afterlife.
It's a sad fact of ancient history that so much was destroyed, but there is hope that an estimated 70% of Ancient Egypt is still buried in the sand, yet to be discovered.

The term Rosetta Stone has been used idiomatically to represent an important clue to understanding something that is challenging or puzzling.
The name has also become used in various forms of #translation software.

The Rosetta Stone was the key to deciphering hieroglyphs because it is inscribed with three scripts – hieroglyphs, Demotic and Greek. When the Stone was discovered, nobody knew how to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, but scholars could still read Ancient Greek. English physicist Thomas Young was the first to show that some of the hieroglyphs on the Rosetta Stone wrote the sounds of a royal name – Ptolemy. French scholar Jean-François Champollion took things further and pieced together the alphabet of hieroglyphs used to write other names.

Inside the Holy of Holies, where in the Temple of Solomon stood the Ark of the Covenant, at Edfu was a grey granite naos shrine, four metres high, which would have contained the cult statue of Horus, with cartouches of Nectanebo II of the 30th Dynasty. The shrine therefore must have come from an earlier building. Texts on the wall describe the rituals that took place here, including the morning service when the high priest exposed, washed, fed and dressed the image of Horus, burning incense and reciting prayers to him.
In a chapel behind the sanctuary there is a low pedestal, also from an earlier structure, on which stands a reproduction of the barque of Horus – the Ark of Horus. Or could that be an Ark of the Covenant, as this was the ceremonial barge used to carry Horus’ statue during the processions? Indeed, one of the bynames of the temple complex of Edfu was the “chest of the son of Isis”. For researchers of lost civilisations, however, it is not the Temple of Solomon that intrigues them, but the so-called “Edfu Building Texts”. The Edfu Building Texts speak of the “First Time”, or Tep Zepi, which was the period from the first stirring of the High God in the Primeval Waters to the settling of Horus upon the throne and the redemption of Osiris by Horus.
They also relate that the region of Edfu was once inhabited by the so-called “Shemsu Hor”, or “Followers of Horus”. In Manetho’s List of Kings, these beings ruled after the gods themselves, but before the pharaohs. It are these predynastic people that are said have created the design for the Edfu and Denderah temple complexes, as they were said to have been built “according to a plan written in ancient writing upon a goatskin scroll from the time of the Companions of Horus”. Specifically, Edfu was built in according with a plan “dropped down from heaven to earth near the city of Memphis”.

The Tomb of Pharaoh Ramesses III
The first tomb we went into was that of King Ramesses III, which was the 11th tomb to be discovered in the valley. He is estimated to have ruled over Egypt during the New Kingdom from 1186 to 1155 BC and is thought to be the last monarch of the New Kingdom & the second ruler of the twentieth dynasty. He ruled for a long time & unfortunately was alive to see the decline of the Egyptian Kingdom from border invasions & internal political schemes. King Ramses III died in 1155 BC after he was assassinated by conspirators within his inner circle, including his secondary Queen Tiye, and their son, Prince Pentawere, who was found guilty at trial and took his own life. Researchers have done CT scans of Rameses' mummy & have discovered a serious wound in his neck that would have been done with a knife or another sharp object, consistent with having his throat slit. The wound would have served his oesophagus, trachea & jugulars, killing him nearly instantly. The scans show embalming material that has seeped down into the wound and bones, preserving the evidence. The scans also showed an amulet depicting Horus, that the embalmers inserted in the throat wound.

The Great Pyramid of Giza also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
The Great Sphinx of Giza or The Terrifying One; literally means Father of Dread, commonly referred to as the Sphinx of Giza or just the Sphinx, is a limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. The face of the Sphinx is generally believed to represent the Pharaoh Khafre.
