Archaeologists discover 35 burial chambers in Sudan desert with links to Ancient Egypt

Archaeologists excavating a site in Sudan have discovered 35 pyramids revealing fascinating links between the bygone Kingdom of Kush that once existed there and ancient Egypt.

The pyramids, which date back around 2,000 years, are smaller than most Egyptian examples with the largest being 22 feet in width and the smallest, likely constructed for the burial of a child, being just 30 inches.

The site in Sedeinga, northern Sudan, was part of the ancient kingdom of Kush which shared a border with Egypt and, later on, the Roman Empire.

  1. “Dreadlocks story”
…..a film made to confuse:-
    Sad to see once again any achievement of Black African people
    being regarded as influenced by others.

    Rastafari wearing of locks was not influenced by the
    Indian indentured laborers of Jamaica.

    “Dreadlocks” has a long and widely distributed history with the
    African masses both at home and abroad.

    Locks from the standpoint of Ethiopia,
    from whence Rastafari spiritually hails,
    are grown and worn at time of war.
    The Bahitawi, or holy man, quite often, also wears locks.

    Downstream in Kenya the MauMau,
    in the war of independence against Britain wore locks.
    This also greatly contributed to Jamaicans
    adorning this ancient African tradition of locks.

    Many slaves were captives from west African
    where children in say Nigeria and Ghana will go locked until about aged 4.

    In the ancient world, many of the original Black Greek people wore locks,
    this can be seen on the so called Black pottery as well as various statues.
    It is worth noting that the earliest of the Greek gods are Black Africans and
    even Apollo, “King of the Gods”, can be seen wearing “Dreadlocks”.

    Long before the Greeks, sculptured works are available which show that
    the ancient African Egyptians were locked,
    as witnessed in the princes of Tanis.

    Locks spread worldwide anciently as can be attested to in them even being found amongst the original Australians.

    All the above mentioned is available visually,
    if any need to see images, I will provide them.

    Speaking of influence, it would be far more uplifting to show
    the African influence on India which itself a colony of the ancient Ethiopians,
    this would throw much needed light on the fact that
    many cultural traits are shared in both Asia and Africa.
