The professor explores one of Saqqara's last pyramid complexes to illustrate how Ancient Egypt's `Pyramid Age' came to an end. A worsening climate combined with political upheaval, famine and economic difficulties to plunge the state into a dark era of civil war, with the land dividing into smaller city-states headed by ambitious small-town leaders. In an obscure tomb in Thebes, she uncovers the stories of warriors who fought in the bloody battle that would eventually lead to Egypt's reunification, and reveals how settlers known as the `Hyksos' tried to infiltrate the fledgling nation's government to seize the throne.

  • Perhaps one of the reasons the Egyptians stopped building pyramids was simply due to escalating costs.

    Robert BolstadRobert Bolstadپیش 4 روز
  • They were not the builders of the great pyramids, they just copied after them! They found the big ones already being built, probably tens of thousands of years ago. They were just their restorers! And they gave them a purpose, a use and who could be worthy of such a construction than the most powerful man-god in the state, the pharaoh; that's it. I suspect they were being built by other humanoid species, maybe still homosapines, but long time ago, when humanity was probabily again on a very high tehnological level, similar to ours today, but yet different and maybe, even looking a little "magic" compared to our perception and how we perceive things in 2021

  • This woman is one of the well paid gatekeepers for the worldwide accepted historical narrative. It's rather telling for the money behind her, that each time another historical video on YT ends, one of her presentations is the most likely to follow. I have watched her stand besides one of the impressive granite boxes of Serepeum and talk about a mummified bull without any physical evidence of such a thing ever found. At the same time she totally ignores the blatant more primitive carvings on the outside of the box. Such blindness makes her a professional manipulator.

Two strikes and the blade would have been useless, nevermind the fact the whatever the ancient egyptians built, they put hieroglyphs EVERYWHERE. Yet nothing in the great pyramid? Get your head out of the sand!!! It ain't aliens though.

  • Did anybody ever ask himself why those pyramids at Giza were built? Not to host the body of an unimportant pharaoh but to save knowledge. They were built by a high educated and skilled Previous Civilization that knew that they would vanish because of a recurring, thus predictable natural disaster. They made the Great Pyramid as a message from them to us. In the pyramid their history must have been recorded. And they may have left interesting knowledge for us. But everything is stolen thousands of years ago. Later pharaos, leading a less skilled civilization, tried to copy this concept because it would make a great burrial site for them. But soon they realized that they were no longer capable to make such a construction. That recurring disaster is caused by the ninth planet of our solar system, also known as Nibiru. That planet is known for thousands of years. We find abundant and convincing evidence for the crossing of this planet 9 and the cycle of civilizations that is the effect of the disasters. To learn more about the cycle of civilizations and its timeline, recurring floods and ancient high tech, read the e-book: Planet 9 = Nibiru. You can read it nicely on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Just search for: invisible nibiru 9

A nice, summery type parasol would also be suitable. I believe that black attracts 'more' heat?! And if you are concerned about your weight, stop punishing yourself. Most of all of us, male & female have a few extra pounds...so what! You're a professor my dear, and that is a very respectable achievement! By the way, I'm not a clothes designer or even remotely connected to that. I'm a 77-year-old man, Canadian, and I suppose feel younger than that. Er..., most of the time! All the best, Erik

Seriously? How can pretend to be educated enough to make a documentary you’re not even educated in?

  • Why did the Egyptians stop building pyramids? Because My Israelite people were liberated from Egypt and set out to their promised land. This set in motion the end of the age of worshipping the pagan sun and moon gods of Nimrod's descendant nations which became Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, Aztec, Miyan, many of the Arab cultures, among others. This is also why we see pyramids around the world dating to 3-6,000 years ago. When Babel was destroyed, the people were scattered across the globe. With them, they took their pagan worship of the sun and moon gods, and their building of pyramids to house them. All going back to the original pyramid of Babel destroyed by God. They were simply building what they knew. In time, Monotheism took over, whether through Judaism, Christianity, or Islam, and this practice of building a tower to and for, your gods ended.

  • Ancient Egypt reached the same that all groups of people eventually come to reach, God’s or God. Seems to me that, it’s unavoidable, maybe even fixed, and any lack of it’s upkeep, leads to the groups break up. The stronger and longer control of religion the governance of the group has, correlates with the growth, power and longevity of the groups. Amazing is that we have gotten this far.
