nine strange discoveries from ancient Egypt welcome to throwback Thursdays number nine twelve miles south of Cairo a pyramid was discovered that was estimated to be 4,390 experts thought the structure might have belonged to Queen Sarah shet the mother of King TD who founded the sixth dynasty of Egypt's Old Kingdom archaeologists still had to explore the burial chamber and study inscriptions before they could know for sure they said it was common to find statues or tombs in the area but to find a pyramid that was strange indeed that was the 118th pyramid discovered in Egypt number right the wooden remains of a boat some 4,500 years old were discovered south of Cairo near the abusive pyramids archeologists believe it was a funerary boat that likely belonged to a prominent member of society members of the research team were cleaning an ancient tomb when they found the 59 foot boat lying on a bed of stones and covered in sand such boats were usually reserved for the royal family and used in their funeral rites the owner of this boat is still unidentified but he probably wasn't a member of the royal family according to experts more likely the owner was considered elite and had strong ties to the reigning Pharaoh number seven hands-off the first physical evidence of a gruesome practice ancient warriors used some 3,600 years ago was discovered in the ancient city of avarice in Egypt archaeologists dug up four pits that contained 16 large male right hands the hands were thought to have been chopped off the arms of defeated enemies after vanquishing an enemy the victorious fighter would slice off his opponent's right hand as a way of removing his physical strength the cut off hands would be presented in exchange for gold two of the hands were found separately in two pits located in what is thought to be a throne room the remaining 14 hands were discovered in an outer section of the palace in two other pits believed to have been built at a later time it's known if the hands belong to Egyptians or enemies they fought in the region number six a discovery made in 2011 confirmed that heart disease isn't a health problem reserved for modern society an Egyptian princess was found to have clogged arteries and she lived over 3,500 years ago researchers used computer scans to examine 52 mummies in Egypt and the u.s. among the mummies that still possessed heart tissue 44 had chunks of calcium clogging the arteries estimated to be in her 40s at the time the princess lived in present-day Luxor between 1540 and 1550 BC and she's the oldest mummy found to date with heart disease varying stages of heart disease and artery problems were evident in 43 younger mummies experts think the disease could be partly related to the high amount of fat in the diet of the Pharaohs and other Egyptian royalty number five the ancient Egyptians were famous from mummifying the dead yes we all know that but some evidence surfaced in 2014 that suggests they were practicing that art some 1500 years earlier than previously believed meaning mummification was practiced around 6500 years ago traditional theories regarding ancient Egyptian mummification stated that the action of the hot arid desert sands caused the bodies to dry naturally in the time period between 4500 and 3100 BC but when researchers tested shrouds used to wrap bodies found at most a Jeddah and Bharati prehistoric burial grounds in the Nile Valley they discovered traces of embalming agents that included a pine resin animal fats plant extracts and natural petroleum ingredients found in a similar recipe used for the mummification of Pharaohs some 3,000 years later interestingly the textile sample was originally collected in the 1930s and is held in England's Bolton museum number four pyramid paradoxes exactly how the pyramids were built is a mystery that has stood the test of time now researchers are hoping to solve that pyramid paradox with the help of cosmic rise earlier in 2016 an archeological research project called scan pyramids was launched the project uses 3d scans infrared thermography and cosmic ray detectors to examine for famed pyramids including the Great Pyramid of Giza the tallest of the monuments researchers from Egypt France Canada and Japan also plan on using the non-invasive technology to examine King Tut's tomb in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor the researchers are also on the lookout for Queen Nefertiti's burial site high-resolution pictures previously taken of King Tut's tomb indicated there might be hidden chambers there leading to theories that Queen Nefertiti's tomb might be located there also but radar scans later conducted by the National Geographic Society indicated that no hidden chambers were located there along with the mystery of how the pyramids were built it seems the location of Nefertiti's burial chamber is yet to be discovered number three tattoo you seems those ancient Egyptians were ahead of the time in certain ways if you thought tattoos was something that started in the modern age well consider this archaeologists discovered a 3,000 year old Egyptian mummy adorned with ornate tattoos the preserved body of the woman was found in an ancient village called Deir el-medina located close to the Valley of the Kings although the recovered remains are only comprised of a torso over 30 distinctive tattoos were detected tattoos depicting cows baboons lotus blossoms and watchit eyes were stretched across the arms hips and neck while tattoos have been found on Egyptian mummies they usually patterns of dots and dashes now these are the first tattoos found that depict actual creatures and objects while 3,000 year old tattoos are impressive they're not the oldest ever discovered that honor goes to utt see a natural mummy found Austrian Alps in 1991 that Iceman had 61 tattoos and is thought to have died around 30 250 BC number two ancient pests modern-day dogs are often plagued with parasites and apparently this is not a new problem for canines turns out that tiny parasites like the louse fly and common Brown tick were pestering pooches ages ago in Egypt as well during expeditions in 2010 and 2011 archaeologists discovered hundreds of mummified dogs at the excavation site of L dere evidence of the parasites was found in the coat and right ear of a mummified puppy and has thought that diseases carried by the pests may have led to the pups death the presence of blood sucking parasites was suspected in ancient times but this is the first time that the facts have been proven archaeologically dogs were commonly mummified by ancient Egyptians and were often used as offerings to the god Anubis and weapon number one more than 1700 mummies have been excavated at an ancient Cemetery in pham Egypt since its discovery 30 years ago well that is a massive amount of mummies that may only be the beginning some experts speculate there could be over a million human bodies contained in the cemetery others feel that's an inflated number but the desert necropolis does cover more than 300 acres and just thought to be around 1500 years old bodies have been found buried up to 75 feet deep and shafts cut into limestone rock scientists are intrigued by the large number of bodies and where they may have come from the mummified remains seem to have been ordinary citizens buried in mass graves as opposed to royalty or other elite figures also baffling is the range of mummies found at the site some seem to be clustered by hair color with blonde haired ones in one section and those with red hair in another other excavations revealed a parent families buried together even the remains of a man who stood over 7 feet tall have been found there so far scientists are still piecing together this ancient puzzle do you think a million mummies can really be buried there

  1. They arguing Egyptians are white but whats that on the wall? Why are white people never drawn on walls? Even the mexicans and native indians have drawning in their areas and non are white. Just wondering.

  2. To all you white people who try and claim that ancient Egyptians were not black. Take a look at the full head of hair of the Egyptian PRINCESS at 2:27.This is what the Bible means when it is says had hair like WOOL!

  3. odd how much like a zigerot from Babelon ? https://gizmodo.com/deciphered-ancient-tablet-reveals-babylonians-mastery-o-1798426017 Genesis 11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.

    3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

    5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

    8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

  4. I love how everything
    " archaeologist: find is under 6000 years old. What a bunch of fake and liars.

  5. @ 5 mins, "high resolution scans…might be a room".
    Might be?
    Not very "high resolution" I guess.

  6. This might not be necessarily ancestry family lineage but really dig this stuff. I may have but of fam connection somehow.

  7. Actually really are no inscriptions that represent just how the pyramids in Giza were built. It has been said that it took 30 years to nuild the Great Pyramid. In order for over 10 million blocks to be laid to build it they would have to be cut anx laid precisely in place about ever 2 minutes. That is impossible with the tools they had at yhe time. I have been inside the Great Pyramid. I have also been to the museum in Cairo. If they usef bronze chisels they would have found thousands of them, yet there are only about a dozen of them on display. The way those blocks are cut would require diamond cutters and dare I say it laser cutters to cut them.

  8. The stones must had rest to place every 6th minutes to have donn it on 25 years,i dont think they would made that only use of hands,rope and other wood materials, maybe antigravity is not so hitech and Atlantians was helping this people's long long ago.the the comet came and made havoc on earth Egyptian people build this powerplants/cosmic doorbell/phone, but atlantis was destroyed big time but they hath antigravity and diamond/laser cutting tools not this Hi-Tech now in the day's but lifting and cutting tools, maybe the tools was big and strange. We don't know but the history don't ad up. And it was tsunamis for ca. 3 weeks and the hole Giza plato have scars and other things that shows catastrophic destroying of stones and monument's from water and great heat so i just say they knew a little too much about our cosmos even more than us, I THINK THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT AND INTERESTING AND WE NEED MORE OF INTERESTED PEOPLE'S IN OLD STRANGE HISTORY,NOT MAINSTREAM MEDIA 👹

  9. Why is it always that these Pyramids, Temples, now a boat, no older than 6-7 thousand years old, mind control? 3600yrs old? This is what bugs me 5000yrs old again. We know for a fact us as humans who have opened our minds, know that life is so, so much older than we keep getting told. Why the fuck won't they let us know the truth? Who is in control, why won't they want us to be in awe that life is extremely important to us and we should be privileged to know off our ancestral lineage. Excuse me if I've repeated myself. I just want to know the truth.

  10. Nope, the heart disease is caused by grains, not fat. There are numerous cultures that eat LOTS of fat and even only meat, but no grains, and they have no heart disease.

  11. go and educate yourself in the psychical,and psychological aspects of Egypt many strange thing wil be solved

  12. I wouldn't take anything for certain that the Egyptian tell us. They still haven't admitted that the great sphinx is rain/water weathered and have banned TV from putting forth the evidence that was supported by over two hundred Geologist and ….

  13. And a video of Neopolian's army men knocking out the Nubian features of pharaohs, such as noses and lips??

  14. Could you do a video on Hattusha and Buntrint and make their connections to the ancient Egypt..

  15. Heart disease from rich foods in the rulers of the cities named Avarice and Luxori.., no surprises here

  16. ppl still belive that high amount of fat in diet is the main reason we have heart problems?????ONCE FOR ALL IS IS BECAUSE OF SUGAR NOT FAT,and inactivity ofc.

  17. I don't get why that last one is strange or unusual. Let's examine the facts. A whole bunch of bodies ranging in age, shape, size and color. All in one area. Even families buried together. Doesn't that sound like something we have today? I don't know… what's it called??… oh yeah! a CEMETERY. dumbasses.

  18. Check out the hat the warrior was wearing in the picture, about 1.50 in, those hats have a hidden/obscure meaning and/or who the artist was.
