Lorraine Evans gives us a fine view of some very stunning (but hypothetical) events from some 13 centuries before Christ; her development, while clear, has some peculiarities that keep the material more distant than necessary.
An example: Having established that the mythical "Scota" was based on the very historical Meritaten, eldest daughter of Akhenaten, Evans continues to call her Scota. It makes us wonder whether Evans trusts her own research. Nor at any point does Evans evoke what Meritaten's voyage to the British Isles might have meant in cultural or religious terms. If this voyage was real, it would make Meritaten one of the most remarkable royals of the ancient world, far eclipsing Nefertiti and Cleopatra.
That said, the book soars when it gives us just the facts, maam, and Evan masterfully crafts her case so that, even those of us who were a bit hostile to the idea at first, are now convinced that something like Evans' scenario must be true. No small feat.

I was recommended this book by a friend who had heard about the ground breaking research of Miss Evans from his University. I have to admit I was a sceptic when I first began, after all Egyptians coming to Britain..what an absurd thought! However, Miss Evans presents the evidence in such a clear and concise manner that, at the end, you truly believe there is a case to answer. From the ancient Egyptian palaces at Thebes, along the amber trade routes of old Europe to the Ferriby boats in Yorkshire, Miss Evans successfully takes you on a journey of true academic proportions.
Unlike other book of a similar ilk, Miss Evans transends a numbers of disciplines, from her obvious archaeological expertise, to the latest DNA testing from Ireland whilst managing not to befuddle the reader with science. Whatever your own beliefs, I thoroughly recommend that every bookshelf should have a copy of Kingdom of the Ark glued to it.

Format: Hardcover
Whether or not Meritaten escaped before the end of the Amarna Period (Ancient Egypt) does not affect the importance of this book which provides very strong evidence of Ancient Egyptian emigration to Europe and, eventually, to parts of Britain and Ireland.
The author is described as an Egyptologist but may not have endeared herself to others of her profession. Nevertheless it needs pointing out that academics live by their reputation and if they choose a "blind alley" they are liable to turn a "blind eye" to new evidence which contradicts their theories.
It is entirely plausible that highly placed Ancient Egyptians "saw trouble coming" and escaped. Egyptian boats were found near Hull. Faience in other British locations.
Are they YOUR distant relatives? Are you O blood group or does your DNA correlate with Tutankhamun's? Fascinating reading.

I think the author did well in reasearching this subject especially as there is so little to go on and most academics are not inclined to give of their true opinions for fear of ridicule by their peers and fellow colleagues. I first come across this train of thinking that the Egyptians sailed to Britain in the book by Keith Laidler called The Head of God. In it he mentions Princess Scoti, but more importantly and I am surprised that Lorrain Evans did not mention it, was the reference to the true Stone of Destiny i. e. the Gaythelos stone which was reputedly brought by Princess Scoti. this stone or throne would be a further link in the chain of evidence that was the main theme of this book. I wonder if the author knows of this, if so why did she not mention it as it would be further proof especially as it is supposedly inscribed.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Being British and having personally developed a system of Egyptian Alchemy healing, I was delighted to learn that there may be evidence for the British being directly descended from, not just any Egyptian Pharaoh, but, Akhenaton himself! Akhenaton being the monotheistic Pharaoh most linked to the roots of Christianity. My work was inspired by an indigenous oral tradition wisdom keeper, called Hakim Awayan, who lived close to the Sphinx until he died in 2008. I think he would have been really fascinated by the subject matter in this book.

I've been most impressed by the arguments presented in this book, opening many other avenues to follow up myself based on correlating Lorraine's hypotheses and Hakim's tutelage. I'd recommend anyone with an interest in Egyptian (particularly Khemitian philosophies which outline the alternative history maintained from the oral traditionalists) or ancient British history, especially pre-Bronze Age, to give this book a read with an open mind! Hakim's major message to me was a strong warning "don't be fooled by history as presented by mainstream historians since the written records will always be biased in favour of the attitudes prevalent at the time they were written. Archeologists also tend to interpret their findings in the light of current understanding." I found it extremely refreshing to find Lorraine willing to start with a clean slate and then see what she could piece together herself, much of which is from data not previously analysed in a meaningful way. Collectively her evidence is pretty compelling and I think yet more corroborative evidence will be uncovered...
