Unravelling the confusion of Egyptian chronology,
This review is from: Moses In The Hieroglyphs (Paperback)
This book to me represents an important milestone in understanding Egyptian chronology. I recommend it not because the authors are necessarily correct in every detail, but rather, the unique approach, that is, that ancient Khymric provides the most consistent and straight forward means of decyphering Hieroglyphics,and the results are both electrifying and an enormous challenge to conventional Egyptologists. This book adds to the argument begun in modern times by Immanuel Velikovsky, that the key to the past lies in a multi-disciplinary approach, in effect, looking for the logical answer over the convoluted one that often seems favoured by academia. As so often turns out to be the case, the real evidence is there all along. Simply by promoting this approach, this book deserves a wide readership, but offers much, much more!

I have been interested in the time line of Ancient Egypt linked into the Biblical timeline for some time; since David Rohl. It is clear that the lists of the kings for examples overlap and their are gaps, but the actuat length of the gap is disputed, from 300-1000 years. I tend to go for the former, as there is not enough evidence to stretch time by 1000 years. On the other hand some astronomers believe that the layout of the skies: the constallation of Orion; has pointed to the last time that the skies lined up with the pyramids was 10,000 years ago, and not 3000 years ago. So perhaps we should be stretching time even further?
I have read one or two books on the subject and while the idea that a Dark Age did not exist is possible, especially when we think that our own, so called Dark Age, was not as dark or as empty of science and literature and skills as some people believed, there simply is not enough evidence to say that the time period itself did not exist, just that we know little about it.
Unfortunately, the book Moses in the Hierglyths I cannot recommend, due to the fact that it is full of proof reading errors and spelling mistakes. You would think that if the authors believed the work to be this important that they would spend money to have it professionally produced and that they would have insisted on the proof readers doing a better job. My husband has just qualified as a professional proof reader and his ability well outshines that of the printers of this book. Correct the errors, then reprint, and more people may read it.
