Pharaoah Senebkay


February 1, 2014

My friend, Sherif, is a long-time friend of Zahi Hawass, former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs. Sherif spends half his time in Egypt, the rest in Philadelphia, both considered home. Besides discussing the political climate in Egypt we often talk about the latest discoveries in the field of Archaeology.

I was pleased to hear that Zahi remains "dethroned" - like a fallen Pharaoh - no longer controlling archaeological expeditions in Egypt. He is not only unpopular with foreigners, but with Egyptians as well, particularly in the scientific community, spending much of his time writing, but no longer under house arrest. Scientific exploration continues under new leadership.

So here we go ... It seems there's a new Pharaoh in town - an interesting insert in the hologram of our reality. I wonder what its purpose is in the bigger scheme of things? In the land of myth and mystery, many believe answers will be found perhaps guided by the ancients themselves.




A previously unknown, yet potentially very important, ancient Egyptian kingdom has been discovered by archaeologists working in the Nile Valley. Excavations at Abydos, 70 miles north-west of Egypt's famous Valley of the Kings, have revealed the existence of an entire royal cemetery, now believed to be the final resting place of up to 16 mysterious pharaohs - an entire dynasty whose existence was up till now virtually unknown to the Egyptological world. Archaeologists in Egypt believe they have discovered the remains
of Pharaoah Senebkay, a previously unknown pharaoh who reigned more than 3,600 years ago. His name means 'my soul is healthy'.

As new information comes to light, they expect to begin to unravel one of the key geo-political mysteries of the ancient world - how exactly did Egypt's famous New Kingdom come to be established after some 150 years of disunity and partial foreign occupation. The north of Egypt had been occupied by peoples from what are now Syria, Lebanon and Israel. The excavators now realize that events leading up to the creation of the New Kingdom (the Egyptian state associated with famous pharaohs like Ramesses and Tutankhamun) probably somehow involved the lost kingdom and its dynasty and would therefore have been even more complex than previously thought.
