A CHARIOT and funeral bed belonging to ancient Egypt's boy-king Tutankhamun were safely moved yesterday across Cairo to a new museum that Egypt hopes will lure back wary tourists.

I've read about that new museum that is in the works and from what I've seen, its somewhere I'd really like to spend a month or two or more.

Did you know that the oldest book in the world comes from 3550 BCE in the 5th dynasty of these ancient people of what we know as Egypt? Its been surmised that the actual content may be a lot older but these papyri were used as kind of a moral instruction on how to live one's life as we would find today in a Sunday school class or a code of ethics.

Its amazing to read and know that these instructions far precede not only the Old Testament but also Babylon's Code of Hammurabi.

It is available for reading in full at this website:

It's old. But certainly not that old. 3550 bce predates the dynastic era, not alone the fifth dynasty. You are correct though, the book dates to the 5th dynasty. You are just off by a thousand years.

The man who is said to have written it was vizier to the second last ruler of the fifth dynasty, Dyjedkare. He was ruler in 2414-2375. The script would have been written some where around then.

Was about time the Museum was finished and ready to receive the splendours of ancient Egypt.When I visited the site of the new Museum 9 years ago I already thought oh well,that won't be too long before it opens...But then that proved wrong as Egypt had to deal with some change and violence over the years putting works on hold several times.

The venue is beautifull,impressive,overlooking the Pyramids from the hill,
and one is overcome with the intense sensation that on and under this sand lies a massive remnant of a time that saw a much more civilised world then the one we crawl around on these days.

As for tourists,they'll have to wipe out some sort of trash that is currently messing up on Egypt's soil,and only then tourists will flock down safely on this dusty but incredibly mysterious city again.

Thank you, Lucien, for putting my thoughts into words much more eloquently than I could and I totally agree.

One thing I am finding out through all the information I've been inhaling over the past decades in regards to these ancient peoples is that, unlike our current materialistic and physically absorbed societies, day to day life was much more centered around their spiritual lives and a moral way of living their lives.

These people had an extensive wealth of knowledge some of which we're just rediscovering today. One of the biggest crimes against humanity I think was the burning of the library at Alexandria. If only we could read those ancient scrolls today we probably would have a totally different outlook on this ancient land.

Zahi Hawass has since backed off from the claim a bit. He now says there "may not" be anything there and that excavations will need to be done at a future date.

Thank you for the update Laura. I always like Zahi Hawass for he was such a strong man when he was the head of the Antiquities Dept. He worked very hard to keep the artifacts in Egypt where they belong. There has always been lots of criticism about him yet he really protected the ancient history of his home land and for that I give him tons of credit. In reading about this culture and the history, I see Zahi Hawass as one of the pharaoh's of the past working to protect his kingdom.

Let's hope that they don't take years to start doing something that can be done now......

If you get any new info I would really appreciate hearing it, this is one of my favorite reading materials.

Thank you Eya for the news,

This is such thrilling news and just fabulous that there is a new discovery in ancient Egypt. Being someone who is an amateur Egyptologist any news of a discovery brings forth new info about the ancient world to light and the more we can learn from them.

Ditto on what M. Payton said!

The more that is found, the more of an understanding of what these people that lived in very ancient times we have.

As Sarah Parcak, an American archaeologist says, "Less than 1 percent of ancient Egypt has been discovered and excavated. With population pressures, urbanization, and modernization encroaching, we're in a race against time."

Thank you Eya, great article and very interesting. I remember the treasures of King Tut back in 1970 sometime as I lived in Chicago then and had the opportunity to see the exhibit 3 times. What a thrill it was to see and wish I could go to Egypt and see the wonders of the ancient world....someday!

If there was such a throne, it would have been something that has at least been linked to by myths and legends. As the Great Pyramid was not ever used as a tomb, there is no reason to think that any kind of a throne would be in existence somewhere in there. The Great Pyramid and is two companions at Giza remain a huge source of study and is one I'm vastly interested in.

The only reference that may be attributed to a meteorite would be the much honored Ben-Ben Stone which was housed in the sun temple located in the City of Heliopolis, dedicated to the solar deity Ra
