A short and all to brief summary of the middle kingdom. The middle kingdom was short but oh so sweet. So many interesting characters and intrigues! Amenemhet is my Favorite middle kingdom Pharaoh, mainly because of the cynical advice he gave to his son.....What can I say, I am a cynic! Hope your new years all started out well!!!

Piecing together the First Intermediate period

Posted December 26th, 2017 at 10:38 AM by Shotgunhistory



Seasons Greetings I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and just a lovely day in general if you do not partake. Below I have tried to make a brief but concise summary of the First Intermediate Period. Hard as that is with the limited evidence, All I had was speculation to help me, and I have added some speculations of my own. Hope you enjoy!

How the Pyramids were built

Posted December 18th, 2017 at 08:54 AM by Shotgunhistory





I am not a subscriber to the ancient aliens theory, at least not as it pertains to the Pyramids, but I dont dismiss people that have this view. To be honest I just think it is due to lack of information. You cant be angry with that. Anyway here is a video examining the Pyramids and the Old Kingdom, who built them. Looking back Sneferu seems to be someone that I would get on with. What do you think?

Pop culture and Egyptology

Made this video, which will be the first in a series on Ancient Egypt.




I realized that Ancient Egypt is still very much a part of our cultural fabric and that even if you think that you are ignorant, you know more than you think. Its Amazing!
