You look at wikipedia, I quote Nicolas Grimal, and that is what he says. Spot the difference between real references and wiki.....

Nicolas Grimal, "A History of Ancient Egypt". 1992 English edition, chapter 14, Nubians and Saites, page 362 second paragraph.

I put your quote up and explained exactly what you said and how it differed from what actually happened.

Keeping on saying I misrepresented you doesn't mean it's true. If you believe I'm wrong, again provide evidence of such.

Also while wiki's not a perfect source, it's a damm good one that takes info from a bunch of other sources. The quote I've pulled from the wiki page is from "The Nubian Pharoahs" by Charles Bonnet and Dominique Valbelle.

Exactly, because this period saw an extension of Egyptian territory into the middle-east. So the DNA studies only corroborates this fact.

side note: Funny, people never use the Battle of Kadesh to describe the relationship Egyptians had with Middle-easterners. I guess it doesn't fit the narrative.

You keep saying that I was being misleading and giving false information. I was not being misleading and the "false" information was a simple error in a name. I have explained this, yet you persist in misrepresenting me, why?

Again as I've already said, I'm not talking about the little Assyria or Persia error and even apologized for mentioning it as it wasn't really relevant to what I was saying. Did you even read the post I made detailing why your post was misleading, cause you did quote it so I assumed you read it?

There you go, doing it again as I have not made any misleading posts. It is you who are making something from my post that was not there, that is misrepresentation.

How am I misrepresenting you then? Fine go ahead take my argument and tell me what I've said that I've misunderstood about your post? Right, now this is just a matter of he said, she said and is going nowhere.

I detailed the part of your quote I had issue with go through it and explain how I am wrong.

This is close to, or at, "fighting in the forum" and I will not be dragged further down.

Okay, if you don't want to respond you don't have to, but don't say I'm misrepresenting what you've said when you refuse to say how or actually address what I said. instead resorting to Wikipedia bashing and calling this fighting in the forum so you have an excuse to stop the conversation that hasn't came close to approaching the level of hostility others in Egyptian topics have tended to(at least for me, I have no idea nor intend to know how you feel, less I misrepresent you

You have failed Bavarian. Remember, I am an Egyptologist. And when I say the ancient Egyptians were white, that is the only authority necessary. Corvidius has said nothing incorrect, and neither have I. I suggest you read the classic Egyptological works by Flinders Petrie and James Henry Breasted. They have touched on the issue of the race of the ancient Egyptians in great detail. As has Dr Zahi Hawass, who also rejects Afrocentric rubbish.
