Pyramids mystical temple Anubis.jpeg

Alternative Egypt

Ancient Origins - Online magazine exploring the origins of civilisation.

Independent Researchers

Robert Bauval - proposes that the Pyramids at Giza are laid out in the pattern of the belt of Orion and were therefore built much earlier than currently accepted

Graham Hancock - independent researcher of several alternative history books.

Ian Onvlee - proposes a revision of the Egyptian Chronology based on Radio Carbon dating.

David Rohl - Author of a Test of Time, an alternative chronology for Egypt

Robert Schoch- proposes that the sphinx is weathered by heavy and sustained rainfall and is therefore much older than currently accepted by Egyptologists.

Siefert & Lemke - propose a recognisable pattern for identifying cosmic impact events in climate anomalies. Their 8 part study of the effect of cosmic impact events on human civilisation since 8000 BC is interesting reading, especially the paper on the 4.2 Kilo year event, the destruction of Akkad and the dating of the Biblical Flood.

Jack Stornoway Broken Timelines series proposes a radically different chronology for Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Robert K G Temple - author of the Sirius Mystery and the Sphinx Mystery
