Egypt reopens the step pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara

The Step pyramid : Egyptian Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouly and other officials were on hand this week as the Djoser Pyramid was reopened following its restoration. The Saqqara necropolis, with its antiquities and tombs dating to the most ancient periods of Egyptian history, is an open-air museum. The necropolis also includes the Serpeum, where the Apis Bulls were buried. The Djoser Pyramid, located near the city of Memphis, is the oldest large-scale stone building in the world. The Step Pyramid is the highlight of Saqqara’s monuments. It’s the oldest monumental stone building in history and Egypt’s oldest pyramid.

Amenhotep II

After the pharaoh warrior Thutmose III, we now follow the hierarchical succession to speak of his successor, his son Amenhotep II who, as we have seen, reigned, in co-operation with his father for two years and four months. On the death of his father he became the seventh pharaoh of the XVIII Egyptian dynasty. Amenhotep II, (Amenophis in Greek), was the son of Merira Hatshepsut (not to be confused with the pharaoh woman), a minor wife of Thutmosi III. From the Great Royal Bride, Satiath, Amenemhat was born but died at a young age. Physically gifted, Amenhotep II, like his father, excelled in sporting activities, archery, running, horse riding as well as being an expert rower. Following in the footsteps of his father Amenhotep II he pursued the same imperialist policy, accentuating its...

Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid confirmed by New Scan 2019

Hidden Chamber in Great pyramid Two years ago a big discovery in the Great Pyramid was announced in a paper in Nature: “a large void” (at least 30m/100ft in length) above the Grand Gallery. The find constituted “the first major inner structure found in the Great Pyramid since the 19th century”.

Senemnut

Senenmut

Senemnut Senenmut a man of the street, (as they say), son of a certain Ramose and Hatnefer (also called sympathetically Titutiu), did not come from the entourage of the Egyptian nobility. Originally from Upper Egypt, near the first cataract of the Nile, he came to Ermonthis following his family where he settled. Still young he participated in the first military campaigns where he proved to be very valiant, in recognition he was awarded the “Menefert” bracelet (the one who makes beautiful). By now fully included in the Pharaonic court, Senemnut and Hapuseneb, on the death of Thutmose II, unconditionally supported the accession of Hatshepsut, first as regent and then as a fully sovereign. Hatshepsut expressed his gratitude towards the two and did not abhor in granting them...
