The Mysteries of Egypt

Ancient Egypt is full of mysteries and methodologies. Many historians and archaeologists have explored the hidden gems of Egypt, admired the monuments and discovered Egypt in depth, or so they thought. Even after all this time, there are still a lot of unanswered questions and unexplained mysteries. Let’s take a look at some of the mysteries of Egypt.

Egypt

The unknown queen of Egypt

A tomb of a woman was discovered, who some say was ‘the wife of the king’, while other archaeologists believe that she was ‘the mother of the king’. 4500 years ago, this woman would have been one of the most powerful women in the world, however now nobody has any idea who she was.

Historians are just guessing that she might be the daughter of Queen Kehntakawess II, mother of Pharaoh Mekahur or wife of Pharaoh Neferefre. Whoever she was, she was extremely powerful.

The hidden chamber of the Great Pyramid

4500 years ago the greatest pyramid of all was built for Pharaoh Khufu. It was built with more than 2.3 million stone blocks and its height is 490 ft. However, surprisingly there are only three chambers inside. In the year 2017 a team claimed that there is a large hidden chamber inside the pyramid that was deliberately built to be inaccessible. The chamber has no pathways connected to it.
Whatever it is, it’s still not seen by anyone. So supposedly Pharaoh Khufu didn’t want anyone to get access to it.

Pyramids

The destroyed Pyramid

All the pyramids are standing still even after thousands of years except the Pyramid of Djedefre. Nobody entirely knows what happened to the pyramid. Some say Djedefre died before the completion of the pyramid that left it in ruins. Others say Romans took the stones leaving behind the ruined pyramid, while others believe that Egypt hated Djedefre so much that they destroyed the pyramid.

The disappearance of Queen Nefertiti

She was among the few women who ruled over Egypt but nobody has ever found her resting place. Archaeologists tried their best to search her tomb. In 2018, they were almost convinced that they had found her tomb but they were wrong.
Surprisingly there is no mention of her death in Egyptian history. Some believe she changed her name after becoming pharaoh while others say she was never a pharaoh at all.

Nefertiti

The mummy wrapped in a foreign book

In the year 1948, a man bought an ancient Egypt mummy from a shopkeeper. A few decades later when its bandages were removed, it was found out that the mummy was wrapped in something very unusual. It was wrapped in linen pages of a book.
The text of the pages was written in Etruscan. No one till date knows what the text says and why was it wrapped in it.
