    There are chronologies (like David Rohl's) that propose to telescope Egyptian history by arguing that what were previously thought to be consecutive reigns were actually concurrent. Perhaps during some periods there were even three concurrent reigns in different territories. The lengths of the intermediate periods become hard to date with any precision. And this is important because most of the dating in ancient Israel is done by relating it back to Egyptian dating.

    Interesting stuff isnt it?

    It was a contemporary dynasty that ruled over parts of Upper Egypt for a relatively short time.

    This is more just filling out the Egyptian Dynasty history so we understand how Egypt evolved through history. Each discovery will include reference on how Egypt related to the world around Egypt over time.

    New Pharaonic tomb with remains uncovered

    The remains of a previously unknown pharaoh named Woseribre-Senebkay (or Seneb-Kay), who lived 3600 years ago, was discovered this month in his four-chambered tomb at Sohag, south of Abydos (roughly 500 km/310 mi south of Cairo) in southern Egypt.

    The tomb had been plundered so there were no grave goods but is nevertheless extremely important in that this find is the first hard proof of an independent Abydos Dynasty, contemporary with the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Dynasties during the Second Intermediate Period.

    The archaeologist in charge of the dig, Josef W. Wegner of the University of Pennsylvania, thinks that this discovery could lead to more royal discoveries in the area. He figures that 20 previously undiscovered pharaohs may lie near Senebkay's tomb and adds that "Where there are king’s tombs, there are also queen's tombs, and tombs of high officials of the royal court."


    Senebkay stood 1.78 meters (5'10") tall and died in his late 40s
