Ancient Egypt was one of the earliest, longest-lasting and most influential civilizations in world history. They are known for incredible achievements in a whole range of fields, including art and architecture, engineering, medicine and statecraft.
The ancient Egyptian civilization has fascinated researchers and historians for years, and it seems that the further we look into their extensive history and connection with the rest of the planet, we find surprising facts that are not always backed up by mainstream scholars who maintain a linear view of ancient history.
The most mysterious and controversial site on the New South Wales Central Coast, known as the ‘Gosford Hieroglyphs’ is directly connected with history of ancient Egypt.
The glyphs site at Kariong features almost 300 engravings on two sandstone walls, which some believe are an example of an early form of Egyptian writing and have drawn widespread interest over the years.
In spite they have long been dismissed as fakes by authorities and academics since their discovery in the 1970s, there are still ongoing attempts to prove the theory they were carved by the ancient Egyptians.
Mohamed Ibrahim and Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan (who has studied ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs his entire life) worked with a group of people in order to translate the mysterious engravings. What was the result? Well, not only are the mysterious ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs in Australia authentic, the scribes accurately used several ancient hieroglyphs and ‘grammatical’ variations which, crucially, were not even documented in Egyptian hieroglyphic texts until 2012. The specific style of hieroglyphs used also provides a linguistic time-frame that places an Egyptian presence in Australia at least 2,500 years ago, while the translated text is even so detailed as to identify the ancient scribes, by name and occupation.
Many other researchers suggest that these archaic styles contain an early form of hieroglyphics and correlate with archaic Phoenician and Sumerian writing.
