4 Mysteries From Ancient Egypt We Still Can't Figure Out

the Ancient Egyptians ruled a significant knob of the world for nearly times, and left behind a rich heritage of artarmature and tradition. But Ancient Egypt also left behind a many mystifications that archeologists and scholars still have not been suitable to breakindeed thousands of times latterlyThen are some of the enduring mystifications of Ancient Egypt.

1. What did ancient Egyptians look like

Despite the corpses, statues and drawings that the ancient Egyptians left before, there's still important contestation over just what, exactly, they looked like. One thing's for certain though — despite what you might believe about them given Hollywood's whitewashing of Egyptians, the residers of ancient Egypt were not white.

According to Slate, they were presumably a range of colors, and" neither white nor black" by our contemporary understandingsAncient Egypt was a racially different place, because the Nile River drew people from each over the region. Egyptian jottings don't suggest that the people of that period had a obsession with skin color. Those who adhered the kingspoke the language
and worshipped the proper gods were considered Egyptian."

2. How were the pyramids built?

The giant pyramids of ancient Egypt are another element of its heritage that has long puzzled experts. How on earth could a society without modern construction machinery transport the huge, heavy stones needed to build the giant pyramids? Wet sand may be part of the answer, according to recent research by physicists at the University of Amsterdam.

"It turns out that wetting the sand in the Egyptian desert can drastically reduce friction, meaning you only need half as many people to pull a sled on wet sand compared to dry sand," lead author Daniel Bonn told WordsSideKick.com. A picture Ancient frescoes also appear to depict Egyptians wetting sand as they pulled sleds carrying giant statues, further evidence that water may have been part of the laborious and complicated process of building the ancient pyramids.

3. How did King Tut die?

The young King Tutankhamun has fascinated historians since the discovery of his tomb in 1922, but details of his life — and his death at the age of 19 — remain a mystery. A long-standing theory that he died in a car accident appeared to be debunked when scans of his mummified body revealed he had a "partially bandaged foot" that would prevent him from standing alone, The Independent reported in 2014. .
The new study also found through genetic analysis that Tutankhamun's parents may have been siblings, and he may have "died from a genetic disease."

4. What's hidden inside the Great Pyramid of Khufu?

The Pyramid of Cheops, the largest of the three pyramids in Giza, may actually be hiding some secrets. Thermal scans of the Great Pyramid in 2015 revealed a "thermal anomaly" inside the structure, according to the Guardian, but it's unclear what that might mean.

A statement on the scans said the anomalies could mean many things: "Many hypotheses and possibilities could be proposed to explain this anomaly: a cavity behind the surface, internal airflow," reports the Guardian. There may even be a hidden tomb that has yet to be discovered, but nothing has been concluded from the project, which is expected to last until the end of 2016.
