Hanslune: Are you Zahi Hawass?
If so aren't you supposed to be somewhere with your TV crew claiming someone else's find?
By the way you accused two people within a space of about five posts of being almost "racist", yet never disproved any of the statements they made.
Donkeys and horses have made a number of significant archaelogical discoveries in Egypt.
If you could please give me a list of discoveries by Egyptian archaeologists?
I couldn't find any.
The Giza Plateau has been officially declared a Military Zone. It is surrounded by a double system of massive wire fence/enclosures, with fortified machine gun posts which incidentally are aimed inward. Security is, shall we say, very tight. Terrorism & theives aside, why else such a plan?
I however didn't blame his boss as his boss isn't always in my face.
Hawas is the one out there, Im quite sure he's not under duress to be a egomaniac....
Also, I think ATS people will 'fringe dwell' anything.
I dont think that should be remarked upon so much, If its serious acedemic study, then there are boards for that, I dont want to scare anyone off learning or reading about Egyptology because they are worried they will appear 'fringe' or uneducated on the subject.
Hope you dont mind me saying that
But restricting research is another issue that needs to be resolved.

All excavations in Egypt were done and paid for by the west. Any discovery made by egyptians were when their donkeys fell into a hole.
As for the sites in Egypt - all the staff employed by the egyptian government to work at these sites are corrupt and would sell you a tour of anywhere.
