I think this is good news !

As I understand Dr. Zawi Hawass has always defended our current ideas of human history and so even forbid researching any for any new evidence that could proof our current idea wrong.

I'm sorry to say my only source is in Dutch and they say they can not reveal their 3 separate sources. But I have not seen anything from them yet which could let me to believe they are lying.

Now let's hope the next doctor will be a little more of a true science sceptic.
Let him question our old knowledge.

I think that it could be a good thing.

At the very least, a change in power would cause some movement of SOME kind over there.

Might be a few things can creep through the cracks and out into the open, finally.

Also to note...

heritage-key.com...


That article shows him talking about retiring this year, as mandated by law over there.


So, could be tentatively confirmed.

Thank god, hopefully now some research that may not agree with his views will be allowed

YAY at last


But to be honest, I don't think they would allow anyone to be in charge who is going to "Spill the beans" or look at objectively...


They have their story and they're sticking to it :shk:

The article I read told about many of his circle were happy because he stopped them from researching their more out of the box ideas.
Also the Bosnie piramide is told to be bigger and older. Egypt has to make a new discovery to stay at the top of their leage.

Starred you all


Hawass will not be missed

Opportunities missed and buried under Hawass' 'rule' are, of course, another thing altogether

I heard about the Bosnian Pyramid and such. I've seen some pics of it and until they actually do major excavation it's 50/50 to if it's a pyramid or a weird formation of the hill. But in my opinion, it may be because the chinese pyramids are buried under land and terrain and also if you give nature enough time, it can take over any structure. And these pyramids are supposed to be old. Also they won't put anybody in that position unless he sticks with the standard operation procedure.

It's been known for a while that he would be leaving the position some time soon. However, I'm sure the old man would want to go out with a bang... so hopefully he has something nice to show us before he leaves.

I'm going to be a pessimist on this. I think the entire county is committed to the pyramids being entirely Egyptian. They are extremely ethnocentristic. I doubt any Egyptian who has studied Egyptology would ever dream of revealing or hinting that ancient history was not the Egyptian races history.

I hope so to


I don't think it will be the last thing we here from him tho.
He seems to me like the kind of guy that has made his hobby his work.
You don't just loose interest He's probablymaking room for someone else.

I do think the guy has earned respect. If it comes to a point he in fact did stop any breaking research which would brake up his world view, on his age. Can we really blame him ?

I think not.

Hawass may turn into another dissident against the mainstream! He has been exposed to so many plausible theories over the years that hes had to defend the official story against im sure its left him wondering deep within. The claim of retirement is used so often for colleagues to describe their dropout from mainstream, but they have actually transcended the narrow mainstream paradigm. Hawass would have many people to support his change of heart and would be far from alone in his views, although I doubt it, it is a possibility.

I read this last year and I cant remember for the life of me where. I hope he does. From what I read he has to retire, his time is up. He isnt allowed to hold the position anymore. I was doing some reading on Egyptian archaeology last year and came across that information. It would be nice to have some things researched there that he wouldnt allow.

Translation from Dutch to English"

Do not ask us how we know ask us not who we know, but we know it. Three independent sources have recently confirmed us that hard work is to Zahi Hawass, the conservative and unpopular big boss of the Egyptian pyramids among others, his rush to tackle. After this summer it would be ready. In the Egyptian parliament, week after week he gets heavy headwind. There are countless examples of his political debacles. The frustration is still the most marks in people who are directly affected. Archaeologist Sam Osmanagich example. Although geologists from Emmy-winner Hawass sure that at least one pyramid in Bosnia, Zahi calls himself a heap of stones after hallucinating that looks like a pyramid. In Egypt, archaeologists and researchers also suffered from him. It's annoying not to be allowed to investigate when you know that something under the ground. Take for example the Sphinx ...


Not that anything bad Zahi Hawass did, but he played it safe on. The timeline that we call history should still be fine-tuned, but drastically upset throw was never an option. Another few months and the archaeological world is changing. Without that Hawass wants anywhere between sitting and refuses to allow projects that threaten our well-known history of head up, we may meet a nice time. If there is not another deeply conservative media on horny bloke sits down, of course
