PDF Editor FAQ
What was it like to be in Vietnam during the war?
I arrived in July 1969. My khakis melted on the tarmac at the airport at Cam Rahn Bay. Welcome to Sunny Southeast Asia.As my fellow colleagues have shared, there was no standard. I was assigned to a mechanized infantry unit which meant we performed both mounted and dismounted patrols. We secured bridges, conducted highway sweeps, performed Thunder Runs, responded with Rapid Reactions or Quick Response, handled hamlet security at nights, and our Scouts (jeeps) provided convoy escort.In the Bong Son Plain (Binh Dinh Province) our mech unit was the rapid reaction for 173rd Airborne along with securing every bridge from LZ Low Boy all the way south to Bong Son. We conducted highway sweeps every morning looking for mines. We secured Tam Quan hamlet, which had been overrun several times in ’68 and ’69. So at night, often we ran Thunder Runs along Highway One between midnight and 2 AM random mornings (firing off both sides of the roads to discourage the NVA/VC). Envision a bunch of APCs going down the road in the dead of the morning at full blast with full guns blazings shooting into the jungle. The intention was to stop firing when we approach a hamlet. Most of the time we did—sometimes we weren’t as successful. It is is refreshing to watch .50 rounds and 7.62mm from M60s tear through trees, hutches, etc…brutal. Whoops! It was the roof. SORRY.Dismounted patrols sucked. Uncle Ruck (Rucksack) was Alice’s uncle since Alice wasn’t born until after Vietnam. The contents were varied based on short-term missions versus long-term. In other words, if you ‘humped the bush” for weeks straight with periodic resupply from a Huey, the contents were more significant than we did being mechanized infantry where most humps were short patrols.I was a RTO (05-Charlie which was a radio operator) in a mech infantry unit. I had been in a communications or signal battalion in Germany before being levied to Vietnam so I was well qualified on commo equipment (it eventually got me out of the field so I could become a privileged REMF).So, a 11 Bravo grunt (ground-pounder) might be looking at packing his ruck with: an average of about six OD green plastic canteens attached to their rucks and at least 1 metal canteen cup which was used for either heating food or water. Based on patrol length, we may also also carry a half dozen M26 or M61 grenades plus several bandoleers of M60 ammo. I seem to recall 6–8 magazines with 5.56 ammo for the M16. Sometimes we carried several boxes of unloaded cartridges to load if we got in a heavy firefight.As an experienced grenadier, in lieu of the M16 crap, I carried a M-79 grenade launcher (thumper or blooper) so I had to pack a compliment of HE rounds, flares, a few canister rounds and several smoke (40mm) rounds, a few Willie Petes (White Phosphorus). I wrote about this in a separate Quora response. I loved that thumper. I was good with it and could pop some serious dead direct 40 mike-mike rounds.We carried several pair of dry socks (worth their weight in gold—especially during Monsoon season). I don’t recall a bayonet but maybe. Also insect repellent was essential and if you smoked (I did) several packs of cigarettes and a Zippo in a plastic bag. Of course TP—precious.Since I was an RTO (radio operator), I had to pack several extra batteries and a number 2 pencil (used eraser to clean battery terminals) for PRC-25 radio backpack. I also had to pack a collapsible whip antenna. We also packed C-Rations or LRRPs (dehydrated meals—the forerunner of MREs). LRRPs were heated with water in a canteen cup heated over a makeshift fire or a piece of C4 removed from a Claymore mine.We also packed several Claymore anti-personnel mines (M18s) and a clacker (igniter). You also carried letter writing stuff and a picture or two of your honey(s). I recall a couple of OD towels. One-each poncho, OD in color. Some carried paperback books to read between patrol stops and right at dusk. We also carried a flashlight with a red lens cover although it was not used too often for obvious reasons.A few smoke grenades to pop for helicopters.We also packed some hand flares to pop. I carried a Lineman’s knife (TL-29 I think), that I had acquired in my signal unit in Germany before being levied to Vietnam. I am sure I have forgotten something. Sorry five decades is a bit of time for accurate recall. Did I mention the bottle of rum and Pina Colada mix, Brie cheese—no...that was a different camping trip to the lake. Ha ha.You are looking at about 90 to 100 pounds. Think of carrying a teenager with a sprained ankle around all day long. When you have to go to get up someone has to help you up like a husband would help his pregnant wife up from the ground. When incoming rounds start coming in you look awkward diving for cover.Loved the mounted (on top of the APC). Loved the Cadillacs.We held small security bridges and checkpoints and backed up other units. You pulled 3-hour guard shifts at night and as an RTO maintained radio contact with the TOC (Tactical Operations Center).Occasionally we ran short dismounted patrols but our tracks were our Cadillacs and the 173rd Airborne ran mostly dismounted and relied on our tracks in our AOs. I had the recurring luck of riding shotgun with the company clerk on the APC that delivered the mail each day to all the bridge security checkpoints. I manned the 50 cal behind the TC shield. It was just he and I for hours. I had no idea how I got stuck behind the 50 cal with that duty.Later, our battalion would be transferred to the First Field Force-Task Force South near Phan Thiet (a coastal city). Totally different terrain. By the time we got there it was the beginning of monsoon. Our tracks went out immediately on long sweeps and patrols and got stuck in rice patties. We daisy-chained to help each other to get out and many times would have 4–5 vehicles stuck deep in a rice patty all cabled to each other waiting for the VTR to pull us out one by one. We would set up a perimeter, drive vertical PSP stake in the ground in front of the track and along the side and then attach the chain link fence to it to catch B40, RPG and grenades. You would then get your heavy gloves on and grab the concertina and start laying it out along the perimeter edge. Your arms would get ripped as the metal teeth had no conscious and had no recognition as to who the enemy was.We all couldn’t sleep inside the track at night, so after erecting concertina wire around the perimeter and chain link fencing in front of the track, we always erected a tarp to congregate under in the rain. Although the tarp provided some solace, monsoon rain came in at all angles based on the wind, so a soldier stayed dry only in the dead center. Sometimes monsoon rain can come down horizontally, so even the center was no guarantee. Think of the movie “Forrest Gump”. The rain beat you to death.We took turns sleeping on the outer edges. The hammering rain was merciless at night to those inhabitants of the border. The droplets were weighty and rapid. The staccato battering distracted us from the sleep our fatigued bodies screamed for. It was common to wake up with a two- to a three-inch puddle of water in your cot and soaked to the bone. Dismounted—no cots—just soggy everything.Dry socks were kept in a plastic bag inside the track or rucksack. Unfortunately, demand was high and supply was low. After a couple changes a day, we ran out. We bartered precious items like cigarettes and Military Payment Certificates (MPC) to acquire more socks. In no time, most of us contracted some form of foot fungus (jungle rot) that we took back as souvenirs to the States (fungus among us). I still, to this day, have scars between my toes.Guard duty was a real struggle. When a soldier perched on the track for guard duty, the plastic poncho provided some form of coverage, but the face had to be exposed to conduct a 180 degree visual scan of your position. In the States, rain fell in droplets; in Vietnam, it descended in pellets with brute force.Cigarettes were not allowed during guard duty for obvious reasons, so the only company was your thoughts. Long before I learned to live without cigarettes, the craving for one was strong. I would often argue with myself and say, well, if I close the hood real tight, they wouldn’t see the glow. The challenge was to keep it dry and unobservable. Fortunately, self-preservation and logic were stronger than my nicotine addiction so I avoided smoking when I could.After a few minutes, with great reluctance, the brief reprieve ended, and I returned to my role as guard. Grabbing the hood and sliding it down to expose my face, my return to the bleak and wet night was complete. I was then faced with staring intently at the perimeter, struggling to detect movement, all the while being battered by the voluminous buckets of water. Because I wore glasses, it was a continuous battle to keep them from blurring and restricting my vision. I couldn’t see with them, and I couldn’t see without them. Humorously, I reassured myself that the stealthy enemy was pretty bright and had no interest in sliding through the deep rice patties of water putrid with buffalo dung and mosquito larva to sneak upon us. I hoped. Still, it would be an opportune time so caution was the calling card.I am sorry but a tribute to Vietnam is not complete without the erie vibratory and hypnotic voice of Grace Slick singing ‘White Rabbit” or CCR punching out “Fortunate Son” or my all-time favorite that I almost wore out on the jukebox in Germany before being levied to Vietnam was Otis Reading’s “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.”Another day—another night in the life of an eighteen-year-old in sunny Southeast Asia.
During the Vietnam War, what was the typical day like for a US soldier? What time would they normally go on patrol? What time did they go to sleep? Where did they eat?

Is it a rude awakening for Eurasian-centrists to tie ancient Egypt's origin to places other than those in Africa to find out that those ancient people were brown skinned "black" too?
No. The statement is flawed, unrealistic. I can provide the truth, if you are interested, and expand on this topic - ‘a rude awakening’. No, they were not "Blacks" too?The Gebelein predynastic mummies are six naturally mummified bodies, dating to approximately 3400 BC from the Late Predynastic period of Ancient Egypt. They were the first complete predynastic bodies to be discovered. The well-preserved bodies were excavated at the end of the nineteenth century by Wallis Budge, the British Museum Keeper for Egyptology, from shallow sand graves near Gebelein (today, Naga el-Gherira) in the Egyptian desert.Gebelein WomanWorld's 'oldest tattoos' found on ancient Egyptian mummiesGebelein WomanSome Of The Oldest-Ever Tattoos Found On Egyptian MummiesFile:Bm-ginger.jpg - Wikimedia CommonsThe mummified man formerly dubbed "Ginger" in a reconstructed Egyptian grave-pit (photo taken in 2008)Size 1.63 metres (5 ft 4 in)Created Late Predynastic period c. 3400BCDiscovered GebeleinPresent location British Museum, LondonIdentification EA 32751Ginger, British Museum, 2013Gebelein predynastic mummies - WikipediaAncient Middle EastTell AswadRegion Damascus basinPart of VillageFounded c. 9300These plastered skulls you see before you, are from the Middle/Late Pre-Pottery Neolithic B Period, Levant, the site of Tell Aswad, Syria, dated some 9,500 years ago.

The latest research has split the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) period into 3; PPNB Ancien from 8700 to 8200 cal BC and the PPNB Moyen from 8200 to 7500 BC. PPNB Récent has been equated with Dunand's "Néolithique ancien de Byblos".A plastered and painted skull from Tell Aswad, PPNB period.Tell Aswad (Arabic: تل أسود, "Black hill"), Su-uk-su or Shuksa, is a large prehistoric, neolithic tell, about 5 hectares (540,000 sq ft) in size, located around 48 kilometres (30 mi) from Damascus in Syria, on a tributary of the Barada River at the eastern end of the village of Jdeidet el Khass.By this time in human history, people lived in mud brick houses, and within those houses people built platforms on which to place their ancestors' skulls. Skulls were dug up, the lower jaw removed, and gaps were filled in with plaster. Then it was covered with plaster, with the outermost layers molded to resemble the person's discrete facial structure. After that, it was painted in red ocher or black bitumen. Details were included: the person's hair was painted, and their facial features were painted on, even mustaches were added. Some had cowrie shells placed as their eyes.The amount of detail suggests each plaster skull is a representation of a specific person, a connection intended by the artists. This would make these skulls some of the earliest intentional portraiture. These ancestral representations were prominently placed in peoples' houses, in areas where people went about their daily lives. The skulls were seen and were present in the family's life, not relegated to a separate cemetery with a dedication stele, as is a current popular tradition.Plastered human skulls are reconstructed human skulls that were made in the ancient Levant between 9,000 and 6,000 BC in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B period. They represent some of the oldest forms of art in the Middle East and demonstrate that the prehistoric population took great care in burying their ancestors below their homes. The skulls denote some of the earliest sculptural examples of portraiture in the history of art.A PPNB (7,000-6,000 BCE) plastered Natufian skull from JerichoThe Painted SkullPlastered human skullsPlastered human skulls are reconstructed human skulls that were made in the ancient Levant between 9,000 and 6,000 BC in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B period.

Some evidence suggests deliberate cultivation of cereals, specifically rye, by the Natufian culture, at Tell Abu Hureyra, the site of earliest evidence of agriculture in the world.Natufian cultureThe Natufian culture is a Late Epipaleolithic archaeological culture of the Levant, dating to around 15,000 to 11,500 years ago.

It is securely identified as the site of Sikkan, attested since c. 2000 BC. Sikkan was part of the Aramaean kingdom of Bit Bahiani in the early 1st millennium BC. In the area, several mounds, called tells, can be found in close proximity: Tell Fekheriye, Ra's al-'Ayn, and Tell Halaf, site of the Aramean and Neo-Assyrian city of Guzana. During the excavation, the Tell Fekheriye bilingual inscription was discovered at the site, which provides the source of information about Hadad-yith'i.In the early 20th century Tell Fekheriye was suggested as the site of Washukanni, the capital of Mitanni, but the claim is unconfirmed. Many scholars opposed this theory including Michael Roaf, Peter Akkermans, David Oates, Joan Oates and Edward Lipiński. However this identification received a new support by Stefano de Martino due to recent archaeological excavations by a German team lead by Mirko Novák and Dominik Bonatz.HistoryThe site of Tell Fekheriye was occupied as early as the Akkadian period.

Her face was reconstructed with the latest technology available to anthropologists and paleontologists (not to mention forensics). She is believed to have been of the ancient city’s upper crust and served as a priestess during her lifetime. The lady is also notable due to the artificial eye that was discovered, still lodged in the eye socket of her skull after thousands of years.Maryam Tabeshian of the Cultural Heritage News Agency of Iran (December 10, 2006 had previously noted of researchers having excavated a 4,800-year-old artificial eye along with a skeleton and other findings from the Burnt City (located near the city of Zahedan in Iran’s Seistan-Baluchistan province in the southeast of Iran).Skeleton of a young woman from the Burnt City. Note artificial eye in the eye socket of the skull.The site of the Burnt City has also yielded numerous interesting finds including an ancient measuring ruler, backgammon game pieces and an animation device. Researchers have ascertained that the artificial eye belonged to a woman aged 25-30 who hailed from a higher echelon of the local society at the Burnt City.Ancient dices discovered at the Burnt-City. At present experts are (a) attempting to determine why the game was played with sixty pieces and (b) working to decode the rules of the game. Iranians call Backgammon “Takht-e Nard”.Interestingly, the woman’s gravesite also yielded vessels of clay, a leather bag, a mirror of bronze and various other ornaments. Professor Michael Harris, a specialist in the field of optometry at the University of California at Berkeley, has stated that:“It’s unlikely such attention and effort would have been paid to a commoner…She may have been a member of a royal family or an otherwise wealthy individual.”Prosthetics were of course known in the ancient era with references made to an artificial eye of gold in Hebrew texts (Yer. Ned. 41c; comp. Yer. Sanh. 13c). The prosthetic found in Iran however is different in that it is evidence of the oldest attempt at making this as “realistic” as possible. Professor Mansur Sayyed-Sajadi, who supervised the excavation, has stated:“At first glance, it seems natural tar mixed with animal fat has been used in making[the eye]…whoever made the eye likely used a fine golden wire, thinner than half a millimeter, to draw even the most delicate eye capillaries…”A curious feature of the “eye” are parallel lines that have been drawn around the pupil to form a diamond shape.Two holes at the sides of the “eye” helped hold it in place. The eye socket of the woman however appears to have developed an abscess as a result of constant contact with the prosthetic.https://www.kavehfarrokh.com/iranian-studies/iranica/women-of-persia/reconstruction-of-the-face-of-a-5000-year-old-woman-in-iran/The world’s earliest prosthetic eye was worn by an ancient Persian priestess. The female soothsayer stood 6′ (1.82m) tall, and the mesmerizing effects of the golden eyeball would have convinced those who saw it that she could see into the future. “It must have glittered spectacularly, conferring on the woman a mysterious and supernatural gaze,” said leader of the Italian team Lorenzo Costantini, adding, “She must have been a very striking and exotic figure.”The priestess lived 5,000 years ago in what is now Iran, where her skeleton was unearthed in 2006 by Iranian and Italian archaeologists excavating an ancient necropolis at Shahr-i-Sokhta [“Burnt City”] in the Sistan desert. The eyeball was made of a lightweight material thought to be derived from bitumen paste and later determined to consist of a mixture of natural tar and animal fat. Lines had been engraved radiating from the iris and gold that had been applied in a thin layer over the surface. A tiny hole had been drilled on each side of the half-sphere, which had a diameter of just over 1″ (2.5cm), so that it could be held in place with thread. Microscopic examination confirmed that the artificial eye had been worn during life: the socket had an imprint from prolonged contact and marks from the thread. Further analysis suggested that the woman may have had an abscess on her eyelid because of long-term contact with the golden eyeball.Mansour Sajjadi (pictured), leader of the Iranian team, stated that the skeleton was that of a woman, aged between 25 and 30, whose cause of death could not be determined. She had lived between 2900 and 2800 B.C. and her facial characteristics (see video about facial reconstruction here) differed from the local inhabitants, suggesting that she had migrated from Arabia. “However, considering the usage of tar in the artificial eyeball and proficiency of jewelers of Burnt City during ancient times, what we can say for sure is that the eye was made in this city.”5000 Year Old Artificial Eye | Northwest Eye DesignMitanni | ancient empire, Mesopotamia, Asia | Britannica— Mitanni, Indo-Iranian empire centred in northern Mesopotamia that flourished from about 1500 to about 1360 bc.

This is one of the earliest known representations of a human head in Egypt.This man is nearly 6,000 years oldThe statuette in the Cairo Museum, extremely similar to the Louvre piece, is even taller (35 cm). The position of the man is the same, but he is wearing a penis sheath, a common accessory in Egypt and the Middle East in the fourth millennium BC. It has the same inlaid eyes, rounded, clean-shaven head, and long, slender body. The shape of the beard is different, but the two figures are so similar that these statuettes must have been fairly contemporaneous. The Cairo statuette comes from the richest tomb in the Mahasna cemetery (some fifteen kilometers downstream from Abydos), which contained the skeletons of a man and a woman. It has been accurately dated, via the ceramic, from the Naqada I period, to between 4000 and 3700 BC.Nude Male Statuette | Louvre Museum | ParisPrehistoric Egypt - WikipediaThis small male figurine carved from hippopotamus ivory comes from Safadi, in the Negev, Israel.

Standing male figurine H. 30 cm, gold Cairo, Egyptian Museum, R-486Once the crushed and bent pieces of sheet gold were laboriously reconstructed and conserved, they turned out to belong to two male figurines presumably representing an early ruler and his son and heir. The core of these statuettes was made of some perishable material like wood, no traces of which have been preserved. The gold sheet was attached to this core with numerous gold rivets 4 140 such rivets were found 4 amply testifying to the exceptional skills of the goldsmiths of the time. Both figures were of standing naked males. The eyes of both were made of lapis-lazuli, a raw material then imported from as far away as present-day Afghanistan on the peripheries of the known world. This is by the way further corroboration of the enormous significance that trade had for the ruling elites of the emerging Egyptian state. The eyebrows of the statuettes were also inlaid with some other material than gold, possibly bitumen or ebony, but no trace of this has survived. Both these raw materials had to be imported to Egypt, bitumen from the Near East and ebony from Nubia. The style of the figurines and the emphasis on some of the details, such as protruding ears, bigger than life phalluses, and meticulously rendered nails on the fingers and toes, fit well with the character of Predynastic art in Egypt. So far, however, there have been no discoveries of similar figures made of precious materials, depicting what could have been early rulers and their heirs. The necklace found together with the figurines appears to have been connected with the larger of the two statuettes. The fact that the beads were made of undoubtedly imported ostrich eggshells and carnelian serves to emphasize the significance of the figurines.https://pcma.uw.edu.pl/wp-content/uploads/template/main/img/lat70/cat_3-4.pdfEgyptian AntiquitiesAuthor(s):David ElisabethThis little statuette is one of a series of ivory figurines dated by scholars to circa the Early Dynastic Period. Although most have a tenon beneath the feet, it is not known to what they were fixed, and their purpose thus remains unknown. In the absence of any context of discovery, the probable date of the sculpture has been deduced from stylistic features. Female Nude | Louvre Museum | ParisEgyptian AntiquitiesFrom the end of Prehistory to the end of the Middle Kingdom (c. 3800 - 1710 BC)Author (s):Élisabeth DavidThis woman, shivering in a cloak, probably dates back to the beginning of the dynastic period.It is attached to a series of ivory figurines of men and women, dressed or not, relatively numerous.Like all the others, it was part of a larger whole: under its feet, a tenon allowed it to be plugged into a support, and the top of its head is pierced with a hole.Egypt: a cold country where the sun is hotOn the walls of temples and tombs, the representations may suggest that the Egyptians were always dressed lightly. It is not: the dawn is freezing there and the cloak was a very common garment. We found in some tombs, next to various dresses and loincloths, large pieces of cloth that must have served as a cloak. They are most often without form or seam, because we draped themselves in them as with a shawl.The art of draping yourself in your dignityThe coat of the statuette is worn in a sophisticated way: the fabric is wrapped around the body, passing under the right arm of the woman pressed against the body, then covering the left shoulder.The left side is held in front of the body by the left hand, completely hidden below.The woman is probably wearing a tunic of thick or looped fabric, one sleeve of which appears on the right shoulder, while the other protrudes from the coat along the left.A statue difficult to dateOpinions are divided as to the age of the figurine: the ivory statuettes have been attested since at least the time of Badari (4500-3800 BC). A series of figurines, male and female (and animal?), Has been updated in a repository on the site of Hierakonpolis, but it is not dated with certainty. The Louvre woman has no archaeological pedigree, and does not have an exact parallel, whether dated or not. Her hairstyle, strands in bands on either side of the head gathered in the back by a loose ribbon at the shoulders, is similar to that of another ivory statuette from the Louvre. Unfortunately, this parallel also has no discovery context. The very stiff character of the figure, his head sunk into the shoulders, encourage us to attribute it to the thinite era (1st and 2nd dynasties, 3100-2700 BC).Battlefield PaletteObverseEinsamer Schütze - Own workBritish Museum, LondonReversePossible prisoners and wounded men of the Buto-Maadi culture devoured by animals, while one is led by a man in long dress, probably an Egyptian official (fragment, top right corner). Battlefield Palette.Jon Bodsworth - http://www.egyptarchive.co.uk/html/british_museum_07.htmlThe Battlefield Palette (also known as the Vultures Palette, the Giraffes Palette, or the Lion Palette) may be the earliest battle scene representation of the dozen or more ceremonial or ornamental cosmetic palettes of ancient Egypt. Along with the others in this series of palettes, including the Narmer Palette, it includes some of the first representations of the figures, or glyphs, that became Egyptian hieroglyphs. Most notable on the Battlefield Palette is the standard (iat hieroglyph), and Man-prisoner hieroglyph, probably the forerunner that gave rise to the concept of the Nine bows (representation of foreign tribal enemies).The palettes probably date mostly from the Naqada III (ca. 3300–3100 BC), i.e. late predynastic period, around 3100 BC. The two major pieces of the Battlefield Palette are held by the British and Ashmolean Museums.Lower fragment, obverse, (28 x 20 cm), in the British Museum.Robed individual and defeated enemiesAn individual in robe appears fragmentarily behind a naked prisoners. He may be wearing a full-length dress made of leopard skin, and is probably a representative of the victorious Pharaoh standing behind one of the naked prisoner (naked, but for a penile sheath). The fragment in front of the prisoner may possibly be part of the ancient sign for "Libya", an early enemy of pre-Dynastic Egyptian kings. The character would consist in the throwing stick on top of an oval, meaning "region", "place", "island", a toponym of Libya or Western Delta pronounced THnw, Tjehenw, as seen on the Libyan Palette.Man in patterned and fringed dress, behind naked prisoner.The prisoners on the Battlefield Palette may be people of the Buto-Maadi culture subjected by the Egyptian rulers of Naqada III.Einsamer Schütze - This file has been extracted from another file: British Museum Egypt 029.jpgBattlefield Palette - WikipediaEgyptian Narmer Palette with serpopard design.The route of this trade is difficult to determine, but contact with Canaan does not predate the early dynastic, so it is usually assumed to have been by sea trade. During the time when the Dynastic Race Theory was still popular, it was theorized that Uruk sailors circumnavigated Arabia, but a Mediterranean route, probably by middlemen through Byblos, is more likely, as evidenced by the presence of Byblian objects in Egypt. Glyptic art also seems to have played a key role, through the circulation of decorated cylinder seals across the Levant, a common hinterland of both empireEgyptian palettes, such as the Narmer Palette (3200–3000 BC), borrow elements of Mesopotamian iconography, in particular the sauropod design of Uruk.Narmer Palette (circa 3000 BCE). The Egyptian symbol of the king smiting his enemies with a mace was adopted centuries later by the dynasts of Mesopotamia.The most important early ‘urban’ site in Egypt is undoubtedly the ancient Nekhen, modern Kom el-Ahmar (‘Red Mound’), best known by its Classical name Hierakonpolis, located 80 km (50 miles) south of Thebes on the west bank of the Nile. The Predynastic and Early Dynastic city was spread out over an area running 2.5 km (1½ miles) from north to south along the Nile and, more remarkably, over 3 km (almost 2 miles) from east to west. Within this extensive zone, different clusters of structures developed with their own individual character.The site was first excavated in a systematic way by the British archaeologists James Quibell and Frederick Green in 1897–99. They were lucky enough to discover a major early temple, which is most famous for the ‘Main Deposit’, an extraordinary cache of votive material that contained the most important objects for the unification period found anywhere in Egypt. The most famous of these objects are the Narmer Palette and the Narmer and ‘Scorpion’ maceheads. These over-sized ceremonial objects are covered with relief decoration of two individuals – to whom we refer as Narmer and ‘Scorpion’ – depicted wearing regalia and behaving in ways (smiting enemies, initiating major communal projects) that in later periods were used as motifs designating royal activity. Therefore these objects support the view that Hierakonpolis was not only a major settlement site of Upper Egypt at the time of the unification, but that it was also a political centre – perhaps the capital of a southern kingdom – which produced the leaders who would become kings of a unified Egypt around 3050 BC.In an early example of royal sponsorship of agricultural projects, King ‘Scorpion’ wields a hoe on this important ceremonial object from Hierakonpolis, the ‘Scorpion’ Macehead.

Close examination reveals that parts of five archers are preserved on it. We see two complete heads in the center of the carved area. The slightly upturned forehead, eye, and nose of a third man appear at the bottom edge below the head of the man on the right. The outstretched arm and the hand above this third head belong to a fourth man, whose figure is otherwise lost. At the extreme right edge of the fragment the hand and arrow of a fifth man are visible. Of the two arms below the head of the archer on the left, the upper belongs to the second man with a complete head and the lower belongs to the third archer. Thus the group originally consisted of at least three men standing in a row, one behind the other, and another archer kneeling in front of them.All the men hold longbows with arms stretched out straight in front of them at shoulder height.

Other statue fragments, including four bases inscribed for the king, were also discovered. Only one figure could be fully reconstructed, but the similarities of stone and scale suggest that this head belonged to one of at least four lifesize seated statues of Menkaure that were set up in the offering hall of the temple. Although the three heads were carved in slightly varying styles, they clearly represent the same person. The knobbed chin, well-formed mouth, full cheeks, and prominent eyes are seen in other representations of Menkaure, such as that in the pair statue in this catalogue (cat. no. 67).

The study was made on mummies of Abusir el-Meleq, near El Fayum, which was inhabited from at least 3250 BCE until about 700 CE. A shared drift and mixture analysis of the DNA of these ancient Egyptian mummies shows that the connection is strongest with ancient populations from the Levant, the Near East and Anatolia, and to a lesser extent modern populations from the Near East and the Levant. In particular the study finds "that ancient Egyptians are most closely related to Neolithic and Bronze Age samples in the Levant, as well as to Neolithic Anatolian and European populations".Overall the mummies studied were closer genetically to Near Eastern people than the modern Egyptian population, which has a greater proportion of genes coming from sub-Saharan Africa after the Roman period.The data suggest a high level of genetic interaction with the Near East since ancient times, probably going back to Prehistoric Egypt: "Our data seem to indicate close admixture and affinity at a much earlier date, which is unsurprising given the long and complex connections between Egypt and the Middle East. These connections date back to Prehistory and occurred at a variety of scales, including overland and maritime commerce, diplomacy, immigration, invasion and deportation".Krause describes the far-reaching data set gained from looking at mitochondrial genomes: "This is not just the DNA of one person.
