Scientists Map The Genome Of Ancient Egyptian Kings, And They Weren’t From Africa

Via Billy

The first ever genetic analysis of mummies found that ancient Egyptian kings were more closely related to West Asians than Africans, according to a study published Tuesday by scientists at the Max Planck Institute.

The research found that ancient Egyptians were most closely related to Neolithic Levantine, Anatolian and European populations. The mummies tested did not share strong genetic links to Africa often found in modern Egyptians.

“This suggests that an increase in Sub-Saharan African gene flow into Egypt occurred within the last 1,500 years,” Wolfgang Haak, who led the research team, said in a statement.

“The genetics of the Abusir el-Meleq community did not undergo any major shifts during the 1,300 year timespan we studied, suggesting that the population remained genetically relatively unaffected by foreign conquest and rule,” Haak said.


  1. Wait till BLM hears about this.

  2. Egypt and Libya were always known to be white, because we have skeletal evidence. It's not even controversial. And it's the oldest pyramid that's the largest, suggesting the Egyptians moved in from a different part of the world, perhaps from the Black Sea region?

    1. Germans? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sea_Germans

    2. 2667 to 2648 BC is when the first pyramid was constructed (wikipedia). So, during the Bronze Age.

      The "Black Sea deluge hypothesis" focuses on 5600 BC (again wikipedia). So, maybe that's unrealistic.

      If I had the time, I'd study ancient history like that. I have a variety of books. One of them pondered whether Egyptians and other Europeans hadn't come from the Black Sea after its flooding. And one of the arguments had been how the first Egyptian pyramid is the largest, suggesting they had not originated from that area but had instead moved there.

      Also, I've read how skeletal remains suggest Egyptians as well as some other ancient civilisations were related to Europeans.

      Some Europeans wish to argue how whites are intellectually superior. That's not my draw to archaeology. I am interested in heritage, however.
