Mainstream Egyptology admits to Mesopotamian/Levant presence in Naqada period pre Dynastic Egypt ( Christine
Hobson)....but it's not bold header on the peer review websites.
Early Dynastic Egyptians...who have the cross culture mix.
These will recognize script and items such as Vinca period pottery or masks. ..in Egypt.
It's possible some % of these items are property of families which have Elite legacy from abroad.
It's possible trade contact brings some % in.
The items would cycle out from use and socio activity.
IE. ..moving items and breakage.
Some % May have been removed under a protectionist stance by say Priest class or Pharaohs wanting foreign influence
China has had some severe purges of knowledge and classes of people...bordering on the Psychotic episode
If not actually.
I'm not sure which ancient history compiler commented that the Khufu Era Pharaohs were foreign or Asiatic
Something in that direction.
Khufu has Red Sea port activity. ...
Continues the Sinai Tourqoise mines.
Has shipping trade with Levant/Lebanon...
It's a possible connection to the ancient Hurrian culture which some Historians opine the Hyksos Elites are connected with.
Poster Thanos may have previous posts Of Vinca Ubaid trade which might connect to ancient silk road towards the Indus.
Sumer traded by sea with the Indus cultures.
Land route trade would expand language and symbol script.
The signature of foreign presence in Pre Dynastic Egypt.
The Kurgan culture built mounds....the Celts. ..even in Britannia.
And of note. ...mound builder culture Ancient America was coast to coast.
Mainstream history isolationism thingy is an arena worthy to contest.
