Dear reader present or future
This is a desperate attempt by Creighton to find some way of overcoming the obvious flaws in his original HOAX !
What he is suggesting is that Samuel Birch, a scholar and peer of those nominated by SC ,committed himself to open publication in 1840, years after the discovery, in both Operations Vol 1 and Vol II explaining and declaring that both Wilkinson and Rosellini at the time prior to, and up to, Col Vyse's discovery did not realise the meaning of Rosellini #3 -Khnum Khuf cartouche. Despite the fact SC thinks that their writings/publications was Vyses only source of inspiration
He explained that he (Birch) himself, and openly to all others and naming both (later Sir) J G Wilkinson and I Rosellini specifically , via open published works, admitted he and they and all scholarship at the time, could not read the phyle names in their entirety and made some guesses or "perhaps" (later proved wrong) .
Yet Creighton thinks Vyse was far superior than the times, and all other known scholarship, and with concerted effort managed to eclipse all others, then run the risk of spoiling his actual find, without ever disclosing or demonstrating any such superior knowledge.
Creighton has recently admitted he thinks the Wellington chamber glyphs are original . It contains the gang name including the Khnum Khuf cartouche. So why press on with heaps of forgeries if he could explain what it meant. No motive, just a few Khufu cartouches would have sufficed. No means,except in SC imagination, and bugger all opportunity if you read what he and his team accomplished and were busily doing during the supposed HOAX.
According to SC, Vyse & Co had some "secret cache of documents" (never ever to come to light) which they copied. So he has to give them super powers to be able to read it including phyle names contain hitherto untranslated glyphs. Then Vyse in his only major enduring published work allows Birch to try and make sense of the find without offering much himself about the hieroglyphics.
Not only that but no one had worked out what the Horus name meant. However, I suppose Creighton is working up some scam as to how he discovered that before 1837 also.
Stay tuned, watch this space cadet.. he will come up with some more BS! in the near future. He might even get the "secret cache" chemically tested.!
