Vanya, this has always been my gripe with the traditional timelines, too.

Orthodox Egyptologists, archaeologists, anthropologists, etc., have shown a clear traditional tendency to simply categorize everything they see there as being the result of a single, linear, non-interrupted civilization from start to finish. Those investigators haven't at all considered the notion that we are looking at layers of multiple civilization, possibly separated over a far more vast period of time, each one building on one or more of its predecessors, reusing and repurposing what artifacts and infrastructure they found there when they arrived ("adaption").

Although most of us will clear out any evidence of the previous occupant of a house when we move into it as our own "new" residence, today's archaeological orthodoxy quickly jumps to the paradoxical assumption that the most recent civilization that occupied the site must therefore also be the original builder of the site. They see some Roman work sitting on top of Baalbek, and so the entire site, including megalithic foundation and 2000 ton blocks over at the "quarry" must all be the work of Romans. They find "cemeteries" around an enormous pyramid and assume the pyramid, therefore, must certainly have been designed originally for a funerary purpose too, and that the provenance of entire ancient site can be determined by dating inscriptions that might have been put there eons after the original construction.

Such an overly simplistic view of civilization is an obsolete standard, has led to a modern construct of civilization that's based on extremely misguided tenets about the origins of mankind, and must be revisited with modern standards of scrutiny and revised accordingly.

In my opinion.
