What I'm interested in, though, is Schoch's assertion that the same culture(s) which developed pre-Dynastic Egyptian artifacts influenced Mesoamerican culture as well.
I understand that Schoch claims additional evidence to support this hypothesis, but I have not seen any. Does anyone out there have any information on cultural/ linguistic/ architectural, etc. correlations between the Egyptian and various Mesoamerican cultures?
I am by no means an "expert" on such things, although I have visited Maya sites in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico on several occasions. However, I do plan on an Egypt trip in early 2008 and would appreciate as much background as possible before I actually go there.
I posted this message at another site and was directed here. Any good data would be much appreciated.
