Your source for what Vyse and Hill and maybe (why the doubt?) Perring did being . . . a direct quote from the liar Sitchin. Not only do you not know what they did, worse than that, you’ve filled your head with lies about it.
Had you looked beyond Sitchin, to Vyse’s book (never mind his almost unreadable manuscript), to standard sources and to contemporary documents, you’d know that “Walni” was Alfred Septimus Walne, a British (medical) doctor who went to Egypt in 1836, in part to pursue his own antiquarian interests; he became (also) British vice-consul in Cairo in 1837. If Vyse had any kind of dispute with Walne, it oddly failed to stop them dining together later. So what reliance can we place on Sitchin, when he gets even something this basic wrong?
It’s perfectly clear that Vyse intended to publish himself (which he did very promptly). Why on earth would he give his material away to an Italian rival? No one does this.
> Vyse......desperate to keep control!
Vyse behaving as any Egyptologist of the time (and most since) would behave. Priority of publication meant something, then as now — and he did publish precisely the material he was supposedly keeping secret, so what are you bellyaching about?
All you’ve done here is confirm what was evident already: you have no useful level of discernment on this issue.

The puzzles are Sitchin-invented and entirely spurious.

Yes, Mr Bird. I read all of this many, many years ago. Unlike you, I went on to consult the source cited (the Colonel’s own description), among others. I found that Sitchin was lying: he was grossly misrepresenting the material and making stuff up.
Why are you still spouting on this issue, when you’ve not even begun to research it?
