I'm curious what properties these glyphs possess that allow anyone to date G1 to the 3rd Dynasty. As far as I can tell, the entire Old Kingdom time line is an artifact of Baines' strong background in art, history, and culture combined with his sorely deficient expertise in archeology and engineering.
If Baines was a skilled archeologist/engineer, the Old Kingdom timeline would be vastly expanded.
Why would the authenticity of glyphs in Campbell's Chamber necessarily (or even probably) point to the 3rd dynasty and, for example, not possibly point farther back in time?
