I'm glad you accept that, because that's the way it is.
I'm not against the RC dating, or the chem analysis, but like many Mainstreamers, I feel it's unnecessary as we trust in our local Egyptologists.
I'd be shocked if the test results came back w/ a 19th Century date as I believe the Glyphs were painted in the Quarries, but would accept the results of properly conducted tests regardless of outcome. Many difficulties are involved in acquiring accurate test results due to contaminants in/on the paint, e.g. salt, soot from torches, etc. etc.
I think Stocks did a good job in documenting how the vases, etc. were made....again, I trust my local Egyptologist, and I do NOT trust the Fringe due to their past conduct.
Campbell's Chamber roof blocks are Tura Limestone until proven otherwise.
THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
