Oh oh....no boat.....looters must have got it.
The water erosion as noted by my link to Sherif Morsi/Antoine Gigal article.
The peer review ignore this erosion and focus on boats/disassembled boats and covering stones
With Pharaonic designate that propelles their debate demand as per Egyptology Timeline,
While sneering at common sense position that these ground recesses were extant long before said Dynastic Pharaonic Reigns.. ( as witness by severe erosion)...and adapted/used
To hold boats.
Signatures of Pharaonic or even work gangs graffiti. ...would support reuse/recycling
Recycled blocks of large scale have been shown this forum on threads by Jon.
This discussion is avoided by our peer review magi.
As....once admitting recycling and restoration are occurring in Dynasty 4.
Dyn # 3 is also possible ...even 1st Dynasty.
The boat burials at Abydos with the Elite burials/some having ritual burial akin
To Sumer where servants and animals all join the Elite in death/afterlife journey.
So yes....boats and burial rites have some synergy.
The Naqada period evidence of Mesopotamia/Levant influence in Egypt supports this as
Being one of the boat/Elite realities which is confirmed by remains.
The pits at Saqqara or at Giza may not be boat pits at all...
If a Pharaoh adopted/adapted and did restoration at an extant pyramid.
He may use then Era thinking on the socio/religious...to use the pits to honor
The burial afterlife theme....
Sort of a then Era ...Tomb theory ( Except said Pharaoh knew it wasn't a Tomb...as he
Never built the pyramid...it being extant before his time)
Our peer review may get their first pass here.
As their claim to tomb theory may be accurate to the reign of these Pharaohs
Who dressed up sites to be Royal and Elite burial locals.
If your going to build a huge pyramid as a tomb for a Pharaoh.
You forget the Barque of a Million years and ...oops...better dig the ground out for that.
Would this mistake after first pyramid not be corrected....with next pyramids
Having special chamber inside the Tomb*....for the Pharaohs boat? .
If Zawiyet el Aryan and Abu Rawash were not*....incomplete pyramids
But we're in fact. ...Meridian tracing mapping platforms for the 4 cardinal directions.
Yes...if this is their function and not Tomb...tomb...tomb.
Is it possible Egyptology gets the entire Tomb pyramid thing wrong...
Spends 200 years pushing a cart of rotting produce around?
