Egyptian Hieroglyphs in Australia

Interestingly, Egypt isn’t the only place with hieroglyphs. There has been a controversial discovery of hieroglyphs in Australia.

These hieroglyphs have created a fuss among researchers and are still being debated, being a controversial issue among historians and archaeologists. The ongoing research is still trying to verify the authenticity of the hieroglyphs.

Found in the early 1900s, the hieroglyphs were the basis of the folklore in the area. With about 250 stone carvings, many of indigenous people have believed it to be part of something grand.

The Kariong archaeological site is known for its prehistoric grave site. The grave belongs to prince Nefer-Ti-Ru, who was buried by his brother, the commander of a ship that got wrecked along the coast of Gosford. The glyphs were the writings that accompanied the grave. There is a belief that there is a relationship between the grave site and the hieroglyphs of Kariong.

Although many scholars strongly believe that the hieroglyphs in Australia are a product of a hoax, there are still many researchers who would disagree. This controversial discovery suggests that there may be earlier settlers to Australia that could possibly come from the Middle East. While there is still too little known about the hieroglyphs, it is possible that they are older than the Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The majority of historians and archaeologists believe that the hieroglyphs in Australia have nothing to do with those in Egypt. Yet, egyptologist Mohamed Ibrahim and his team managed to translate the glyphs.

They concluded that they are authentic and even have grammatical variations that were present in the 2012 discovery of hieroglyphs in Egypt, which were found to have similarities with the text in Kariong.

Other researchers have linked these hieroglyphs to the archaic Phoenician writing of Egypt. Phoenician merchants were a nomadic tribe that travelled across all over the Mediterranean world. There may be a possibility that a merchant boarded a ship that could have sailed to Gosford.

Some other pieces of text have similarities with the Sumerian writings. Sumerian was a language of the ancient Mesopotamia. The writing was used widely in their religion and scholarly works. Researchers have found the link between the Sumerian writing with the hieroglyphs in Kariong.

Many historians and researchers have still not accepted these hieroglyphs as authentic in an effort to protect the mainstream version of history. The verification of these glyphs to be authentic may very well disprove many theories that are the basis of the history we know today. New discoveries will always arise and many of them will probably change the way we see the past, the present and the future.

Surprising Insights about Night People Vs. Morning People, Backed by Research
