Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Djoser
Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
This Blog "Secrets of Ancient Egypt" was started 19. September 2008 under the name "Mysteries of Ancient Egypt"

Behold, the Secrets of Ancient Egypt, the land that the universe created when the cosmos made the Nile. As the Queen of the constellations raised herself above the two horizons and declared her name as Sirius, so did the jubilation of life occur, meanwhile her husband the Egyptian constellation of Orion stands guard by her.

The articles that you find here, investigates all the mysteries that lies hidden in the ancient desert sand, specifically their spiritual nature which began among the stars.

While I worked in Egypt I quickly saw something more than the guides would talk about.
Like I would say to my guests before entering a temple, "I can give you the regular guide story, which last 40 min, and then you can walk around by yourself? Or..."

"I can give you everything I've got, meaning I will tell you the details, and anything you point to, I will explain. I will use up all of your time, and still have a lot to say. the choice is yours".
- Guess which one they picked, always :)

You could say that this blog is based on that concept, of giving you everything I've got, on what ever topic from this ancient land.

Mysterious objects, that either moves or sings, are studied in more detail. I can guarantee you a journey which you haven't seen before, from below the ground to up among the stars.

The Pyramid builders that left empty sarcophagus and a knowledge which no one have been able to imitate since...
A peculiar and mysterious thing, is also the fact that what we have from the Pyramid Builders are in stone not papyrus manuscripts. Their spiritual belief was written into the stones.

The mysteries of Edgar Cayce are also looked into, as well as the case of the Emerald tablets.

Furthermore you have a unique opportunity to read more about individual stars and constellations of ancient Egypt, known under the name of the Decans.

This blog goes extensively into different subjects from this holy land, and takes you on a real as well as truthful journey into the magical land of the great ancient Egyptians.

The Emerald tablets articles can be found under the label Hermes Trismegitus, there are more than one article about each subject, and it is for that reason that they are arranged into label categories.

Things found inside Djosers Step Pyramid

People tend to believe that the Pyramids were empty when they were first opened, but this is not true. 

The Great Pyramids at Giza are the most popular pyramids among people today, but in fact there are many pyramids all the way down to Sudan. 

But even thou the Great Pyramids are so famous, how many people know about what was found inside the pyramids, when they were first opened after thousands of years? 

One thing that might baffle people for eternity, could be why so few if any people have been found in their sarcophagus in the pyramids of Egypt? 

Or why so many lids seem to be of some sort of importance, based on their placement and different looks? 

Or why they all seem to follow a curtain building plan, in the placement of the rocks and even holes.

Djoser Step Pyramid

(also known as Zoser) 3. Dynasty 2630 - 2611 B.C. 
The Granite Tomb Chamber (Supposedly Djoser's resting place); 
There were found pieces of mummies in this chamber. 

Under an outer roughly linen layer, another much finer linen layer was found which was neatly wrapped around (some veins) and bones of the mummy. 

This was a uniquely technique, used only in the old kingdom and maybe even before the old kingdom. 
New C14 age testing has revealed that the mummies are several hundred of years younger than Djoser.

The Eastern Shafts and Galleries underneath Djoser's Step Pyramid; 

This Pyramid is a most fascinating building, and it is build up in different stages. But below the step pyramid, there has been found something more mysterious. 

A deep structure underneath the pyramid, where there is eleven shafts/corridors that stretch towards the west. 

The Galleries called I and IV, have apparently been used as tombs, because two intact sarcophagus of Alabaster were found there and fragments of even more were also found. 

The Gallery called III, could be seen as a corridor that leads to an opening of a little bit bigger room, which were covered by fine Limestone. There were also found the Hip bone of an 18 years old woman, and the tomb bore the sigil of Djoser's Horus name and two other titles which belonged to Imhotep. New C14 Age testing has revealed something, which only adds to the secrets of the Pyramid of Djoser. One set of bones belonging to a woman, dates to several generations Before Djoser. 

The Gallery called VI and IX, contained a beautiful collection of stone vessels, and stacks of plates and cups. Most of the items were made of Alabaster, but there were also found other fine stone materials among the items. All together there were around 40.000 objects. Many objects had inscriptions upon them, and they clearly did not belong to Djoser, they probably belonged to his pharaoh ancestors.

The most obvious mystery to Djoser's Step Pyramid
Is probably the other Tomb, which is also known as the 'South Tomb.' Excavation lead archaeologists to discover not one but two different underground levels. Both have an inner tomb chamber, but they are as fare as I know, two different sizes. 

There are countless of theories as to why this South Tomb exists.

Who was Djoser

(also known as Zoser)

Status; Pharaoh. 
Ruling period; 2668-2649 B.C. 
Location; Saqqara. 

We have to go back to around 2668 before the birth of Christ, before we reach the reign of the pharaoh Djoser. 

In those days, one was given a birth name, until one became of age and chose another name, which is referred to as a Horus-name, so did Djoser follow his ancestor's path. 

He chose the name 'Netjeri-khet' which means 'Divine of the body.' We can presume that this name was the chosen one, because the name Djoser is found among the oldest of carvings, which would make him either a child or a very young boy, when those relief' were made. 

The start of his reign was filled with political inner turmoil, but he would change this through his reign. 

His name can be found as fare south as Aswan, he probably went further south than that; I base this idea upon the fact that more temples can be found further south, but they are hardly studied (because of inner conflict in those areas). 

 His dearest friend and highest official gave him eternal life through his mere visions. Imhotep created the great Step Pyramid complex at Saqqara, but complex seems too sallow a word for its creation. 

 Remarkable walls which seem like a lost generation of buildings, which kept away from both the circular shape and all the hieroglyphic upon their walls. 

A most noble mind must have reign in those days, because there are no pharaoh giving gesture to the gods upon the building or anything like that, it is anonyms in that way. 

 I cannot find that much about him in general, but rather more about the pyramid itself and theories about its purpose. 

Who Djoser really might have been in person, seems as big a mystery as his great vizier Imhotep. 

The carvings mostly show Djoser engaged in the Heb-sed festival, where he performs the Heb-sed ritual. Nor have there been found that many statues of him. 

The only part of Djoser' body that has been found, is his foot...

Even more remarkable is how suddenly such a huge and magnificent structure was build and with such complex attributes, which seem to have no deeper meaning, or do they? 
And there would never be another like it!
