Dating the pyramids
The Royal list of Abydoss (Right) - In the hall of records at the temple of Abydos, Seti I and his young son, the future Ramasese II are shown worshipping the cartouched names of 76 of their ancestors.
Unacceptable predecessors such as Hatshwpsut and Akhenaten and the Pharaohs from the Amarna period are omitted from the list.
It is clear to see that apart from Piazzi Smyth (and possibly Proctor), the dates for the creation of the pyramid are all considerably earlier than modern Egyptologists claim.
This is not due to a lack of science or rigor; On the contrary, the Radio-carbon dating at Giza supports the idea that the Great pyramid was built long before it is currently claimed by Egyptologists.
"Furthermore, it looks like Manetho "cooked the books," stretching out the history of Egypt as long as he could get away with, by adding years which did not exist, listing kings who shared the throne (co-regencies) as ruling alone, and dynasties as proceeding one after another, when many may have overlapped, especially during the intermediate periods.
It lists the dynasties of the kings with the lengths of each reign in years, months and days.Because of the poor condition, piecing the fragments together has proven to be difficult.These lists have been used to create a comparative dating system for many sites and artefacts by comparing them with the cartouches found on objects uncovered.We have seen that the cartouches found in the 'Relieving chambers' are the best evidence yet for dating the site as the inscriptions run under and behind other blocks and therefore appear genuine.It is clear that any results from that line of research are in themselves complicated by the interpretation of the cartouches exact meaning. We know that the use of Giza was not restricted to the 4th dynasty pharaohs because of earlier finds in the area.
