However unlikely, a discovery similar to that made by the French in northern Egypt in 1799 would help unlock the mystery of Meroitic, one of the world's few undeciphered scripts, which appeared in the area around 25 centuries ago.

Ahmed explained that fourth cataract finds have so far made no significant contribution to understanding the Meroitic language. "Unless, of course, there is a Rosetta stone. But if I found it, I wouldn't tell anyone."
maybe the Club is not looking too closely at the Sudan
i bet they already have a hit team on their way to slience Mr Ahmed

Can anyone look closely at Sudan?

Without getting shot?

Archaeology is not a competition here but more like a family,

A not-so-subtle dig at Hawass?

I don't know. Perhaps Bauval will visit.

Sudan - China - Giza - Teotihuacan - Orion's Belt


of course you need to change the scale a little bit and move one of the stars to get it to fit

Its kind of creepy how similar they are.
No wonder its cannon fodder for the pseudoscientists.

"Creepy" is not the word. "Uncanny" might do it.
