Ancient Egypt 

EXCLUSIVE: BRITISH and Irish people may have their heritage intertwined with Ancient Egyptians, with the advanced group believed to have established links with these lands thousands of years ago.

Historian Malcolm Hutton became interested in the possibility of a link by studying ancient myths and stories which appeared to reference Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs and gods.

Mr Hutton claims to have unearthed evidence in England – and also Ireland – which shows there is truth in the myths and stories.

He told Express.co.uk: “The Ancient Egyptian finds in both Ireland and England leave no doubt as to their presence in the British Isles, thus bearing out all the old mythical stories.”

Mr Hutton has unearthed plenty of evidence that would appear to bear this claim out.

In 1939 the hulls of two ancient ships were discovered in Ferriby in the Humber Estuary but because of the outbreak of World War Two no research on them was carried out at the time.

However, they have since been raised and examined, and the study revealed they were of the type used by Egyptians.

They have been radio-carbon dated, placing them at around 1400 to 1350BC.

Mr Hutton indicates that this would fit in with the story of Princess Scota, who is said to be the ancestor of the Gaels who settled in Argyll and Caledonia.

There also appears to be evidence of physiognomic similarities with the races too.

In Sir Charles Oman’s ‘History of Britain before the Norman Conquest’ it states: “Enough of bones and skeletons of this age have been found to prove that the Neolithic people were a race of moderate stature and slender proportions, with skulls that were markedly long in shape, whence they have often been called simply the early Dolichocephalous people…”

And Mr Hutton said: “In simpler English, a people with long skulls and kin to similar races of the Mediterranean basin.

“We only have to look at the head of King Tut, uncle of the Princess Scota or Skhety to see the very same skull and stature.”

Mr Hutton also points to research undertaken by Heather Elizabeth Adams on a find in 1955 at the Mound of Hostages, a tomb located in the Tara-Skryne Valley in County Meath in Ireland which would appear to be the remains of a young prince wearing a necklace of faience – fine tin-glazed pottery – beads.

Mr Hutton said: “The skeleton was radio-carbon dated to the very same time period, 1350 BC and the necklace has been identified as being Egyptian, not only of identical manufacture but also a matching design.

“The collar of the dead King David whom we call Tut has the very same faience beads embedded into it. Another identical necklace has been found not in Ireland but at Molton in Devon.”

There are also a number of burial sites across Europe, including the Newgrange Barrow in Ireland, that are full of Ancient Egyptian depictions.

Many of these have drawings of Egyptian Solar ships which include images of the Sun God Ra, according to Mr Hutton.

There also appear to be linguistic similarities with TW Rolleston in his book ‘Celtic Myths and Legends’ citing Professor J Morris Jones, saying: “The pre-Aryan idioms which still live in Welsh and Irish were derived from a language allied to Egyptian and the Berber tongues.”

Mr Hutton has also researched the numerous stone circles that are dotted through the British Isles, which according to the historian reflect solar formations.

These in turn are possibly linked to the Great Pyramids.

Mr Hutton said: “It is only when we link the circles up that we begin to get an inkling of their whole purpose and that purpose ties Britain firmly to the Pyramids of the Giza Mound.

“The Thornborough Henges in North Yorkshire are not just another ground reflection of Orion’s Belt but these circles point directly to another circle, Cana Barn, placed at the relative distance of Orion to the star Sirius and that Star was for the Egyptians the one they watched for every 1,460 years.”

Mr Hutton said: “There isn’t the slightest doubt about a very large and strong Egyptian presence in the British Isles during the Bronze Age.”
