    Bold, Black and Beautiful! There's a New Face on Ancient Egypt
    By Alex P. Kellogg, BET.com Staff Writer

    Posted August 13, 2003 -- Nefertiti, is that you?

    Well, a team of British scientists thinks this may be what ancient Egypt's most powerful queen looked like.

    Damian Schofield of Nottingham University and Martin Evison of Sheffield University, both in the United Kingdom, reconstructed the face of this bronze-skinned beauty from a 3,400-year-old unidentified skull discovered in 1898 and forgotten for nearly 100 years. They applied their forensic expertise in examining digital X-rays of skulls, the same science used to identify unknown murder victims.http://www.bet.com/articles/0,1048,c3gb7109-7928-1,00.html#boardsAnchor

    The funny thing about this is they're now just finding this out. Dr. Chiekh Anta Diop and Dr. ben-jochannan has discovered this a long time ago.

    Please my friends do not be excited by this rendition of the face of Nefertiti. Nefertiti was not African and was not a friend of Africa. She was a foriegn white princess of the Mitanni empire called Tadu Kepa whose name was changed to Nefer Nefer Aten and later shortened to Nefertiti. She is resposible for the downfall of Kamit.

    in the above links, queen nefertiti is shown with distinctly "negroid" features. As a matter of fact, she looks VERY much like the face that the archeologists came up with of queen nefertiti.

    U have a point.. However, from the artifacts - she was a black woman. HOWEVER, the actions of KMT under her reign with your husband is very troubling. She may have been an off spring of one of the Asiatics who invaded the Asiatic regions around 1700 BCE and so.

    I wonder why the media doesn't give as much props to Queen Tiye

    Even if the sister didn't act right. She was still cute.

    Peace,

    Based upon the works of many African scholars who focused their research on the ancient Africoid civilizations of Asia, their studies reveal that it should not be readily assumed that all Asiatics were “non-Africoid”, in religion, culture and/or features. This sometimes, has been an overlooked fact and a mistake, of some our most esteemed researchers, only because their studies were many times dedicated solely to African people, in Africa proper.

    Even if, Nefertiti was not positive a “positive role model”, still, she should be historically critiqued and analyzed.

    After we have established the “core of the knowledge” that confirms our presences in ancient Egypt and beyond, we must move deeper into the intricacies of these cultures and make our own judgments, not afraid to scrutinize the character of any of Africa’s historical icons or noteworthy periods of its history. We owe this type of scholarship to the great African scholars who first open the closed doors of African history for us.

    We don’t have to romanticize and glorify everything and everybody in Africa and ancient Egypt, in order to find their extraordinary cultures worthy of study. We should be impartial and objective at all times.

    Remember,__”Sometimes, one man’s God is another man’s devil.”

    Ashe,
