Modern "history", especially the discipline known as "Egyptology", is responsible of revising and "whitewashing" African history in some of the worst ways. Numerous "Egyptologists" are in the forefront of this distortion, specifically as it relates to historical chronology. A prime example is the following. David M. Rohl (born 12 September 1950) is a British Egyptologist and former director of the Institute for the Study of Interdisciplinary Sciences (ISIS) who from the 1980s has put forth several theories revising the chronology of Ancient Egypt and Israel to form a new chronology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Rohl The New Chronology is a revised Chronology of the ancient Near East created by Rohl. It involves a major revision of the conventional chronology of ancient Egypt, in particular by redating Egyptian kings of the 19th through 25th Dynasties. Rohl asserts that the New Chronology allows scholars to identify many of the main characters in the Old Testament with people whose names appear in archaeological finds. The New Chronology has not gained wide acceptance among Egyptologists.
