The more that I study the history of ancient Egypt (Kemet) I find artwork depicting account of warfare conducted agains the Ku****e and Nubians who are always represented as "darker" than the reddish-brown color of the Egyptians (Khemites). I know that pictures of Queen Nefertari and Queen Tiye, wife of Amenophis III, and mother or Pharaoh Akhenaten are "darker" and indicate a southern, Nubian origin. However, much of the artwork comes from a period after the Hyksos and Hittitie invasions and indicate a possible origin outside of the darker "Nubians". In fact, some of the tomb paintings depicting the submission of the Nubians to the Khemetic "Amenists" are quite graphic. At many periods Upper and Lower "Khemet" were divided, particularly before the reign of king Ahmose and after the death of King Tutankhamen. What archaeologcial evidence exists to prove that the Khemites were "Black" and why are they depicted differently than the obviously BLACK NUBIANS and KU****ES?
