A Tale Of Two Egypts
5,000 Years Ago, Ancient Egyptians Sailed to America and This Could Be The Evidence. A Tale Of Two Egypts
Coca and tobacco found in ancient Egyptian mummies: Is this the ultimate evidence of transoceanic voyages 5,000 years ago?
Is it hard to believe they could have constructed powerful vessels that would have allowed them to travel to other continents?
According to DNA analysis performed on ancient Egyptian mummies, this may not be just ‘another crazy conspiracy.’
Dr. Svetla Balabanova was left in total disbelief when she saw the results of her own analyzes.

The prestigious German medical examiner had been commissioned to analyze several mummies looking for traces of drug use in the rulers of ancient Egypt.
What she found was considered to be a history changer.
With scientific rigor, Dr. Balabanova repeated the tests several times and sent samples to other laboratories for independent testing.
All successive analyzes confirmed the initial results.
Ancient Egyptian mummies had high levels of cocaine, nicotine, and tetrahydrocannabinol. But where did the ancient Egyptians obtain the products from?
Despite finding evidence, the scientific community remained skeptical, accusing the researchers who had made the discovery of incompetence.
They began by stating that the mummies were false until they were proven to be authentic.
Then they went on to argue that they were contaminated until it was shown that it is impossible to contaminate the inner stem of a hair.
They then claimed that the experiments were not reproducible until an independent group of experts found traces of cocaine and nicotine in other Egyptian mummies in a British museum.
Finally, they ended up defending the indefensible: that tobacco and coca did not come from South America but rather were very rare varieties of African origin.
But no evidence of coca or tobacco cultivation was ever found in Africa, Europe or Asia before the time of Christopher Columbus.
What the mummies tell us is an intolerable story for history as we have learned in school.
Coca and tobacco are undoubtedly originating in South America.
The Egyptians apparently had the ability to build the Pyramid but did not have sufficient naval skills to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
How can we explain these controversial results?
Is it possible that the Ancient Egyptians traveled somehow to the American continent thousands of years ago?
Or could this be evidence enough that a highly advanced civilization existed on Earth thousands of years ago? A civilization that had knowledge and technologies that neither the Egyptians nor the Greeks nor the Romans had at that time?
Whatever it may have been, many authors agree that this is irrefutable proof that the ancient Egyptians had contact with products that originated halfway around the globe; on the American Continent.
Here’s Proof That Africans Settled In South America Long Before Columbus’s Voyage
Long before Christopher Columbus set out for his first trip to the Americas in 1492, a number of Africans had already made this voyage.
Although the Malians, led by King Abubakari II, made the trip in 1300, archaeologists have found a number of artefacts that indicate that Africans had set foot and lived in South America as far back as 13,000 BC to the 600 AD,
The evidence indicates that people from Axum, Meroe and Land of Punt began settling in South America between this time, according to the skulls found in excavation projects in Ecuador, Valdivia, Chile, and among the Ponuencho of Peru.
According To Studies:
Polish professor Andrzej Wiercinski revealed the discovery of African skulls at Olmec sites in Tlatilco, Cerro de las Mesas and Monte Alban. Even more ancient African skeletons that would clearly predate Columbus’ arrival in the Americas were discovered throughout Central America and South America with some even being unearthed in what is now California.
Scientists also believe that the similarity in religion between Africans and South Americans could be a link that the two had encountered each other.
Ancient portraits of the Quetzalcoatl, a messiah serpent god, and Ek-ahua, the god of war, are unquestionably Negro with dark skin and wooly hair. Why would native Americans venerate images so unmistakably African if they had never seen them before? Numerous wall paintings in caves in Juxtlahuaca depict the famous ancient Egyptian “opening of the mouth” and cross libation rituals. All these religious similarities are too large and occur far too often to be mere coincidences.
Some of the artefacts discovered included a stone head of a man wearing a circular earring on his right ear, an artefact quite similar to the carving of Akhenaton. There has also been the discovery of pots and water jars that were used in the Land of Punt.
Somalia: The Ancient Lost Kingdom of Punt Is Finally Found?
Tourists from all over the world are welcomed in Upper Egypt to admire temples and learn about the fascinating history of ancient pharaohs. However, the pharaohs’ true origins are not told and our literature is lacking adequate information.
Queen Hatshepsut’s temple inscriptions at Luxor reveal that her divine mother, Hathor, was from Punt – with strong indications that the pharaohs considered the origin of their culture to be Punt Land . The following is a step in the direction of exploring the pharaohs’ roots and establishing a trip along history and time.
More historians are saying that other evidence that proves this claim is the similarities between Axumites and Peruvians’ medical operations. The two groups used trepanning, a surgical procedure that involves the drilling of the skull indicated by the skulls dug out in both areas.
The Land of The Gods
Punt Land is described in ancient Egyptian texts as the “Land of the Gods” and a region rich in resources. After Jean-Francois Champollion deciphered the pharaoh’s hieroglyphics in 1822 AD, western scholars began reading the texts. Debates started as to the origins of the pharaohs and the location of Punt Land.
Fourth Dynasty reliefs show a Puntite with one of Khufu’s sons, and Fifth Dynasty documents demonstrate trade between the two countries. A tomb inscription of the military commander Pepynakht Heqalb, who served under King Pepy II (2278-2184 BC) of the Sixth Dynasty, narrates how Heqalb was sent to “the land of the Aamu” to retrieve the body of the warden of Kekhen.
Punt Land became a semi-mythical land for the pharaohs, but it was a real place through the New Kingdom (1570-1069 BC). During the reign of Amunhotep II (1425-1400 BC) delegations from Punt were accepted. The reign of Ramesses II (1279-1213 BC) and of Ramesses III (1186-1155 BC) mentioned Punt as well. The pharaohs were fascinated by Punt as a “land of plenty” and it was best known as Ta Netjer – “God’s Land.”
Somalia – Continuing Puntite Traditions
In Hatshepsut’s temple, an expedition shows Punt Land located in present day Somalia. The ancient Somali name for their region was “Bunn”, a name referenced in texts related to trade with the pharaohs as “Pwenet” or “Pwene”, and the region is known as “Bunni” today. The culture of Punt Land bears several resemblances to that of the ancient Egyptians, such as language, ceremonial dress, and the arts.
Regarding Language, A Comparison Of Ancient Egyptian To Somali Vocabulary Shows Remarkable Similarities:
- Ancient Egyptian, “Hes” = song, sing with musical instrument/ in Somali, “Hes” = song, sing with musical instrument.
- “AAR” means “lion” in both languages.
- Ancient Egyptian, “Ra” = the Sun God/ in Somali “Qor Rah” means the neck of Rah.
- Ancient Egyptian, Haa – Hey = glad, to be glad/ in Somali, Haa – Hey = glad.
- Ancient Egyptian, “Hun”, Hunnu” = young man, young girl/ in Somali “Hun”, “Hunno” = young man, young girl.
- Ancient Egyptian/ in Somali Awoow = grandfather, old man.
Punt Land’s Location Found
Based on the evidence of the ancient pharaoh’s inscriptions, Punt/Punt Land is certainly the State of Somalia at the Horn of Africa . The ancient city of Opone in Somalia is identical to the city of Pouen referenced as part of Punt by ancient inscriptions.
As previously mentioned, Hatshepsut’s inscriptions also claim that her divine mother was from Punt – and there is evidence that Bes (the goddess of childbirth) came from Punt Land as well. Other inscriptions indicate that the 18th Dynasty pharaohs considered Punt as the origin of their culture.
Hatshepsut’s Punt Expedition
The Land of Punt was long associated with the gods in ancient Egyptian history because materials from Punt were also used in their temple rituals. Priests wore leopard skins, gold became statuary, and incense was burned in the temples.
Hatshepsut’s reign was among the most prosperous in Egyptian history. She considered her expedition to Punt Land among her greatest successes. The importance of Punt to the queen is evident at her temple; where scenes from Hatshepsut’s life decorate the walls of the colonnades; her birth, the transportation of obelisks for the Temple of Amun in Thebes , and the great expedition to Punt are all depicted.
Hatshepsut’s Punt expedition had special significance, simply because it was larger than any other, and evidence suggests that it was directed by the gods to establish a connection. Amun-Ra of Karnak spoke from his sanctum in the temple and directed Hatshepsut to undertake the exploration of Punt Land. Hatshepsut made petition at the stairs of the Lord of the gods. A command was heard from the Great Throne , an oracle of the god himself, for her to search out ways to Punt Land. Hatshepsut then commanded that the will of the god be done.

She ordered the construction of five ships for the journey which traveled down the Nile through Wadi Tumilat. (The Arabic name of ‘Wadi Tumilat’ is believed to reflect the existence of a great temple to the god Atum in the area.) Then, they passed through the Pharaoh’s Canal in the eastern Delta. The crews carried their ships overland to the Red Sea after disassembling them. Then they hugged the shores as they made their way to Punt Land at the Horn of Africa. From inscriptions found in Hatshepsut’s temple it is clear the Puntites were amazed at the pharaoh’s arrival.
Based on the inscriptions from Hatshepsut’s reign, the five ships set out from a port on the Red Sea – probably Quseir, to journey southwards to Suakin, where the expedition disembarked with the ships that were hugging the shoreline. From Suakin, the route to Punt Land was overland through the Red Sea hills.
Trading With The Land of Punt
Inscriptions indicate relations between the two countries were very close and show the Puntites as an extremely generous people. The Land of Punt was routinely praised for its riches and the “goodness of the land” by many of the pharaohs’ scribes .
The expedition presented a fair exchange by both parties and the treasures offered by the Puntites were gold (even though the Egyptians had their own gold mines), wild animals, live apes, elephants, leopard skins, ivory, spices, precious woods, cosmetics, incense, aromatic gum, and frankincense and 31 incense trees ( Boswellia). This was the first time a plant species was successfully transplanted to another country. The transplant was so successful that the trees flourished in Egypt for centuries.
The Puntite items were in return for the pharaoh’s weapons , jewelry, metals, and tools. The roots of the frankincense trees brought back from Punt by Hatshepsut’s expedition in 1493 BC can still be seen outside of her temple.
Egypt grew as a nation with trade that increased in the latter part of the Pre-Dynastic Period (c. 6000-3150 BC). By the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3150-2613 BC) trade was firmly established with regions in Mesopotamia and Phoenicia. The Fifth Dynasty (c. 2498-2345 BC) witnessed Egypt’s flourishing through trade with Punt Land.
The Ancient Egyptians and Peruvians also had similar back string looms, which further indicated contact between the regions of the world.
The presence of Africans in South America has also been recorded by a number of historians who had travelled. Even Columbus himself mentioned in his records that, the native people told him that black skinned people had come from the south and southeast in ships trading in gold-tipped metal spears. This claim has also been mentioned by Nicholas Leon.
