The mystery of the Palermo Stone: Evidence of the ‘ancient astronauts’ in Ancient Egypt?

Around the world, scholars of Ancient Egypt have made finds of artifacts that suggest that our story, as we know it, is not entirely true and sections have been intentionally altered. Although this theory continues to be a subject full of controversy that has many detractors, it cannot be denied that there are documents, such as the Palermo Stone, which could definitely explain that our history is not as we know it.

When it comes to establishing the chronology of the different dynasties of kings that ruled throughout the history of Ancient Egypt, we have a series of invaluable documents that help experts with this arduous work, which is far from a finished satisfactory form. One of such oldest documents we have to respect is the so-called “Stone of Palermo,” of which there are seven pieces scattered in various museums.

The seven fragments would be distributed as follows:

  • Three fragments are in the Archaeological Museum of Palermo, Italy, since 1877. Though its ancestry is unknown.
  • Three fragments are in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo that appeared in 1903, as well as another one in 1910. In this museum, there is a fifth fragment that was acquired in the antique market in 1963.
  • The last fragment is in the University College of London (Petrie Museum, UC 15508). It was also found in the antique market, where Petrie himself acquired it in 1917.

Does The Palermo Stone Of Ancient Egypt Prove That Our History Has been Modified?

The Palermo stone is considered one of the fundamental sources for the investigation of Ancient Egypt and its entire history on Earth. Although the exact date of the creation of this magnificent stone remains unknown to scientists, it is thought that it was made during one of the Ancient Kingdoms, in the 25th century BC.

Among the information found in the Palermo Stone, similar to other ancient documents with similar information, it talks about the Kings before the dynasties of ancient Egypt and their pharaohs of the first five dynasties. The most mysterious part of the Palermo Stone is where it mentions those mysterious kings, who, according to their descriptions, have been named as mythological beings by some conventional researchers. But Why? Why such a “strange mention” found itself in the documents of Palermo Stone?

1) [name destroyed], 2) Hsekiu/Seka, 3) Khayu, 4) Tiu/Teyew, 5) Thesh/Tjesh, 6) Neheb, 7) Wazner/Wadjenedj/Wenegbu, 8) Mekh, 9) [name destroyed] © Wikimedia Commons
The text, written in hieroglyphs, mentions 120 kings before the dynasties that ruled before Ancient Egypt was officially transformed into a civilization. Strangely, the names of these enigmatic “Gods” (as mentioned on the Palermo Stone) are also mentioned in other more recent Egyptian documents. The text is divided into three horizontal registers:

  • The upper one shows the name of the pharaoh of that period
  • The middle one the outstanding events: festivals, cattle counts, etc.
  • The lower one indicates the highest annual level of the Nile river flooding.

In the upper band are the names of several predynastic rulers of Lower Egypt: “… pu”, Seka, Jaau, Tiu, Tyesh, Neheb, Uadynar, Mejet, and “… a”.

Sadly, the importance of the Palermo Stone was not immediately recognized to the point that this valuable piece of history was once used as a gate.

Similarities Between Documents From Different Eras Of Ancient Egypt?

For example, there are many similarities between The Royal Canon of Turin, The Stone of Palermo and The List of the Sumerian Kings; all three texts name the Gods who came to earth and ruled for thousands of years.

In addition to this, the Palermo Stone also mentions in a more detailed and extensive way everything related to the taxation of Ancient Egypt, as well as its ceremonies, the different levels of the Nile, military formations and a lot of precise details that make it, unequivocally, real.

So why do many scientists question their documents? The main argument for denying the existence of these kings is that, according to their descriptions, they would confirm the existence of the Ancient Astronauts, a theory that would throw all of our conventional histories to the ground.
