The Irish Origins of Civilization

(Volume One)

The Servants of Truth

(Druidic Traditions and Influence Explored)



The Disciples of Horus

The land we now call Egypt was colonized…and was originally peopled by fair Celts from the shores of Britain. This was the Exodus of the Aryans, some of whom returned later to their primeval homes – Comyns Beaumont (Riddle of Pre-Historic Britain)

Horus (from Har, Hor, or Heru) – god of the sun, primarily associated with Southern Egypt and with the ancient city of Hierakonpolis (“City of the Hawk” or “Hawks”). In the earlier dynastic era he was referred to as “The Distant One.” The letter “H” was used as “the” and therefore Hari would really have been “The Ari.” Horus was “He of the Ari” The root Ari, can be found in the word Aristocracy, which refers to a noble and enlightened ruling elite. The term is misused today by those with no right to it.

Nekhen (Hierakonpolis, Hieraconpolis, or Hieracompolis) was the religious and political capital of Upper Egypt at the end of the Predynastic period…and probably also during the Early Dynastic Period…It was the center of the cult of the hawk god Horus of Nekhen, which raised in this city one of the most ancient temples in Egypt, and it retained its importance as the cult center of the divine patron of the kings long after it had otherwise declined. The original settlement on the site dates from Naqada I or the late Badarian. At its height from about 3400 BC it had at least 5,000 and possibly as many as 10,000 inhabitants…The ruins of the city were originally excavated towards the end of the 19th century by the English archeologists James E. Quibell and F.W. Green. In the “principal deposit” of the temple of Nekhen they found important ceremonial Protodynastic artifacts such as the Narmer Palette and the famous macehead bearing the name of King Scorpion – (Wikipeda Online Encyclopedia)

  Classical archaeologists are in agreement that ancient migrations did take place in prehistoric times, although they often tend to be rather hazy about the dates and the countries involved – Ralph Ellis (Jesus: Last of the Pharaohs)

We learn from official sources (Christian, Judaic, and other) that the symbols found throughout Western countries, on flags and state regalia, etc, come from spurious migrating “Semitic” tribes. We are told that the symbolism originates with these tribes and that it goes back to the dawn of time. But we also know what “dawn of time” means officially. We know that it refers to the period between 7,000 and 11,000 years ago. However, as we are now beginning to realize, these dates do not mark the beginnings of mankind’s cultural and technical history.

Herodotus himself is on record as having been told by contemporary Egyptian priests that their written records went back no less than 12,000 years. Eusebius, the early Christian bishop of Alexandria, calculated Manetho’s recorded history as taking Egypt’s civilization back 35,525 years…Other records (both cultural and historical) were far more ancient still – John Gordon (Egypt: Child of Atlantis)

The perceptive researcher realizes that there were extremely advanced civilizations in existence thousands of years prior to those which allegedly arose in historical times. Clearly, we are not meant to look back too far, and are not meant to believe in the existence of ante-diluvian civilizations.

But what happens if we do look back this far? What happens if we do find evidence that proves that man was “civilized” aeons before 11,000 years ago? Certainly, it does not take a lot of investigating or proof to understand that great civilizations of the world could not just blossom, with all kinds of fully-fledged customs, idioms, and techniques, but with no antecedent stages that must have existed.

Particularly, in the case of predynastic Egypt, we marvel at the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza, the Osirieon, and the temples of Karnak and Luxor, etc, even though we cannot account for the technology that built them.

Author, and expert on Egypt, Ralph Ellis clarifies the contentious but revealing issue for us:

…the early craftsmanship and constructions from the Old Kingdom are the finest, and the quality of and dimensions of each monument reduces then on throughout the following millennia…there were a number of magnificent monuments that were made during mankind’s early megalithic era. These include monuments as diverse as Stonehenge and Avebury in England, Teotihuacan in Mexico, Chou-Chou in Manchuria, Hagar Qim in Malta, Baalbek in Lebanon, Ephyra in Greece, Cuzco in Peru, Giza in Egypt, and the Osireion at Abydos. Despite the geographic diversity of these monuments, they all share some common features – they were built in the prehistoric era; they were all associated with religious centers; they were all made from megalithic architecture; they were mostly exquisitely carved and manufactured (often bafflingly so); and last but certainly not least, all of these monuments were utterly devoid of inscription…The granite megaliths carved into a giant jigsaw puzzle at Cuzco, and the 1,000 tonne bricks that were being used at Baalbek, would stretch any modern stone mason’s imagination and skills to their limits….these temples were not dedicated to any one particular monarch, nor to any one particular god. They were, instead, dedicated to the observation and the study of the Universe – (Eden in Egypt)

Although equally magnificent temples and megaliths exist in Ireland, Scandinavia, North America, and Mexico, although entire lost cities are found beneath the oceans, and although the vast majority of words, place names, and personal names in the bible, are of Irish origin we would rather live with mysteries and unsolvable conundrums than face the actual truth. In almost every case where a major site exists, or where a great civilization existed, we find the same refrain from the modern inhabitants. Either we are told that “godlike strangers” erected the sites, or that technically superior semi-divine ancestors, of whom we now suspiciously find no trace, did it. Archaeologists are more than lax to explain who these foreigners or mysterious ancestors were. The world over, legends affirm that indigenous forebears were not the builders, astronomers, and healers. Investigators have habitually looked to every country except Ireland for their answers. It is almost comical to say that we can be certain that Ireland played a seminal role merely because the laws of exclusion are in its favor. All other countries have been studied and can be struck off as originators of civilization. So dare we now, at long last, face the truth that has lain in plain sight for so long? Dare we examine the evidence for the Irish origins of civilization and have done with the damnable conundrums?

…the ancient Egyptians were fully aware of the 25,920-year cycle of the precession of the equinoxes. The idea, however, that a nomadic group of hunter-gatherers about 5,000 to 6,000 years ago should suddenly within the space of a few hundred years (or even a millennium), from merely watching the night sky but without using any instrumentation, be able to quickly develop the requisite mathematical and scientific knowledge to verify such a hypothesis is patently ludicrous – John Gordon (Egypt: Child of Atlantis)

One of the most important finds within the land of Egypt occurred when the Egyptologist and archaeologist Professor Walter B. Emery (1903-1971) was excavating tombs at the necropolis of Saqqara, one of the oldest cities in the land. There Professor Emery discovered men with blond hair and fair complexions. These individuals were revered and honored by the Egyptians as specially endowed elite. Authors Vittorio Di Cesare and Adriano Forgione write about Emery’s enigmatic discoveries in their article Malta: Skulls of the Mother Goddess:

…the famous Egyptologist, author of “Archaic Egypt”…discovered the remains of individuals who lived in the pre-dynastic epoch. These presented a dolichocephalous skull, larger than that of the local ethnic group, fair hair and a taller, heavier build. Emery declared that this stock wasn’t indigenous to Egypt but had performed an important sacerdotal and governmental role in this country. This race kept its distance from the common people, blending only with the aristocratic classes and the scholar associated them with the Shemsu Hor, the “disciples of Horus”…The Shemsu Hor are recognized as the dominant sacerdotal caste in pre-dynastic Egypt (until approximately 3000 B.C.), being mentioned in the Turin papyrus and the list of the kings of Abydos.

Professor Emery wrote of his finds in his book, Archaic Egypt: Culture and Civilization in Egypt Five Thousand Years Ago:

Towards the end of the IV millennium B.C. the people known as the Disciples of Horus appear as a highly dominant aristocracy that governed entire Egypt. The theory of the existence of this race is supported by the discovery in the pre-dynastic tombs, in the northern part of Higher Egypt, of the anatomical remains of individuals with bigger skulls and builds than the native population, with so much difference to exclude any hypothetical common racial strain. The fusion of the two races must have come about in ages that concurred, more or less, with the unification of the two Egyptian Kingdoms…The racial origin of these invaders is not known and the route they took in their penetration of Egypt is equally obscure

…we find that at the dawn of the historic period Egypt was divided into the two rival kingdoms of the North and the South, both ruled by a royal house and aristocracy of the same race and both known traditionally as the “Followers of Horus” – the demigods of Manetho’s history

According to the ancient tablets, known as The History of Thoth: The Atlantean, the Shemsu Hor (or Disciples of Horus), were a race of enlighteners who dwelt on ten pre-diluvian islands. One of their magi was the god Thoth, known by the Greeks as Hermes, and by the Romans as Mercury:

Great were my people in the ancient days, great beyond the conception of the little people now around me; knowing the wisdom of old, seeking far within the heart of infinity knowledge that belonged to Earth’s youth. Wise were we with the wisdom of the Children of Light who dwelt among us. Strong were we with the power drawn from the eternal fire. And of all these, greatest among the children of men was my father, Thoth, keeper of the great temple, link between the Children of Light who dwelt within the temple and the races of men who inhabited the ten islands.

The term shemsu derives, most probably, from the Akkadian shamash meaning “serpent.” The word is very like the Irish Shamus or Seamus, or English James. We believe the term Hor (for Horus the falcon or hawk-headed god of the sun) represented the Ari or Aryans. The letter “H” was often used in the same way as “The” or as “Le” in French. Therefore, Har or Harri was “The Ari.” The eagle or hawk was the symbol of the sun and of the enlightened ones of old. As a symbol, it primarily and originally signified spiritual status. (The name Harris or Harrison, from har, meant “hawk” or “Son of the Hawk”). Expert on Egypt Ralph Ellis has found evidence supporting the idea that the Giza Plateau and its three great pyramids were perpetually protected by a special guard known as the Horites. These Horites, although disparaged in the bible, are believed to be associated with the mysterious city of Petra located near Mount Seir. Petra dates from a relatively late period but was probably built upon a more ancient site. Nearby are sophisticated irrigation systems and a strange serpent mound identical to those found in France and Britain. There can be little doubt that the Horites were descended from the ancient Shemsu Hor, the Disciples of Horus.

The word root Har signified the hawk, and the god Horus. The term is still employed today. A good example is the Air Force jet known as the “Harrier.” The first version of the war plane was even known as the “Hawker.”   As said, the root har or hor refers to Horus and the sun. Ellis maintains that this mysterious sect of specially appointed guards was despised by the Hyksos people who were none other than the Israelites of the bible (see Volume Two). He also maintains that one of the ancient names for Great Pyramid was Seir, a word that appears to connote the West (see Sera, Asur, Aser, Osiris, Abu Sir, and Syria, etc). If Mr. Ellis’ translations are correct, as we believe them to be, then could not Mt. Horeb of the bible refer to the pyramids of the desert rather than to some other ill-defined and spuriously remote location? Was the pyramid the mountain of light or, more correctly, the mountain of the men of light?

In the year 1907, the Egyptian government decided to raise the level of the great Aswan Dam, in Southern Egypt, by seven meters. The project meant the destruction, by flooding, of acres of land containing many burial grounds and tombs. A hurried examination of the bodies from some Nubian tombs was made by Sir Grafton Elliot Smith who soon discovered, to his amazement, that the skulls and bones of the bodies under examination were different from those of the inhabitants of both Nubia and Egypt, even though there were Egyptian characteristics to the physiognomy. In his book The Royal Mummies, published in 1912, Smith wrote of his strange alien finds:

The alien people present many striking features of contrast which sharply differentiate them from the population of Egypt and Nubia. In height they do not differ in any marked degree, but their crania are shorter and considerably broader than those of the indigenous people. The nose is much narrower, more prominent and high-bridged than that of the Egyptian or Nubian, and in comparison with the latter, the nasal spine is much more prominent.

Nobody knows just who these blue-eyed, fair-skinned people were, or even where they came from…Anthropologically, they were termed Caucasians – Gerald O’Farrell (The Tutankhamun Deception)

These people, Elliot Smith concluded, were more than intelligent enough to accomplish the amazing building feats that the modern world marvels at on the banks of the Nile – ibid

Queen Nefertiti – her daughter may be buried in Ireland   We believe that the decision to flood the sacred Nubian plains of the Northern Sudan was a clever ploy to conceal the burial grounds of the Western peoples who had influenced Egyptian culture. In ancient times Nubia was an independent region considered sacred by the Egyptians who thought of it as the realm of the gods. The Nile flowed down through the mountains of Nubia and so anyone buried in that area, by request or by tradition, were very esteemed.

The Caucasian features described by Sir Elliot Smith are to be seen on the face of Queen Nefertiti, her sister Mutnodjmet (wife of Pharaoh Heremheb), and her daughter Meritaten (Scota). Indeed, there is little doubt in our minds that Nefertiti and her family were of Irish ancestry. This explains why Scota, her eldest daughter, traveled to Ireland by way of Spain after the fall of Akhenaton’s corrupt dynasty and why her grave was found, not in Egypt, but in Ireland’s County Kerry.

When modern academics composed reference books about early Egyptian history, they scrupulously avoided mention of the impressive body of ancient evidence attesting to the celestial rulers of predynastic Egypt – Tony Bushby (The Secret in the Bible)

The twentieth prayer of the 141st chapter of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, is dedicated “to the Goddess greatly beloved, with red hair” – E. A. W. Budge (The Book of the Dead)

The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile – E. A. W. Budge (Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods)

Among the ancient crania from the Thebaid in the collection in the Department of Human Anatomy at Oxford, there are specimens which must unhesitatingly be considered to be those of Nordic type – L. H. Dudley Buxton (The Peoples of Asia)

Ancient Egypt, for instance, was essentially a penetration of Caucasoid racial elements into Africa – Robert Gayre (Miscellaneous Racial Studies)

The mummy was mostly unwrapped and on its back. Strands of reddish-blond hair lay on the floor beneath the bald head – Donald P. Ryan (description of find, by excavator of the tomb of Queen Hatshepsut)

There was a queen Nitocris, braver than all the men of her time, the most beautiful of all the women, blond-haired with rosy cheeks. By her, it is said, the third pyramid was reared, with the aspect of a mountain – Manetho (third century Greco-Egyptian historian’s description of 6th Dynasty queen Nitocris)

According to the Graeco-Roman authors Pliny the Elder, Strabo and Diodorus Siculus, the Third Pyramid was built by a woman named Rhodopis. When translated from the original Greek, her name means “rosy-cheeked” – Mary Sutherland

The first pharaoh of the first dynasty of Egypt, and founder of the great city of Memphis, King Menes is buried in Northern Ireland. Also known as Aha Men, and as Hor Aha (“Fighting Hawk”), king Menes was most likely a prestigious member of Egypt’s first civilization, the remnants of which were discovered by Professor Walter Emery, and founded by the Disciples of Horus the sun god.  In one ancient text, from his empty “tomb” discovered by Sir Flinders Petrie at Abydos in 1900, Menes is referred to as “King Manash…of the Sun Hawk Race.”

It is not surprising, therefore, that he should have wished to travel to Ireland, the original homeland of his ancestors.

Most pathetically tragic of all perhaps is the discovery that the hitherto unread long record inscribed on the great Ebony Label found in the “tomb” of Menes at Abydos in Upper Egypt, and written in the Sumerian script and language of his time, narrates in graphic and circumstantial detail how this great admiral and “world emperor” in his old age on “a voyage of exploration with his fleet” made the complete course to “The Furthest West Sunset Land in the Western Ocean” and there met his tragic death; and it states that his “tomb” in Egypt remained empty, and was merely a cenotaph…And the place-name of the island in the Far Western Ocean, which appears to read “Urani” suggests the place of his death and real tomb as “Erin” or Ireland – L. A. Waddell (Makers of Civilization in Race and History, 1929)

  An Egyptian woman with apparently Caucasian (Indo-European) ancestry.

The King Manash…of the Sunset (or Upper or Western) Waters and of their Lands and Oceans, The Ruler…of the Sun Hawk race, The Pharaoh, the deceased, the Commander-in-Chief of Ships….made the complete course to the End of the Sunset Land, going in ships. He completed the inspection of the Western Lands. He built there and holding (or possession) in Urani Land. At the Lake of the Peak, Fate pierced him by a hornet (or wasp)…This bored tablet set up of hanging wood is dedicated to his memory – (From the Funerary Label of King Menes. Translated by Professor L. A. Waddell)

The final resting place of Menes was discovered by Professor Waddell at Knockmany (Knock Menes) in the Southern part of County Tyrone not far from Lough Erne. Inscriptions found on boulder stones at the site were in Sumerian script and were identical to those found at Menes’ empty Egyptian tomb site. Professor Waddell wrote of his unique and momentous finds:

In particular the photograph of one of the stones contains the same monogram of the name “Urani,” and is written by the same signs as on the ebony label, but on a larger scale; and the realistic pictograph of the animal which caused the death of Menes in Urani represented it as a hornet – (Makers of Civilization in Race and History)

…I have demonstrated elsewhere that representations of this “End of the Sunset Land” occur in Ireland, engraved on prehistoric cup-marked stones at New Grange on the Boyne River, near Drogheda, which are essentially replicas of the same pictograms as in the Early Sumerian and Hittite sacred seals – L. A. Waddell (Egyptian Civilization: Its Sumerian Origins and true Chronology)

  Queen and Pharaoh Hatshepsut, of the 18th dynasty.

Rameses III (1186–1155 BC). Note the features of this 20th Dynasty Pharaoh.

King Menes of Sumeria and Egypt is referred to in the Hindu Puranas as Asa Manj“the Far Shooter,a title that reminds us of the biblical Saul and David, and also of the Irish sun god Lugh “the Long Arm,” wielder of the great lance. The term Asa meant “strong” or “valiant.” In the Hindu Mahabharata Menes is Manasyu, whose title was Prabhu.

This term comes from prahu or parahu, or paraa, the possible origin of pharaoh. The Hindi word meant “chief” or “father.” Menes’ identification with the hawk god Horus is suggestive since Horus was often referred to as the “blue-eyed” god.

Tea Tephi, an Egyptian queen, lies near Tara, a location some believe to be named after her. The name Tara is believed to derive from Temair or Temor meaning “mound of Tea.” However, it probably derives from T-Ari, after Ari or Eri, the supreme goddess of the Druids. Mummified Barbary apes have been discovered at Navan in Ireland and entries concerning places in Ireland have been found in Egyptian papyri. British-Israelites declare the tomb of the prophet Jeremiah to be in Ireland, at Lough Crew in County Meath, and believe him to have brought to Tara the coronation stone (“Stone of Fal”) upon which Irish chieftains were crowned. However, when anecdotes such as this are broached, scholars are quick to say that there “may have been” commerce between Egypt, Phoenicia, and Ireland after all. The majority of this commerce is dated to between 600 BC and 700 AD.

Jeremiah fled thither after the siege of Jerusalem, carrying away the treasures of the temple; such as the ark, the sceptre of David, the Urim and Thummim, and others. Some persons at this day affect to believe that in the Hill of Tara might yet be found these memorials of Judaism, and hope to recover thence David’s harp, carried to Ireland by Jeremiah and the Princess Scota, daughter of Pharaoh – James Bonwick (Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions, 1894)

A red-haired corpse was found dating from the pre-dynastic period, 3,300 BC, nick-named “Ginger.” One of Horus’ titles was “Horus of the blue eyes” (E. A. W. Budge),

Is it really far-fetched to suppose Egyptian theology, particularly that known in Theban Upper Egypt, to be Irish in origin? We do not think so. As Barry Fell and others have shown, the Irish traveled to America long before other groups, and were plying their trade and building settlements there hundreds of years before the arrival of Columbus.

Maat (Ma’at) – Mother of Thoth, she was the goddess of mathematics, geometry, harmony, balance, and primarily of justice. She was also known as Meri, from which we get the biblical Mary, mother of Jesus. Ma’at was always considered the Mother the pharaoh who officiated for her and who embodied her principles.

An Irish name for Druidism is Maithis, and that includes the Egyptian dual Thoth called Mat – Gerald Massey

  We can surmise that these historical “Celts” who visited the Americas were merely following in the footsteps of those masters of the sea who had ventured forth in earlier times. Their mounds and megaliths bear inscriptions and dedications to the gods of light. Many Algonquian Indian words are identical not only to Gaelic words, but Egyptian ones. The image of the Egyptian “Eye of Ra” has been found near to images of the Irish stag-horned god Cernunnos. Prehistoric Irish designs have been discovered in Oklahoma and Florida, and proof of sea voyages between Europe, Britain, and South and North America has come to light revealing just how inaccurate are the official records of history. That the Irish, the French Gauls, the Phoenicians, and the Egyptians, frequented the East coast of North America, and that they were in close relation to one another proves that they had close dealings in Europe and Asia. All doubt upon the matter is dispelled once we objectively examine the evidence.

The eye of the great god, The eye of the god of glory, They eye of the king of hosts, The eye of the king of life, Shining upon us through time and tide, Shining upon us gently and without stint. Glory to thee, O splendid Sun, Glory to thee O Sun, face of the god of life – (Ancient Irish Hymn)

…Egypt is highly unusual, in that the early craftsmanship and construction from the Old Kingdom are the finest and the quality and dimensions of each monument reduces from then on throughout the following millennia – Ralph Ellis (Eden in Egypt)

…these temples were not dedicated to any one particular monarch, nor to any one particular god. They were, instead, dedicated to the observation and the study of the Universe. The original theology and ritual of the megalithic priesthood demanded that there were no idols, no imagery and no inscriptions, as the design of these monuments was not supposed to give away the identity of the architects or builders – ibid

After a close study of Egyptian relics and paintings in museums and private collections, and after a perusal of the works of leading Egyptologists and excavators, researcher Mary Sutherland, who was unable to account for what she discovered, managed to catalog a few key examples concerning the anomaly of the Western European presence in the land of the Nile:

Only the mummies of a very few pharaohs have survived to the 20th century, but a large proportion of these are blond

Grafton Smith mentions the distinct red hair of the 18th dynasty mummy Henutmehet

The Egyptians have left us many paintings and statues of blonds and redheads. Amenhotep III’s tomb painting shows him as having light red hair. Also, his features are quite Caucasian

A farm scene from around 2000 B.C., in the tomb of the nobleman Meketre shows a redhead

The tomb of Menna (18th Dynasty) at Western Thebes shows blond girls

The god Horus is usually depicted as white. He is very white in the Book of the Dead, of Lady Cheritwebeshet (21st dynasty), found in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo

The eye of Horus, the so-called “Wedjat Eye,” is always blue

The Greek author Plutarch, in the 22nd chapter of his De Iside et Osiride, states that the Egyptians thought Horus to be fair-skinned, and the god Seth to be of a ruddy complexion

The mummies of Rameses II and Prince Yuaa have fine silky yellow hair. The mummy of another pharaoh, Thothmes II, has light chestnut-colored hair. Microscopic examinations showed that the hair roots contained natural red pigments and that during his younger days, Rameses II had been a redhead

A very striking painting of a yellow-haired man hunting from a chariot can be found in the tomb of Userhet, Royal Scribe of Amenophis II. The yellow-haired man is Userhet. The same tomb has paintings of blond soldiers

The tomb of Menna also has a wall painting showing a blond man supervising two dark-haired workers scooping grain.

Time-Life books put out a volume called Rameses II, the Great. It has a good picture of the blond mummy of Rameses II. Another picture can be found in the book X-Raying the Pharaohs…the picture on the jacket cover…shows his yellow hair

The funerary stele (inscribed stone slab) of priest Remi clearly shows him as having red hair

A painting of the mother of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (18th Dynasty), reveals that she had blond hair, blue eyes, and a rosy complexion

Princess Ranofri, a daughter of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III (18th dynasty), is depicted as a blond in a wall painting that was recorded in the 19th century, by the Italian Egyptologist Ippolito Rosellini

In 1929 archaeologists discovered the mummy of fifty year-old Queen Meryet-Amun (another daughter of Tuthmosis III); the mummy has wavy, light-brown hair

Paintings of blonds and redheads have been found among the tombs at Thebes

Amenhotep III looks northern European in his statue

A blond woman was painted at the tomb of Djeser-ka-ra-seneb in Thebes

A model of a ship from about 2500 B.C. is manned by five blond sailors

The god Nuit was painted as white and blond

Two statues from about 2570 B.C., found in the tombs at Medum, show Prince Rahotep and his wife Nofret. He has light green stones for eyes. She has violet-blue stones

A painting from Iteti’s tomb at Saqqara shows a very Nordic-looking man with blond hair

A painting at the tomb of Meresankh III at Giza, from about 2485 B.C., shows white skin and red hair

Paintings of people with red hair and blue eyes were found at the tomb of Bagt in Beni Hassan. Many other tombs at Beni Hassan have paintings of individuals with blond and red hair as well as blue eyes

An article in a leading British anthropological journal states that many mummies have dark reddish-brown hair.  Professor Vacher De Lapouge described a blond mummy found at Al Amrah, which he says has the face and skull measurements of a typical Gaul or Saxon

The book History of Egyptian Mummies mentions a mummy with reddish-brown hair

A blond mummy was found at Kawamil along with many chestnut-colored ones

The very first pharaoh, Narmer (also known as Menes), appears to be very Caucasian

The ever-important Isis was in fact one of these goddesses known by the title Meri/Mery…That goddesses were beloved or Mery is obvious from an enigmatic spell…that invokes “the Goddess greatly beloved with red hair” or “Her who is greatly beloved, the red-haired” – D. M. Murdock (Jesus in Egypt)

The mummy of a young Amarna prince, which was discovered in an annex of the tomb of Amenhotep II, sports a very long, luxuriant side-lock of hair…Strangely enough, this young prince was not only “hairy,” but his hair was also a ruddy-brown color – Ralph Ellis (Tempest and Exodus)

…many of the officials, courtiers, and priests, representing the upper class of Egyptian society but not the royalty, looked strikingly like modern Europeans, especially long-headed ones – Professor Carleton Coon (The Races of Europe)

Pharaoh Userkaf – (2465-2458 BCE) was an important king of the 5th dynasty. His title was “His Soul is Strong” His features are distinctly Caucasian. Notably, Userkaf was the first king of Egypt to begin the building of solar temples to the god Ra, The most striking are at Saqqara and Abu Sir. Userkaf’s origins are considered uncertain. He may have been the son of the high priest of Memphis or even of Heliopolis where some of the grandest solar temples stood. Egyptian artwork and sculpture reached a peak during his regency.   Pharaoh Khefren (Khafra) – of the fourth dynasty (2650-2632 BC). He was the successor of Khufu who is believed to have been the pharaoh who commissioned the building of the great pyramid at Giza. Khefren’s features are clearly not African but Caucasian.   Profile of Khefren – His was the face on the Egyptian sphinx that stands upon the Giza Plateau. We believe the exquisite sculpture was deliberately defaced to conceal the pharaoh’s aquiline Caucasian features. A solar cult dignitary, his title was “He who appears like Ra.”
Pharaoh Menkaure – of the early fourth dynasty. Beside him stands an unnamed queen. Note the couple’s Western features.   Queen Kiya, of the 18th dynasty. Wife of Akhenaton, and possibly also of Pharaoh Heremheb. Her thin lips and aquiline appearance suggest that she was of Caucasian racial type.   Visage of queen Kiya. Her ancestry is considered a “mystery.” She was Akhenaton’s favorite wife, and most likely the mother of Tutankhamun. Her name Kiyah is close to the Hebrew Khiyah, meaning life. When spelt as Khavah the name gives the biblical “Eve.”
Ahmose I – first pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, and conqueror of the Hyksos. His features are conspicuously Caucasian.   Ahmose Nefertari – the wife of Ahmose I…   …She is depicted with black skin for symbolic reasons and not because she was naturally black. The color was the symbol of Egypt or Khem the “black land.” The color symbolized the fertility and antiquity of the land. Black was also the color associated with Amen, the chief god worshipped by the pharaohs of this era. Amun or Amen was the hidden or invisible one. Nefertari was entitled “Second Prophet of Amen.” The idea of blackness was adopted by the Masons. One of the pillars of the temple of Solomon (Sol Amen) was black in color. Nefertari’s name contains the term tari, which is distinctly Irish.

To this very day Christians end prayers with the word Amen. This word is Egyptian for sure, and it referred to the most ancient sun god Amen Ra, primarily worshipped at Thebes. Interestingly, however, the word Amen (from Amentet) meant “Western,” or “Western side.”

  It also refers to the “shadow land” or “underworld,” that is to the realms of the dead. This symbolism arose not only from the fact that the sun perceptibly sank into darkness in the West but from the racial memories of what had occurred in the North-Western lands that had once been veritable wastelands of death and decay. So, the very name of the chief solar god of Egypt actually signified the ancestral lands of the Western hemisphere.

The hieroglyphic for Amen was a straight vertical pole (like the capital letter “I”) topped with a small sun disk with rays. This revealing hieroglyphic of Amen was also known as men, meaning “monument,” “mountain,” or simply “block of stone.”

We suggest that this glyph referred to the ancestral homelands in the West that housed the great and distinctive megalithic temples of stone that stood vertically in the way described by the Egyptian Amen hieroglyphic. As scholars of Celtic history will be quick to discern, the image of the sun rising above a tall ithyphallic stone perfectly describes the spectacle occurring to this day at many solar temples in England and Ireland, specifically at Stonehenge and Newgrange.

At Stonehenge the sun rises above the famous “heel” stone. The word heel comes from hele or helios, meaning sun. The hieroglyphic expressed that Amen, the sun-god, and his priesthood, and worship originated in Western lands. That these lands were the “end place,” where the sun god rested every evening was the reason why prayers ended with the word Amen, to signify termination. One of the words for prayer was “orison,” that clearly resembles “horizon.” Again, the reference is to both geography and Astro-Theology.  

That the Amen hieroglyphic should connote the ancient Megalithic sun temples of England and Ireland is not so strange once it is realized that Stonehenge and other important British sites have conclusively been shown to be geometrically and geomantically aligned to the great pyramid at Giza. We surmise that certain prime Megalithic sites of Britain are also aligned with Egyptian temples, and that the secret theosophy of Irish Druidism was central to the theology of the Theban Amenists, as well as to the sun priests of Lower Egypt. The Egyptians simply duplicated the solar symbolism and geometric principles of the Western Megaliths with their great pyramid. Amen, the sun, rose above their “mountain” of stone at Giza in the same way as it did in the original Western homelands of Amen.

Osiris enthroned, and riding through the underworld on his solar boat. Osiris was the god of the earth and of the dead. He represented the natural cycles of birth and death. His “dismemberment” recalled the cataclysms and paroxysms that had visited the world and particularly the North-Western Hemisphere. The root of his name, sir, meant the “West.” Indeed, one name for Osiris was Wesir, which is remarkably close the present spelling for the word West. It is our belief that the entire cult of Osiris was transported to Egypt from Britain. Wesir (Osiris) is known to have replaced Khentamentiu whose name meant “Foremost of the Westerners.” As Isis (Ast) represented the East, so did her husband (Asir) represent the West. Scholars accept without question that the Greeks and Romans fused several deities together to form individual members of their own pantheons. Serapis, Dionysus, Mithras, and even Zeus, were composites of archaic Egyptian and Sumerian gods. The Egyptians were not above the same plagiarization. Many of their gods and goddesses were fusions of more ancient figures. This is particularly true of Hathor, Ptah, Osiris, and Horus. Scholars readily accept that the Greeks and Romans borrowed their gods from Egypt. They are, however, not as receptive to the idea that the Egyptians had done something similar. The Western origins of Egyptian cultural elements is not to be broached or considered. Osiris on his boat gives us the visual impression that this god was indeed from beyond the sea, He frequented the “Underworld” and that was not, as we are meant to believe, merely a conceptual realm. It was a physical region. It was the ancestral lands of the North-West ruined by natural upheaval. It was the land of the setting sun, of darkness and death, into which the sun (Osiris) retired (or returned) at day’s end. The enemy of Osiris and his son Horus was the serpentine Typhon. This is where we get the word Typhoon. The serpent Typhon, or Apophis, was a figurative analog for the destructive force of nature. Osiris traveled West every night to sacrificially enter into combat with the evil serpent and ensure that such incomprehensible cataclysm should never reoccur. This fact is further reinforced when we remember that the main symbol of Osiris was the Djed Pillar. The fallen column is shown being ritually reset in its vertical position. This rite of lifting the pillar of Osiris into upright position encapsulated the same idea of which we speak. It represented the restoration of order and stability after a time of worldwide calamity. (See the chapter on Comyns Beaumont for more on this subject). Osiris was associated, and even fused, with the Old Kingdom god Seker (or Sokar). Seker was depicted as a mummified deity, falcon or hawk-headed, and with green skin that represented rebirth. Of course, this green coloring parallels the Irish Herne or Cernunnos, god of nature. Seker was often shown hovering on wings above the body of the deceased. He was, therefore, the basis of the Christian Holy Spirit.


  Anubis – one of the oldest gods of Egypt and closely associated with Osiris and Horus. Some traditions have him as the brother of Horus and son of Nephthys the sister of Isis. He was largely based on the most ancient Jackal-headed god known as Khenta-Mentiu, worshipped in Upper Egyptian cities such as Abydos and Saqqara. Suggestively, this name means “Foremost of the Westerners.” Mentiu or Mentu was a hawk-headed god thought to have been the early precursor of Horus. His title was the “Nomad,” which implies a distant god of foreign origin. We conclude that many of Egypt’s predynastic gods had Western origins. Egyptians understood this Anubis as lord of the Western lands and hemisphere. This also meant he was the ruler of the dead. Egyptians associated the Underworld with the lands beyond the Western horizon (“Zone of Horus”), not only because the sun set there but because of the terrible ruin that had been suffered by the lands of the North-West.

Those who still find it impossible, or far-fetched, to suppose that Egyptian religion and culture was influenced by foreigners from Western lands should bear in mind that historians have already accepted that Western Indo-Europeans (or Aryans) contributed cultural elements to Northern India. They should bear in mind that the Moslems of Persia and Yemen brought to India highly sophisticated cultural elements as they established their Mughal dynasty, and that Buddhism, born in India, moved Eastward to dramatically influence and enrich Chinese culture. They had best remember the fact that during the early centuries of the Christian era, up until the Middle Ages, Culdean monks traveled throughout Europe from Ireland in their capacity as educators of nobility. Yes, Marco Polo could travel to China, as all agree he did. Abaris could make his way from Ireland to the Athenian school of Pythagoras, and Apollonius of Tyana could travel to India to locate the schools and ashrams of the Brahmins, and the ancient Irish “Scots” could travel Eastward and settle in Scotland giving that country its distinctive name. Such cases are not doubted. But bring up the question of traversal in the opposite direction and one is met with a wall of resistance as if one has contradicted or challenged one of society’s most inviolable taboos.

It has taken centuries for academia to begrudgingly entertain even this simple provable idea although, ultimately, it is still tantamount to academic heresy to pronounce Egypt to be the cradle of civilization and the originator of Christian theology. Nonetheless, academics will sooner muse over and ratify commerce from East to West than it will endorse traversal from West to East. Indeed, this rarer kind of speculation, asserted first by Comyns Beaumont, Anna Wilkes, and Conor Mac Dari, is quite taboo. Regardless, the reason why pharaohs and pharaohs’ daughters are found interned in the far off land of Ireland is because Ireland was an ancestral homeland to which they were returning. It was from there that their forefathers had come bearing the knowledge that enabled Egypt’s fine civilization to form and which initiated the construction of the Great Pyramid and Sphinx. No other agency, not even an Egyptian one, can rationally claim responsibility for their construction.  

These great edifices stand unclaimed. The world endures a mystery concerning their origins and marvels at their majesty. But again, we submit that the mystery exists in lieu of the truth that should be known had it not been suppressed. The claimant now stands in the shadows of history rather than in the spotlight. Men have been conditioned to look for answers in the wrong places. When we look to the right places and to the right history, we will have our answers, but not before.
