The ancient city complex of Abydos is located about 450 kilometers south of Cairo, Egypt, and is considered by many to be one of the most important historical sites associated to Ancient Egypt. It also houses a collection of inscriptions popularly known as the “Abydos Carvings” that has sparked debate among archaeologists and historians.
Inside the Temple of Pharaoh Seti I are a series of carvings that look a lot like futuristic helicopters and spaceships. The helicopter is particularly recognizable, which has raised questions about how it could exist in such a technologically distant past. Naturally, every enthusiast of the UFO phenomenon points to these images as proof that we have been visited by other, more advanced civilizations.
Yn yr un modd, mae pob Eifftolegydd confensiynol yn mynd i drafferth mawr i egluro nad yw'r lluniadau enigmatig hyn yn ddim mwy na chanlyniad hieroglyffau hŷn a gafodd eu plastro a'u hail-gerfio, felly pan gwympodd y plastr yn ddiweddarach, newidiodd y delweddau. O dan y plastr, fe wnaethant ailymddangos yn unig fel cymysgedd cyd-ddigwyddiadol rhwng yr hen ddelweddau a'r delweddau newydd.
Crëwyd graffeg gymhleth iawn i ddangos sut y digwyddodd y broses. Ar ben hynny, mae archeolegwyr traddodiadol wedi datblygu’r hen ddadl, gan na ddarganfuwyd hofrenyddion na pheiriannau hedfan eraill erioed yn ninasoedd hynafol yr Aifft, na allai’r arteffactau hyn fod wedi bodoli erioed.
Yn ddiweddar, bu rhai heriau manwl a chlyfar iawn i'r theori mai dim ond sgil-gynnyrch clipio oedd y delweddau hyn. Y cyntaf yw bod Teml Seti I yn adeiladwaith pwysig iawn a byddai'r defnydd o blastr wedi bod yn anghysondeb, gan fod yr Eifftiaid yn arbenigwyr ar lenwi â math arbennig o dywodfaen a oedd yn llawer mwy cadarn a gwydn.
The re-sculpting theory is also being examined and recent practical experiments cannot duplicate the effect described by conventional experts.
Some independent researchers believe that the item layout has a strong and precise relationship with the Golden Proportion concept, and at this point, it becomes quite interesting that the original carvings could be covered, re-sculpted and still lines up with a coincident set of perfect measurements and proportions, a feat simply unbelievable.
Though this is very fascinating to imagine that ancient Egyptians could really fly in a strange futuristic ship or they just had witnessed something they couldn’t explain and carved it into stone as a record. But we have never found a concrete evidence to support this extraordinary imagination/theory. Perhaps time will give us the correct answer, in the meantime, the mystery persists and the debate continues.
