Proof of the Vedic heritage of the Ancient Egyptians

Wouldn't you say that this article definately points to a vedic origin for egypt, as the use of garlands are very common in the vedic tradition (although I am aware of tons of other more interesting correlation between the Egyptian and Vedic traditions, this one definately adds to it!):


Ancient garland in Egyptian tomb

It was found in the last of seven coffins which archaeologists had hoped would contain the mummies of royal queens or even Tutankhamun's mother.

Researchers and media had been invited into the chamber, near Tutankhamun's tomb, to watch the coffin's opening. <!-- E SF -->

The chief curator of Cairo's Egyptian Museum said the surprise find was "even better" than discovering a mummy.

"It's very rare - there's nothing like it in any museum. We've seen things like it in drawings, but we've never seen this before in real life - it's magnificent," she said.

Experts say ancient Egyptian royals often wore garlands entwined with gold strips around their shoulders in both life and death.

The burial chamber was the first to be discovered in the Valley of the Kings since Tutankhamun's tomb more than 80 years ago and was found by chance.

It is the 63rd tomb to be discovered since the valley was first mapped in the 18th century, and was unexpectedly found only five metres away from King Tutankhamun's.

However, the chamber's discovery did disprove the widely accepted belief that there were no tombs left to find in the Valley of the Kings.

The Valley of the Kings, near the city of Luxor in southern Egypt, was used for burials for around 500 years from 1540BC onwards.

I have read in the Srimad Bhagavatam that Srila Prabhupada said in a purport when Lord Parasarama chastised the ksatriya order many times over some of those ksatriyas fled. Egypt and Europe were settled by ksatriyas fleeing reprisal from Lord Parasarama.
