During the Ice Age, when there was much more rainfall in the middle latitudes, in regions such as Egypt, the rivers, such as the Nile, flowed with much more volume, the Nile having been about twice as deep and four times as wide (in many places) during Old Kingdom Egypt, when the best and biggest pyramids were being built, when a channel of the Nile branched off to the northwest to feed the Fayoum (Piom meaning “the sea”), which was a huge lake, about 30 miles east to west by 20 miles south to north, with the outlet channel returning then to the Nile downstream near Dahshur, which is about 50 miles south of Giza, that huge lake at that time during Old Kingdom Egypt about five miles from the mainstream of the Nile, separated by a low ridge.
In the desert, about 20 miles west of the Nile, on the northern paleoshoreline of the Old Kingdom Lake Fayoum, have been recently discovered ruins of a “neolithic” city, described by Zahi Hawwas of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities as resembling Roman and Greek stone block cities, with dressed limestone block walls, often with terracota finishes, and sytems of gridded paved streets, so they call that “neolithic?” And this city was surely on the Ice Age Lake Fayoum shoreline, but now, its ruins are about five miles from the remnant lake, which is relatively tiny now, with no outlet back to the Nile, and receiving water from the Nile from the southeast only with the Nile’s springtime flood. But during the Ice Age, during Old Kingdom Egypt, the Nile flowed at a more consistent and much higher level, contantly flowing into the Fayoum Depression, whose overflow returned to the Nile downstream near Dahshur.
Hawwas and his crew say the city is from circa 5000 B.C., because that is when they think the Fayoum was last filled year ’round by Nile river water, but yet, they say the city’s ruins are like those of Rome and Greece, true cities, with granaries, shops, temples, and fortifications, all of dressed limestone blocks and teracotta, true Bronze Age structures, actually built during Old Kingdom Pharonic Egypt, which began circa 2300 B.C., when the Great Pyramid and the other biggies began to be built, along with this city which probably was anciently named Aushim (gold/sun people) was built, when ancient Egypt received perhaps 50 inches of rain per year rather than the few which it now receives.
How could structures as sophisticated as classical Greece’s and Rome’s have been built 4,000 years before those cultures, and 2,500 years before Old Kingdom Egypt began? And since mainstream scientists say the Ice Age ended circa 8000 B.C., why doesn’t Hawwas say the ruins date from back then? (After all, that is when the Fayoum should have last been filled to it’s maximum, when Karanis would have been on its shoreline.) So you can see that the mainstream scientists’ timeline for ancient history and the end of the Ice Age does not jibe with this evidence, but when you consider that Old Kingdom Egypt collapsed by a great drying out, as described in the Ipuwer Papyrus from circa 1400 B.C. (when the Exodus occurred), you see that was the time of the end of the Ice Age, when the shoreline of Lake Fayoum began to recede away from the city of Karanis, as the region turned to desert.
