Kushite Invasion of Egypt in Dynasty 17

As I mentioned in the previous post, I have some more to add to one of the articles mentioned there, specifically the story of the discovery of a text at el-Kab detailing a Kushite invasion of Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period.

Here are some more internet references to this story:

1) A story that mostly repeats the London Times article.
2) A Reference in Wikepedia that quotes from some scholarly articles on this topic.
3) A story in Egypt's daily newspaper (Al-Ahram).

Somehow I was not aware of this discovery, even though it was made six years ago. I will have still more to say about this discovery in a later post.
