Filed under: Alex Michael Bonnici,Ancient Egypt,Archaeology,Egyptian Archaeology — ralphbuttigieg @ 7:05 am

This is the second episode of a new historical documentary series probing the secrets of Ancient Egypt. The Scorpion King was a mythical Egyptian ruler who predated the pharaohs. Recent developments, such as the excavation of the king’s tomb, have revealed surprising new details about early Egyptian civilisation.

Scorpion, also King Scorpion or Scorpion II refers to the second of two kings so-named of Upper Egypt during the Protodynastic Period.

The only pictorial evidence of his existence is the so-called Scorpion Macehead that was found in the Main deposit by archaeologists James E. Quibell and Frederick W. Green in a temple at Nekhen.
