'' advocate, in opposition to the Black Egypt hypothesis the traditional Brown Egypt hypothesis. I began this discussion with Mr T because I was shocked to read in "Egypt: Child of Africa" that Egyptians of all periods always portrayed themselves as black Africans''
Well my hypothesis that is backed up my experiances being an egyptain myself,and living in Egypt and knowing it not form a tourist experiance is that Upper egyptains in my opinion wopuld be considered black.
I mean where the ancient egyptains bantu,no,but in a sesne I would consider them to be black Africans Since even black Africans such as nigerians and others are not actually black,except maybe for bantu populations in central Africa. In general the Ancient egyptain population apperaed to be dark brown,and it is my opinion that much of the population of modern day egypt are probally lighter than much of the ancient egyptain population.
However I must point out that many times when women painted themselves yellow,this was not always her natural skin complexion but at times was symbolic. If you look in Merotic tombs in northern sudan you will see that women there also painted their skin yellowish complexion,and cearly the people of meroe were black.
By the way did I mention that I was from Egypt myself.
