"...leaving Egypt under the control of a satrapy." ought to be "...leaving Egypt under the control of a satrap" as a satrapy is just the territory governed by a satrap Basedhegel (talk) 12:41, 29 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ancient egyptians[edit]

What was unique about the agricultural practices? Why was the river nile so important to the egyptians? What did ac8ent egyptians think what happened after they die? What is the process? What is mummification all about? Why did the mummificate? What was the egyptians writing style? Where there diffrent writing styles or just one? Ehy were some animals holy and wich animals? What technology innovations did the egyptians create?

I hope you have these questions next time in an article about the acient egyptians

Honestly it sounds like you just picked out a bunch of sections from the navbox at random to ask about. Agricultural practices is section 2.4 ; Nile river is still 2.4 ; Religious beliefs is 4.5 ; Mummification is 4.6 ; Literature is 3.4 ; Writing styles is 3.3 ; Technological innovations is 6 to 6.5. Most of these have their own dedicated articles and those are linked under the appropriate header. These questions were considered. You'd have to be far more specific as to what information you are after for any more cogent a reply. Mr rnddude (talk) 11:13, 28 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inclusion of Keita, Gourdine Publication[edit]

The genetic evidence cited in this academic source was rejected on previous grounds because it was stated that the source was not published in a peer-reviewed publication. However, the authors list the journal ANKH and publication date 2019-2020 in the footnote sections. (The journal Ankh and the publication series n28-29)

This is the journal link (ANKH Journal of Egyptology and African Civilisations):

The article is listed here:

Hence, the genetic evidence provided should be included in this article and related articles.WikiUser4020 (talk) 19:58, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As I’ve said at Talk:Ramesses III I see no evidence of peer review. Doug Weller talk 20:23, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The publication is also featured in another journal, Cahiers Caribéens d'Egyptologie, this is co-founded by one of the contributors, Anselin and is listed as peer-reviewed in the Keita study. The journal also publishes Gourdine's 2020 article here in issue n24/25 (2020):

The Keita study states:
