110 archeological sites discovered in Jamrud

About 110 important archeological sites have been discovered in Jamrud Tehsil of Pakistan’s Khyber Agency tribal region, some of which are said to be 30,000 years old.

Archaeologists from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Archaeological Department, in collaboration with the Khyber Agency’s political administration, have completed a preliminary survey of Jamrud, a tehsil in the tribal region, in two and a half months. Khan said that the area is full of archeological sites and after regular excavations, very important artefacts can be found here.

Initially, traces of human remains have been found in 110 of these sites. In addition, walls or buildings, tunnels and Buddhist stupas have been discovered. This route in Khyber Agency has been used by Alexander the Great and Buddhists, as well as several Muslim invaders from Central Asia. The Khyber Pass has served as a bridge between Central and South Asia and a major trade route.

Khalid Mahmood, Khyber Agency’s political agent, told that Khyber Agency was historically important, which is why he took an interest in it and completed the survey. He said that there are still very important archeological sites in Khyber Agency. In addition to key US and British leaders, the great boxer Muhammad Ali has visited the region. The war on terror has affected several areas of Khyber Agency and several military operations have been carried out against militants here.

Officials say conditions are better now than ever before and if these historic sites are opened to the public after excavations, it will boost tourism and improve the economy in the area, Abdul Samad Khan said. Recent preliminary discoveries have also uncovered artifacts from the British period, including 34 tunnels and a railway line that is an important heritage site but has not been given any importance. In India, the track along this railway line is declared a World Heritage Site.

He said that the artefacts found in Khyber Agency are older than Mahenjo Daro and Harappa because Takht Bhai Mahenjo Daro is two thousand and five thousand years old while the artefacts of Jamrud are some thirty thousand years old. The first survey in Asia was conducted in the British era, but despite efforts at the time, they could not conduct the survey in the British era due to the security situation.

He further said that even after the formation of Pakistan, no attention was paid to this. The present political administration paid attention to this and the services of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Archaeological Department were sought which provided technical assistance. That is why such artifacts have not yet been discovered in the tribal areas.

Archaeologists claim that they have succeeded in finding the answer to one of the most complex problems in the construction of the pyramids of Egypt.

The question was how in ancient times the Egyptians moved more than 1.5 million tons of limestone from one place to another to build the pyramids of Egypt.

According to a new study, to do so outside Cairo, the Egyptians built boats specifically for the purpose of transporting the rocks. The new study also found that four thousand years ago, 2550 How was the pyramid of King Khufu built in BC?

Experts have long known that some of the stones used in the construction of the pyramids were extracted from Tora, eight miles from Giza, while granite was brought from 500 miles away, but researchers agree. It was not how they brought stones.

But a new documentary on the Egyptian pyramids on Britain’s Channel Four states that archaeologists discovered a papyrus manuscript, the structure of a boat and a waterway near the pyramids four years ago. New insights into how the Egyptians built the pyramids of Egypt have emerged. Archaeologist Pierre Tel, who spent the last four years trying to understand the papyrus manuscript, says: It’s a manuscript. ‘

According to Pierre Tell, the man who wrote it was named Marier and was the leader of a group of 40 sailors whose job it was to carry rocks from the waterways along the Nile.

It is believed that over a period of two decades, about 2.3 million stones were brought to the site of the pyramids in this way.

“We have identified the area and the passage from which the rocks were brought to the Giza field,” said Mark Lehner, a 30-year Egyptian excavation and research expert.
