        I’ve seen that picture numerous times in books. It’s a picture of Egyptians and their nearest neighbors.Those four people represent different nations. Only the Brown guy on the end is Egyptian. The other 3 guys are Berber, Nubian and Middle eastern respectively. Basically they probably looked like Modern day Ethiopians and Eritreans.

          I figured as much, I was just wanted you to clarify. I’ve read that Egypt has its roots in what they would have considered “Northern” Egypt” where Nubia and Ta-Seti meet. I’ve also read that because of Egypt’s long history, asking what ethnicity the Egyptians were is tantamount to asking what Americans will be if we persist for 5 millennia. It was certainly more multi-ethnic especially in it’s later days when it was conquered by the Greeks, who one could argue weren’t Egyptian, much like most White Americans aren’t Native American Indians. I’ve also read that the people who did the DNA research never released Tut’s ethnicity and that the claim for him being Western European came from a Swiss DNA lab who saw a snippet of Tut’s DNA on a television show they watched about it and analyzed it. This has been criticized greatly as unscientific and flawed. From what I’ve read, the actual people who did the test only did tests that would tell who his true Mother and Father was, not necessarily to show his ethnicity, and that such data couldn’t necessarily be extrapolated unless another type of test was done.

          The Ancient Egyptians believed their ancestors came from somewhere around Somalia. Heroditous describes them as having dark skin and woolly hair. The Bible has them as descendents of Ham along with Kushites (Nubians).

          In it’s history Egypt was invaded by Hittites, Nubians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs so it would have been much more diverse in it’s latter days. Modern day Egyptians have all these influences in their ancestry.

          Ta-Seti is another word for Nubia. It means Land of the Bow in Egyptian. The Kushites as they were originally called were expert archers and often entire archery units were hired as mercenaries by the Egyptians.

        The pic above is a mix of 2 different scenes from 2 different tombs. These are reproductions because the originals are to long to take in one photo. The original in the tomb of Ramses III shows the African and Egyptian as the same. I tried to post a link to an article to better explain but it want allow me to. Too much to type here.
