Book Review
Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

I’ve always been a bit fascinated by the Land of the Pyramids. Katanga A. Bong begins by discussing the beginnings of civilizations. He purports that man begin in South America rather than Africa. I am certainly not an anthropologist however, his arguments seemed well thought out and plausible.

Ancient was an amazing and yet frightening place. Legends abound in ancient Egypt. So do the scientific achievements and cultural accomplishments. There was a fondness for human sacrifice.

He continued by discussing the history of Africa with an emphasis on Egypt. I found the section on Uru particularly interesting. Bongo writes in an easy to understand style. He seems to speak with authority. He simply states his hypothesis and presents his arguments. Students of history will enjoy Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians.

I thought I knew a little about Ancient Egypt. Apparently it was all wrong. Bongo believes that due to a climate shift – possibly a shift of the Earth’s axis-many Africans migrated to South America. That explains the pyramids in South America.

Bongo has a unique view of King Tut (Tutu) and of the Hebrews. Bongo sees King Tutu not as a King but as a savior. He believes Tutu was sacrificed. "There has not been any human sacrifice in Africa or the Middle East sine Tutu was sacrificed four thousand years ago. "

Forget what you think you know about Ancient Egypt, because it's probably all wrong.

Katanga A. Bongo says most of what has been taught in schools for the last few decades is factually inaccurate, and his book is an exhaustively researched tome that takes a different view.

For instance, Bongo says that it is a historical myth that Europeans introduced civilization to Africa.

"Long before the Greek and Roman Civilizations emerged, the South American Indians had introduced civilization to Africa, thereby making Africa the second continent in the world to become civilized," he says.

Bongo's extensive research has led him to conclude that the earliest humans evolved in Africa some three million years ago. He believes the "severe climatic changes" of Africa over the 13,000 years it takes for the tilt of the earth's axis to change, are the reason that humans left Africa and headed to South America and Asia.

Bongo contends that the ancient South Americans were responsible for several very important inventions:
* Clothing
* The loom
* Agriculture
* Pyramids
* The wheel
* Architecture
* Boat building and sailing.

They were also responsible for the concepts of:
* Oracles
* Talismans
* Shrines
* Mummification.

The Ancient civilization of Egypt began with the South American's relationship with an early African leader named Kufu for whom they built the first pyramid in Africa.

Always looking for better agricultural land, the Ancient Egyptians set out to find a "land of riches" and found it in the Middle East. Several families were "chosen by the gods" and sent to settle this land. Unfortunately the "land of riches" was infested with poisonous snakes and most of the "chosen people" were bitten and died. It was two centuries before there was another attempt to settle this land.

At this time, the largest tribes in South America were the Iroquois and the Moshe. The Iroquois were masters at creating poisons and were able to craft a poison that was effective in killing the snakes in the "land of riches." The African Priests named the new colony Eden. Civilization of the Middle East had begun.

Bongo offers a unique view on the Hebrews and the subject of slavery in Egypt. He believes these people were an offshoot of a tribe called the Urus that introduced the concept of monotheism to the Ancient Egyptians.

He also offers a different take on the story of Tutu-Ank-Amen.

"He came to save the world from human sacrifice," he writes. "There has not been any human sacrifice in Africa or the Middle East since Tutu was sacrificed four thousand years ago."

Although Ancient Egypt was originally an "outpost" of the pyramid civilizations of South America, it "was and still remains the most fascinating part of the pyramid civilizations...and the most influential civilization in all of human history." The civilizations of Ancient Egypt reigned for about four thousand years, he says.

When most people think of the ruling empires of South America, they think of the Incas. The Incas were not the first ruling empire, they were the most recent. Before the Incas, according to Bongo, came the Moshes and the Ware Empire.

"The rise of the Ware Empire was a major defining event in South America that changed the culture of the pyramid civilization," Bongo says. "The Ware Empire was the first major warrior empire and it dominated most of South America for about 400 years."
