Religious ties to ancient Egypt



By the 6th millennium BC, evidence of a prehistoric religion or cult appears, with a number of sacrificed cattle buried in stone-roofed chambers lined with clay.

It has been suggested that the associated cattle cult indicated in Nabta Playa marks an early evolution of Ancient Egypt's Hathor cult. For example, Hathor was worshipped as a nighttime protector in desert regions (see Serabit el-Khadim).

To directly quote professors Wendorf and Schild:


"... there are many aspects of political and ceremonial life in the Predynastic and Old Kingdom that reflects a strong impact from Saharan cattle pastoralists..."

Nevertheless, though the religious practices of the region involving cattle suggest ties to Ancient
Egypt, Egyptologist Mark Lehner cautions:

"It makes sense, but not in a facile, direct way. You can't go straight from these megaliths to the pyramid of Djoser."

 
 
Circular chromlech at NabtaOther subterranean complexes are also found in Nabta Playa, one of which included evidence of perhaps an early Egyptian attempt at sculpture.
