Hello,
I started this discussion to hear your thinking about archaeological discoveries related to ancient Egypt. What do you think what are the biggest discoveries out there that affected our knowledge about ancient Egypt?
I found 5 important discoveries. Do you agree with these, or have other ones?

I would agree.

I believe you can add Nabta Playa.

At Nabta Playa the people herded cattle and cultivated crops. The Kushites cultivated pennisetum millet at Nabta Playa (c. 7950 BC ) and probably herded cattle (Miller, et al, 2010; Mitchell,2013).

A center of cattle worship was the Kiseiba -Nabta region in Middle Africa. At Nabta archaeologists have found the oldest megalithic site dating to 6000-6500 BC, which served as both a temple and calendar. This site was found by J. McKim Malville of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Fred Wendorf of Southern Methodist University.

This site is important because it makes Middle Africa the earliest documented site for cattle and millet/sorghum domestication.
