The Medjay: Ancient to Modern Times #2

The Medjay were herdsmen and warriors

The Medjay were a semi-nomadic people whose homeland was in the eastern desert ranging from Egypt to the Red Sea. They are mentioned as early as 2400 BC, when Egyptian texts recorded them as warriors serving with the Egyptian military.

Later Egyptian texts also document their presence as soldiers at fortresses built along the Nile in Nubia. Their role serving the forces of authority was so enduring that by the time of the Egyptian New Kingdom the name Medjay had become a word for police of any ethnic or cultural background.

Archaeologists equate Pan-Grave burials with the Medjay Shallow, circular graves containing distinctive black-topped red bowls are named Pan-Graves by archaeologists and are generally thought to be the burials of the Medjay people. Pan-Grave burials also include simple, rough incised bowls. Pan-Grave burials are scattered from the 3rd cataract to Middle Egypt, and their distinctive pottery is spread even further.

Every country invents the new way of war. In olden times, people fight with swords but nowadays no one can fight directly, they just invent the modern weapon and send it to the other country. They just not only invent the modern weapon also make a small weapon which we cannot see in our eye.

Ancient times was not so ancient. They used the most highly technical weapons that was available to them. Today is no different. We just found other ways to do warfare. A dagger would be a knife today. A bow would be a fire arm. If they had knew and understood fire arms, it would have been used. Thanks for the reply.
