It culminated with the discovery of a 13,000-year-old alien body inside a tomb in the Giza Plateau in Egypt. In the early years of the Cold War, Russian military officials feared the United States had gained a tactical advantage through reverse-engineering alien technology, presumably by studying UFOs such as the one that crashed near Roswell. Determined to possess advanced technology themselves.
If true it could catapult the mystery into the league of the July 1947 Roswell alleged flying saucer crash in New Mexico, when it is claimed the US military recovered the bodies of dead alien pilots.
The ancient aliens myth suggests that civilizations, such as the Egyptians and Incas, were visited by advanced beings from other planets who helped them build the impressive pyramids and other monuments we see today.
These aliens have been referred to as ancient astronauts by believers of the legend.
According to reports with the video, which many suggest is an elaborate hoax, Project ISIS included several Egyptologists from the Soviet Academy of Sciences, scientists, and military experts.
The team was allegedly led by Sami Sharaf, a close aid of president Gamel Abdel Nasser of Egypt.
It is claimed the video was obtained by an unnamed Russian source who claims to have obtained the clip through the Russian mafia from secret KGB archives.
The video shows what appear to be Soviet personnel opening a sarcophagus, said to be in a tomb on the Giza plateau, to recover the remains of a mummy, which it is suggested is of extraterrestrial origin.
The Turin Papyrus; a connection?
It might turn out that the Turin Papyrus has something to do with the discovery of this Ancient Alien Astronaut. The Turin Papyrus also known as the Canon of Turin is another important ancient text. Even though it isn’t preserved completely it is an ancient text written in hieratic language. It is believed that the original list had over 300 names, detailing precisely the years, months and days of each reign of the kings that ruled over the lands of ancient Egypt. The papyrus is the most extensive list of kings available, compiled by the Egyptians, and is the basis for most chronology before the reign of Ramesses II.
The final two lines of the column, which seem to represent a resume of the entire document are extremely interesting and remind us to the Sumerian King list. They read:
‘… Venerables Shemsu-Hor, 13,420 years; Reigns before the Shemsu-Hor, 23,200 years; Total 36,620 years’.
The first Egyptian King, of the first dynasty was the God Osiris, who according to ancient Egyptian legends, came down from the skies in a flying ship. This flying ship is believed to be an ancient UFO according to Ancient Astronaut theorists who have a very interesting view on ancient history.
The expedition turned out to be very productive since the team managed to recover several “Alien artifacts.” According to reports of a senior officer of the KGB, 15 boxes filled with artifacts were found, the remains of a mummified alien body inside a sarcophagus and numerous hieroglyphic inscriptions. According to experts who translated the inscriptions, the text speaks of the return of the “winged deities.”
Those who participated in this secret mission stated: “during the inspection of the walls we have noticed a strange repulsive force coming out of the walls. We could not find any scientific explanation.”
