The Uluburun Shipwreck is slowly -- and rightly -- changing many of the false conceptions that mainstream scholars have been propagating erroneously over the years about the ancient world, especially in terms of ancient navigation and seafaring traders.
Take a look at the About.com Guide about the Uluburun Shipwreck by K. Kris Hirst, and the links you find there. Especially read the material on the origin of the ingots found on board the ship, which involve Egypt.
I refer to the Uluburun Shipwreck in my book Ancient Signs
and reveal there some interesting analysis
of what was found on the Uluburun shipwreck
as bearing on important questions of ancient history.
Here is a sample;
Zannanza [designated to wed the Egyptian Queen] died before reaching Egypt [but his fate remained a mystery]..... Irene E. Riegner writes about the Akkadian term zanÄnu and notes that a derivative term Zununnê means "marriage gifts". It is likely that Zannanza was a name reference to a son as "the marriage gift" as it were for the Egyptian Queen, together with the royally laden ship."The Uluburun Shipwreck could have been Zannanza's fate.
We have more about that in the book.
Do we know more than mainstream Egyptologists about Ancient Egypt?
Yes, we do, at least in this case.
