Argent11 It covered some of what the Egyptians used, or didn't use.

mauserand9mm Well I know that and you know that, but the article that you posted link for was called "Tomb Lighting" and describes the Baghdad battery. The article doesn't state the obvious fact that there were no light bulbs around to produce light from the batteries.

Of course not lol. It only shows that they were aware of how to make them. But so did the Greeks and
Romans. Silk was an expensive and rare commodity. But the romans knew if a glass rod was rubbed in
silk it produced static. Not that they ever did anything with it,other than entertainin themselves.

But I don't think they started doing that until they started using the valley of the Kings.
During the New Kingdom, 1539-1075 BC. That's where most of the mirrors have been found.

DAVID. Thanks, I can't see how that could possibly work since corridors go different directions. CHARLIE.
