The Anu: First People Of Egypt?

The Annu First People Of Egypt

According to the  “Tera-Neter” Tile discovery made underneath the early Egyptian Dynastic Temple at Abydos, the Anu were the first people of the Nile Valley and founded Kemetic Civilization when they developed the Ta-Seti Culture of Pre-Dynastic Egypt recognised as the world’s Oldest Civilization.

The translation of the Glazed Carving depicting the Anu as the first people of Egypt describes the Black “Anu” Man as “The High Priest Tera Neter of the Temples of the God Seth of the Cities of the Anu Peoples”.

Although it is disputed, the Tera Neter Tile has been used as evidence to demonstrate that the Anu were the first settlers of Egypt or Kemet that developed a High Kemetic Civilization which may have been the result of a developmental cycle going back as far as 10 000 BC which was then inherited by Egypt’s First Dynasty under Narmer

According to the Anu Theory, the origin of Civilization in Egypt can be found in the first Black African settlers of Egypt, specifically the Ethiopian Anu.

It is from the Anu of Egypt’s Pre-Dynastic period that the Egyptians get most of their laws and culture including learning to Honor Kings and Gods, how to bury them, sculpture and writing all of which were invented by the Ethiopian Anu who first inhabited Egypt.

For instance, if the Egyptians had the calendar in 4245 BCE then it took the passage of several thousands years to amass enough data to create it, then it is rational to accept the existence of an established Pre-Dynastic Egyptian Culture such as the Anu paved the way for classical Egyptian Civilization. 

The Anu as the first inhabitants of Egypt were agricultural people who raised cattle on a large scale along the Nile Valley.

Most Ancient Egyptian Funerary Texts such as The Book Of The Dead and Pyramid Texts can also be attributed to the Anu Culture in the Dynastic Period beginning with the Old Kingdom.

According to Historians like Chiekh Anta Diop and Abbe Emile Amelineau, carved Ivory objects such as the Tera Neter Tile found at the Tombs at Abydos, especially the Tomb of Osiris, reveal in their origin that the first people to live in Pre-Historic or Pre-Dynastic Egypt were the Anu Black Africans.

The claims that Anu Black Africans were the first people of Egypt is also in agreement with modern Science which claims that Human beings first evolved out of the Mt. Ruwenzori area about 180 000-200 000 years ago.

Hominid remains have been found in East Africa’s Rift Valley Olduvai Gorge Region which suggest the existence of a gradual evolution of Hominids on the African Plains, most notably, Austolopethicus, followed by Homo Erectus about 1.9 million years ago, and then to modern man, Homo Sapien who emerged approximately 40 000 years ago.

The Anu people who first inhabited Egypt may have belonged to a group of these Hominids that left the Mountains to live on the open plains to create the Nubian Kushite Naqada Culture that would eventually result in the creation of Egypt’s First Dynasty under Narmer.

Rock paintings in the Tassili mountains of the Algerian Sahara which may be 7000 or 8000 years old also show whole communities of African people who controlled the area before the creation of Egypt’s First Dynasty.

The Rock Art of the Anu people who first inhabited Pre-Dynastic Egypt also depicted their life in the green Sahara with hunting, animal scenes, ox drawn ploughs also suggesting the planting and growing of crops. 

Egypt’s Nile Valley region soon became the hub of an emerging Black African Civilization with its own unique Black African Nubian Proto-Culture such which would later provide the Template for the creation of the First Dynasty of Egypt. 

Evidence of Black African Settlement in Pre-Dynastic Egypt showing signs of an Anu Proto-Nile Valley Culture has also been discovered at Nabta Playa in Egypt’s Nubian Desert.

This Settlement at Nabta Playa shows a developing Pre-Dynastic African Nubian Society that had domesticated wild cattle known as the Auroch.

In addition, Nabta Playa is recognised as the world’s oldest Atronomical Site where the Anu Nubians who first settled Egypt in the Pre-Dynastic era developed Astronomy by devising a Rock Calendar monitoring the movement of the Sirius Star as a way of detecting changes in the Nile River’s Flood Level for the purposes of ensuring adequate drinking water and pasture lands for their Cattle.

Evidence from the Nabta Playa Rock Calendar shows that the Anu Nubians of Pre-Dynastic Egypt had monitored the movements of the Stars and the Nile river for at least 8 000 years.

In addition, other artefacts found at Nabta Playa which were created by the Anu bore a very close resemblance to the Religious Symbolism and Iconography that would be later used in Egyptian Civilization.

For example, Palettes depicting Cow Horns found at Nabta Playa are considered to be early expressions of the Egyptian Cult of Hathor, one of the most important Deities of Ancient Egypt.

It is believed that during this time, the developing Anu Black Civilization that first settled Pre-Dynastic Egypt was called Ta Seti (Land Of The Bow) and it continued to evolve its Proto-Dynastic culture which included Hieroglyphic writing circa 3 400 BC that would later come to characterise classical Egyptian Civilization.

The Nubians Of Pre-Dynastic Egypt

Further evidence of the development of the Anu Ta-Seti culture of the first Settlers of Egypt was discovered at the Site of Qustul on Egypt’s Sudanian Border which had Nubian Tombs, funerary objects and other Royal artefacts of African Origin that were clearly the Template and inspiration for Dynastic Egypt.

Based on the above, Historians like Chiekh Anta Diop in Civilization or Barabarism and Anthony Browder as well as Independent Researchers like Robert Buaval in Black Genesis: The Prehistoric Origins Of Ancient Egypt have concluded that before the creation of Egypt’s First Dynasty,  the first people of Egypt were the Anu Black Nubian Africans of the Ta-Seti culture who are part of the important group of people in Africa before the Colonisation of Africa
