Yam was an African kingdom that existed in old times. Very little is understood about this ancient kingdom, and also what bit we do understand about it originates from a couple of Egyptian messages belonging to the Old Kingdom duration. Based on these texts, we understand that individuals of Yam had get in touches with, specifically trade as well as military, with the ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom. Aside from that, absolutely nothing much can be stated with particular about this kingdom.
Where Was the Kingdom of Yam?
The main secret regarding Yam is its precise area. There are some hints in the old sources as to where Yam is located. These are not clear enough, and also modern-day scholars have disagreed with each other as to exactly how such hints need to be recognized. The ideas for Yam’s whereabouts can be found in a tomb engraving called the Autobiography of Harkhuf . As the title of this text recommends, this inscription came from a guy called Harkhuf, a governor of Upper Egypt that lived during the sixth Dynasty (around 2345 BC– 2181 BC), and served under the pharaohs Merenre as well as Pepi II.
Harkhuf in a remedy for his burial place at Qubbet el-Hawa. ()
In Harkhuf’s account, the governor mentioned that he had made 4 expeditions into Nubia during his life time. Throughout the very first exploration, Harkhuf took a trip to the south with his father, the “ritual priest Iry”. The two males were there to “discover a roadway into this nation [i.e. Yam], which they managed to do “in just seven months”. At the end of the exploration, “all (type of) presents from it” were brought back to Egypt, for which he was “very significantly commended”.
Harkhuf Calms the King of Yam
Harkhuf’s second exploration is stated to have been a solo one, in which the guv “left upon the Elephantine roadway”. Like his first exploration, the function of this one was likewise for trade,
“His greatness sent me a 2nd time alone; I left upon the Elephantine roadway, and also I came down from Irthet, Mekher, Tereres, Irtheth, being an event of 8 months. When I descended I brought gifts from this country in extremely much. Never ever previously was such given this land. I came down from the residence of the principal of Sethu and also Irthet after I had actually checked out these countries. Never had any friend or caravan-conductor that left to Yam before this, done (it).” The
third exploration to Yam by Harkhuf was somewhat various in nature from the first 2 that the governor had carried out. Harkhuf does not discuss the duration of this expedition, but states that he took the “Uhet road”. Trade was probably the first objective of this exploration. When he showed up in Yam, he found “the chief of Yam going to the land of Temeh to smite Temeh as much as the western edge of heaven.”
Map of the possible location of Yam. ()
For one reason or one more, Harkhuf made a decision that the activity of the “principal of Yam” was not appropriate, and chose to interfere in the affairs of Yam. Perhaps he was aware that Yam would be no match for Temeh, or that a more powerful Yam would certainly be a threat to Egypt, or Temeh was one of Egypt’s trade partners. Whatever the factor(s), Harkhuf “left after him to the land of Temeh and I pacified him, until he commended all the gods for the king’s benefit.” Harkhuf used diplomacy, as opposed to armed forces might to pacify the chief of Yam.
On his return to Egypt, Harkhuf brought back a great amount of goods from Yam yet again,
“I descended with 3 hundred butts loaded with scent, ebony, heknu, grain, panthers, … …, cream color, [throw-sticks], and every excellent item.”
The Soldiers of Yam
Along with such priceless things, Harkhuf additionally brought the soldiers of Yam with him to Egypt, which excited the “principal of Irhet, Sethu, as well as Wawat” whose region they were going through,
“Currently when the chief of Irthet, Sethu, and Wawat saw how strong and also numerous was the troop of Yam, which descended with me to the court, and also the soldiers who had actually been with me, (then) this [chief] brought and gave me bulls and tiny cattle, and conducted me to the roadways of the highlands of Irthet,”
The soldiers of Yam are also confirmed in a message understood as the Autobiography of Weni , which belonged to another court official of the 6th Empire. In this text, the soldiers of Yam acted as hirelings during the pharaoh’s war against the “Asiatic sand-dwellers”,
“When his grandeur did something about it against the Asiatic sand-dwellers, his grandeur made an army of lots of 10s of thousands from every one of Upper Egypt: …; from Lower Egypt: …; and also from Irtjet-Nubians, Medja-Nubians, Yam-Nubians, Wawat-Nubians, Kaau-Nubians; and also from Tjemeh-land.”
A Fourth Expedition
Harkhuf’s fourth expedition to Yam was additionally for the function of trade. The difference in between this expedition as well as his previous ones was that the guv had actually gotten a royal letter from the 8-year-old pharaoh, Pepi II, whilst on his back to Egypt. The components of this letter was engraved on Harkhuf’s burial place, and the bottom line of it is that the pharaoh wished to see a dwarf that Harkhuf had actually acquired during his expedition,
“Come northward to the court promptly; […] thou shalt bring this dwarf with thee, which thou bringest living, prosperous and also healthy from the land of spirits, for the dancings of the god, to be glad as well as [gladden] the heart of the king of Upper and Lower Egypt, Neferkare, that lives for life … My majesty desires to see this dwarf more than the gifts of Sinai as well as of Punt.”
Damages of the pyramid complex of Pepi II. ()
Whilst Harkhuf’s account offers a considerable quantity of information regarding Yam, it has actually been explained that there are 2 inquiries which have divided scholars as to the area of Yam. The first has to do with the overall distance covered by the big salami between Egypt and also Yam (Harkhuf just supplies the number of months needed for his journey), and also the routes complied with by Harkhuf to Yam as well as back to Egypt (just what were the Elephantine and Uhet roads?).
As an outcome of distinctions in opinion, the location inhabited by Yam has been placed in numerous various places, consisting of “the desert west of Upper Nubia”, in Lower Nubia, further south below the six cataracts of the Nile, and also even further west in Chad.

As we wrap up our first month of… all this, the calls to “reopen the economy” from Republicans and rabid MAGA-hats has reached a crescendo thanks in no small part to the pile of Big Macs calling itself the president declaring his “total authority” to overrule state governments if he so desires. There was even a Confederate-flag strewn protest in Michigan where hoopleheads basically pleaded to have a global pandemic squirted in their eyes because Fox News taught them that “job creators” are worthy of their sacrifice.
But while smarmy, bearded dongs like Matt Walsh and the moron who created Dilbert echo Republican talking points to start dropping bodies now so we don’t have to wait for gold coins later, Wall Street delivered a surprisingly different message when Trump tried to get them all on the line for a conference call this week. Turns out the greediest f*ckers amongst us are not seeing dollar signs in forcing America to reopen early. In fact, they’re seeing quite the opposite and would really like it if the president could get his shit together.
“I really don’t understand how they are communicating on this,” one CEO told POLITICO on condition that neither they nor their firm be named for fear of angering the White House. “He’s got to stop talking about turning the economy back on and start talking about making people feel safe, things that are happening around testing and the health care system. That’s the only way you will really get the economy reopened over a period of time.”
To the surprise of no one, the call was a disorganized mess that accomplished nothing. In Trump’s defense, even I would think that this would be the exact crowd who’d gleefully jump on board with feeding lives into the economy woodchipper. But when even these clowns are saying, “No, actually, that’s going to make things worse, you idiot,” Trump should probably listen. He won’t, of course, but it’s fun to pretend.
Instead, the preferred approach is take the big hits now, get the virus in check, and restore people’s sense of safety while providing them with as much financial support as possible. Only then can the economy truly start to crawl back toward anything resembling normal.
Look, I’m definitely not any sort of economic expert. One look at my finances, and you’d scream. But one of my theories, that could be wrong in every way, is that we’re going to find out down the road that a lot of these companies easily weathered this hit. Hell, we’re already learning what a joke office culture is by how quickly everyone’s position was moved to work-from-home. Would these places have preferred not to take a two-month bath? Sure. Will they be fine? Absolutely. Naturally, that won’t stop them from still cutting jobs to juice some numbers, which is a problem that isn’t at all exclusive to the current shutdown, but try and have that conversation with red-faced MAGA-hats calling their state governors “dictators” for doing the 100% right thing to save lives.
Also, when this is over, good luck in getting those same right-wing crowds to recognize the hypocrisy of screaming how abortion is murder when they’re out here demanding human sacrifice to bring Applebee’s back. It’ll be neat watching this nightmare go right down the memory-hole. Real neat.
