Egyptian dates (ancient)

Discrepancies abound in dating Egyptian dynastic periods.

Many scholars use the time line found in John Baines and Jaromir Malik's Atlas of Ancient Egypt, which is based on a variety of sources and current archaeological information.

If using one scholar's dates, footnote the source if possible (see April 1991 NGM).
