“The original inhabitants of Egypt appear to have belonged to the Hamito-Semetic group of peoples, along with the ancient Libyans and Berbers.”
“The Egyptian language had affinities with both the ancient Hamitic and Semetic languages but was an autonomous linguistic branch.”
“The Egyptian clearly differentiated themselves from their Semetic neighbors to the northeast, the Libyans to the west, and the Nubians to the south.”
“They appear to have inhabited the Nile Valley from the earliest times and essentially remained a homogenous group absorbing the intermittent flow of immigrants mainly from the northeast.”
