Reviewed by Francesca: The scenes and models found in Ancient Egyptian tombs have been misinterpreted by some as examples of childish behavior and beliefs on the part of the Ancient Egyptians, as proof in essence that they were our mental inferiors. The truth, however, is as astounding in its simplicity as it is in revealing the sophistication of their belief structures. These very scenes in fact provided the food and drink needed to sustain the tomb owner in the afterlife. This book covers the origins of these models, from their first appearances during the First Dynasty at Abydos and during the Old Kingdom, down into their final demise during the course of the New Kingdom. The models' placement within the tombs and the significance thereof, the relationship of the models to the tomb scenes, how they related to the owner and how they differed from region to region are all questions which are covered superbly in-depth in this fascinating 72-page book. Recommended for all.

book coverA Glimmer of Light from the Eye of a Giant
Tabular Evidence of a Monument in Harmony with the Universe
Joseph Turbeville
ISBN 1552124010

Categories :  Archaeology  
From the book cover: A mathematical combination of the Fibonacci series with a process of number reduction by distillation led to the development of several numerical tables that provide evidence of a direct numerical connection to the Great Pyramid and the cosmological order of the universe.

Reviewed by Francesca: What a title! How promising! The author may be ahead of modern thinking and mathematical inclinations and beliefs, but he sure has a clear view of what his own thinking process is. He says that many of the summation numbers and ratios he comes up with are present in the Great pyramid and in nature: i.e. in petal counts, in plant stems, in leaf arrangements and in pine cones. Whether the author discovered something new or only explained clearly something we simply never saw is irrelevant: His work remains exceptional and enlightening. This book may be small in size, but its contents follow an old law of nature explained to me by my own great-grandmother: 'Precious things often come in small containers and small doses.' Thank you, Joseph Turbeville, for your 'receptivity of any little nudge that life may give you.' And now, one question: Did the Egyptians know about quantum physics, and what they were doing while building the pyramids, or was it simply instinctive?

book coverHatchepsut
The female pharaoh
Joyce Tyldesley
ISBN 0140244646

Order
Categories :  Pharaohs & Queens  
Reviewed by Francesca: Hatchepsut... a name erased from monuments despite her importance to Egyptian history. As this book explains through archaeological and historical evidence, she was a remarkable pharaoh (and queen !) having done much for the country. Her expeditions and her relations with the numerous Thoutmosis are discussed in detail. A chapter is dedicated to Senenmut, an important figure in Hatchepsut's reign. Maps, black-and-white illustrations and photographs complete this useful book. Recommended for the interested reader.
